Ya, I don't know anything about this Clem character but I remember reading some news articles about some guys selling preproduction boats, taking deposits, promising to build boats and then moving on to another state with no boats being built or ever speaking to the customers again. The guy I'm talking about did this for like 4 years in like 8 states.....Is this the same guy???
The other guy you are talking about was/is MERC575...He used to work for Baja, sold a bunch of stuff on here, never delivered and then faked his death on the board....A couple of days later, after a flood of sympathy for his wife the truth came out and all of a sudden she no longer thinks he's dead....what a mess that was!
DanB, thanks!
Not too far at all...That's a great island for it's very steep incline and deep approcah. The boat is only about 2-3 feet on the island(pulled on there by hand) and is almost free to float off, hence the need for an anchor...The transom is in about 4-5' of water. You can push it off very easily by hand or just idle it in reverse. It looks worse than it was probably because of the small pic size and exceptionally clear water!

OK.........all. Just a brief story to update you all. Jim Clem (Klym) used to be the owner of Awesome Boats. He did deals all the time and alot of the..I mean alot......were not above board (saying it mildly) A real nice guy to deal with........but if you did not keep a close look on the money, your boat and he would be south (so to speak).........leaving you out in the cold. He also had past experience in Arrow boats and I can't remember the other brand he made and sold. That is as far as I want to go in to it with out making some people upset. I'll deal with them at the Miami Boat show

But as you can see from the responses ....there are quite a few people he pissed off and ripped off......before and after the sale
