Disagree all you want do things differently, who cares.. it's not my $$.. Go of your way to call my buddy an *******. Sorry but I got his back.
i also have his back.i let everything settle and i reread that mess several times.endevour32 changed his mind after going one direction,hell my wife does that all the time and he has the right to do that.imo,he crossed the line when he on a public forum belittled the man he origionally asked for help.a lot of info came out after the fact but the bottom line is,NO NEED TO BELITTLE THE GUY HE ASKED TO HELP HIM.yes,if i was joe i would have gotten mad to.i am a pretty good judge of charecter and i know who was out of line.i will also say that if i felt joe was wrong i would have told him so and we would still be friends!

I find this funny to, like when someone asks about which boat they should buy, then some people will list brands like they know all about those brands - heck they never driven nor been in 90 % of the boats they are talking about.

Anyways I found this one day on facebook, a guy was asking questions about his Mercruiser 496 with running problems and some guy replied to help, his reply was my exact words - word for word that I posted up here before, I understand the guy was trying to help that OP out on facebook but . I laughed my tail off and never said anything until now. I seen this happen before from someone else in a thread up here that was about a year ago or more but could careless..Just saying no big deal on my end.
Welcome to the world of "cut & paste"...

I didn't intend to rehash the other thread. I would like to point out a couple of my opinions but that would just start the debate over again. I didn't want this thread to turn into another mess either. I was just pointing out that a tech thread will get a lot of different answers and the OP has to sort it out and decide his direction which will leave some people thinking that they were ignored and wasted their time when that's not the case. And spring is close as I predict a mild March and boating by early April so get the boats ready and hope that we are dewinterizing them within two months. I'm picking mine up from Brian Orlandi's shop (shameless plug) tomorrow where it got the 525 top end service.

If anyone wants to reread and rehash the debacle thread, phragle gets a 10 for hitting the nail on head , too many cooks in the kitchen and the chit hits the fan. Hopefully everyone will get past it and the excellent info will continue as I for one love the vast amount of information to be gained!

I didn't know what the fuss was all about. I haven't been on much lately and totally missed that abortion of a thread. I just read it and all I can say is.....WOW.

For a while it wasn't safe to go in the tech section less risking getting splattered with the chit being slung . Glad that's over . I gotta go wash up now .

I did the same as I was clueless. Obviously it was the locked thread so I did some late night drama reading. Emotions were definitely running high!
