I am close to closing my Deal with them.I will let you know how it turns out. I have a feeling this thread won't be deleted, just keep it on a professional level and state the facts. The boat was surveyed yesterday. Minor problems were found but nothing bad.
Starboard engine has leak around the manafold and riser. National says they will take care of it. I hope to close this deal in the next couple of days.More to follow.

Default I bought my boat from them....

......and I'd like to tell you it was uneventful, I wont get into details, but we had a financial agreement between my sales guy and I that Bill didn't want to honor. It went down as agreed, after a battle. Bill was less than pleasant in his dealing with me, even before I made the deal. They did come through and tony was respectful even when things got ugly. Give them a chance to resolve, I think they know a little bad press on here can go a long way. They do have the inventory. Closest to mi. riverview near chicago was next closest. good luck

They are actually in Warren, Ohio about 20 minutes from Youngstown and about an hour from either Cleveland OH. or Pittsburgh PA.

Some people love them, and others have problems with them. The number one complaint I have seen is that they don't return emails or phone calls for requests for information. I have to believe that they are well aware of the problem and would hope that they are trying to come up with a solution.

Joe is a salesman at National and is at least making an attempt to communicate with Daryl and I hope the problem can be resolved.

National Marine is in my town and I want them to do good. I would try and help out any OSO member in any way that I can.
It is becomming harder to cheer them on when you see members having problems. I relize that every business is going to have some customers that are not happy for one reason or another. It is how fast that business tries to work with that customer to satisfy the problem that will make for a good relation.

I'm not trying to stir up anything. Please don't take it this way. Why does it take somethings, meaning things in general, to get this far, before anything, even a return phone call before things can even get talked about?

I realize some people can never be pleased and their is two sides to every story. I hope they do get their problem worked out. I guess I have to much time on my hands.

With National Marine being close to me, with an awesome inventory too, they are on my list to consider when going bigger.
