Jay-
Glad to see you got your project up and running and were able to have some fun with it this last summer.

I think some of the comments may have come out a little too bitter- there were a lot of folks taking time out of their day to give you advice, contacts, and even parts to rectify your situation. I would imagine the feeling was one of abandonement when you went to another site and didn't keep us all updated on your project boat, especially with the length of some of your threads here.

Hope you are able to achieve your Apache dream!
Jim

Jayl13 What kind of boat is it?Looks like your finished with the motor dept.Don't worry about the questions. If you never ask you will never learn anything.

I have a friend that bought a old donzi and I tried talking him out of it . But he was determend to by it no matter what . It was a project boat and he's still working on it . He is proud of it and it does look alot better now. He still has problems but he is enjoying it.Atleast he can say he built it him self . I try to help him when ever he needs help and I respect his choise.

good luck with the boat and job hunting.
Rob

I think Jafo pretty much summed it up Jay. Alot of people here knocked themselves out helping you with your project. Like me,You never would have gotten through it without this place....advice,FREE parts,{You met IKE here !!!} Then...You leave & start posting elswhere I think that might have pissed off a few people that helped you {Not me..What do i know? } Not picking on you guy...just letting you know how it looked "over here".

Scott your a gentleman and a friend and I appreciate what you have done!
I have treated all of you like family and I come on after Ike told me about this post to find this BS.
I still refuse to bad mouth any of you but I take this post as a big slap in the face.
Abandonment Absolutely not, I lost my job 5 months ago and I am trying to find workIf any of you thought abandonment Im sorry that is NOT what happened.
Just trying to keep my house and keep my life on track

Thumbs down OH CRY ME A RIVER!!!!

Dude this is what I found in about 20 seconds over on Fast boats:

I did my best to defend this site over there but seems most of those guys just have it stuck in their head that that is the only site to be a part of if your a somebody
Okay so Im a nobody
Ill bet you the first 10 people that read this reply to this thread know what boat I have, what problems I have had and what all I have done to fix it all!
So I guess this no body is not such a nobody at all
Also I get tons of you guys laughing your asses off and rolling on the floor as sort of a forum funny guy
That is why I posted all my pics and video;s over here
Im not paying for the guys that that site to sort of look down on me and wonder why I just dont go out and buy a 42 outerlimits
Different walk of life in here on this board, more down to earth people with more realistic boats.
the fantasy boaters can stay over there
I am very pleased with this site and Like Tinker, I plan on being here way more than I have been and now to try to get my post count up to about 1500 HEHEHEH
J

I guess that all the help that you got over on this site was because we all have really expensive boats and were snobs? All I know is that LOTS of guys gave you TONS of advice and helped out as much as they could. We all felt for your story as lots of guys have been there before. You often times asked questions but when you got answers you often times ignored them. The fact that this post is even up is evidence that people cared. Last I checked there is a large variety of boaters on each site. I after all have a 30 foot Formula that I paid a wopping 7 grand for and have been putting my heart and soal into as you have been to yours. NOT ONCE have I ever felt that anyone on this board or the other looks down at anyone with a smaller boat (except for the Catman ) You got your carbs from a guy on THIS SITE FOR FREE, probably due to the fact that he is a "fantasy boater" Sure we have other guys that own boats that I can only dream about but ya know what not once in talking on the board or meeting in person did I ever feel like a lesser person.

Tell me Jay why did ya come back? Just cuz Ike told ya about the post and you felt the need to defend yourself? Or was it an attempt to make us feel bad and elevate yourself above us? Fact of the matter is you did talk bad about the board I can point to a couple other references over there if you would like.....

Jon

Very nicely put Jon...

Hey Jay, I actually felt sorry for you that you got saddled with the POS, I know you had to get what you could afford, and I agonized with you for the last 2 years. Problem after problem I was hoping you would get that sucker running,, a million questions and a saga and a half i'm glad your finally up and running.

I was just not too thrilled with your comments regarding OSO on the "other" site, I know you have never said a thing about me in particular and have always been very nice with us. People answered every question you EVER had time and time again, a million times over and you went over there and blasted the same people who helped you.. sorry if my comments were out of line, after going back and re-reading them I applogize, but only ever had your best interest in mind.
