Default What OSO is all about!!

I posted a request the other day for OSO'ers in the Pittsburgh, PA area to look over a boat deal I am pursuing. I'm in Kansas City, about 1000 miles away.
Board member "Enticer" ponied up with an email on Thursday and by Sunday he had arranged a meeting with the Owner and drove nearly 50 miles each way to inspect. Sunday morning I got a phone call describing what he found and by that evening he sent back over 6 minutes of video documenting the inspection.

Negotiations are moving forward with the purchase, but I owe it all to Enticer for spending his Sunday helping out someone he doesn't even know, when he could have easily been out on his Eliminator Daytona tearing up the waters.

Thanks again Jim aka Enticer. You're a top-notch guy!

Thats the type of people on this board, I am relatively a new member, but think the quality on this board is worth the Advertising dollars spent and a place to relax online.

hats off to you "Enticer".

Thumbs up


Havasu Hangin did the same thing for me a few monthes back.
boat turned out to be pretty ruff so i didnt persue it.
he saved me a plane ticket , wasted time , and the frustration of finding out it wasnt for me.

all he got was a bottle of crown and my sincere appreciation for his efforts.
thanks again HH.

These guys are the best!
If your boat has a sail do you ride a horse to the ramp?

I'll have to second that - dyno and his wife willingly played host for Mrs. dockrocker and I at the Smoke on the Water run earlier this year. We just met them on the dock Friday night, and they took us out all day on Saturday.

Good folks here on OSO (and the occasional bad apple, but they get smoked out pretty quick!)

Similar thing happened to me two summers ago. I blew a drive and posted my woes on the board. MERLIN540 and KHADLEY saw my post that day and offered help. I droppped off the drive later that night to Charlie. AFter a new lower unit and prop shaft I was down only two days. Thanks for their hard work, but I never would have found them without OSO.

I handed my 2000 28 sunsation to an fellow OSO guy before I had the check in my hand!

I knew he was approved but the bank sent the check late so I just said hell take the boat The check is in the mail.
