Well audio falls flat on his face. He does not know if he sould cry or toss a f-ing fit!!!!! I was kicking ass this evening and taking no names and when I got to the last 6 feet of sanding off the bow I hit wet paint. THE GELL NEVER KICKED!!!!!! I am SOOOO F-ing pissed off it is not funny. I am thinking I got old Gell. If that is the case then then these guys that sold it to me can pay to have it all stripped off and resprayed. Well that looks like the end of any chance I have to get in the water for Labor day.

Damn Jon, that has to be disheartening. I feel for you bro. At least you are looking for solutions instead of just ranting and talking about giving up. Let us know what you find out.

Ok I think I stubled but did not fall. My painter came over this am as soon as he got my message and was right on it. By the time I met him at the shop at 7am he had already gone over the entire boat and made sure that the problem was localized. He just left at 11:00am and he has all the bad gel removed from the boat. That was close. He was VERY appologetic and knows I am on a scedual. He even blew off two apointments this am to keep me moving forward. So I guess I can not and will not complain. I even told him per our discusion before he started to shot (that there would be no warrantee what so ever since he was just painting and not preping) that I understood if he needed to charge me something for the work he was doing. He would have NO PART of it and said this was his fault and he was going to fix it. He even said that he was not going to charge me for the respray on the bottom!!!!! I am one happy customer at this point and I have nothing bad to say about his performance. It was not his fault it was just a problem with his paint machine that we did not pick up when he aplied the paint. Nice to have stand up people doing your work for you!!!! The down side is that he can not spray it tell tomarrow so I will be a little behind in my schedual but I think I can still pull this off with some added time in the evenings

So I think I may be in 3rd place now

Jon
