no A/T for me. deal went south. purchased a 2003 358 Sonic.

Frank's A/T 37AVH is pretty sweet, but for that type of cash, I would look at the cig's.
They have a 2004 Top Gun with some 750 Cobras I believe. I've been in both, and .....well you know.

I have had the opportunity to ride on both, and for my money I'd get the AT. I wish I was in a postion to get one, but unfortunatly I have to sell my 32'. I told Tracy that when "Best Revenge" sells she better not laugh when I cry.

I dont understand it..
it blows my mind,,, i have never been so disapointed in a purchase in my life as the last transaction and my wife thinks i am a complete f in idiot,. you know i think she is right...
it sucks because its supposed to be the happiest in your life the day u buy it and the day u sell it.. the money is huge for these things,, and i do expect red carpet treatment to some degree. i got that when i bought my wifes 745I and when i bought viper. and both of those combined didnt equal the darn boat $$$...
when u buy a house do u get treated like that? in some places homes cost less than thse boats..
dont they care about repeat business?
are there that many people buying 200k+ boats ??
i will buy a boat prob every other year and thats just because i am that way i get bored with chit,, and like change,
great story,,,
my buddy bought a hustler from a dealer i believe in ohio and traded in his 38 fountain about 1 mo ago and put a couple weekends on it and then 1 motor went south the dealer sent a local shop here 2 hp 500 shorblocks so they wuld ensure he would be happy..
I AM GOING THERE FOR MY NEXT BOAT I GAURANTEE IT..
THATS CUSTOMER SERVICE,,, YOU THINK HE IS GOING TO RECOMEND THAT SHOP I THINK SO..
i am not going to recomend the shop where i bought mine,, i gaurantee that...
its pretty simple to do good business, treat people the way u want to be treated thats all!!!

good luck and hope u find what u want... and make em earn their money.

Hey Doc, its James & Reba from Richmond, I will sell you mine for 200K and pick you up at you house in a LIMO and have CRYSTAL champaine, put you up in the nicest hotel and restaurants, heck I will even fill up the gas tank and have it detailed at your house.


Just Kidding, sorry to hear about your trip, good luck, see you at the poker run.

Docman:

Post the dealers name and shame them into NOT doing this to another OSO'er.

If you post the facts they cannot argue.

Don't have to post the aftermarket dealer's name.Anyone that knows the boat knows the dealer's name so every dog has his day.I guess when you sell 17 boats at $499,000 each in 5 months a $200,000 brokered boat is no skin off your transom.dealer still hasn't even called me.I guess he has nothing to say but i do.Thank the lord for the internet can be your best or worst advertising place...

Was it Thunder Dan's boat you were looking at ? I thought Dan always kept that boat well maintained.
