Knot,

Shell game ...nothing more. Pure scam. "Contract..6 months to payoff trade, selling boats they did not own, holding notes they had no right to hold" . No one PLANS to get caught. This house of cards came down.

Your honor..."I didn't mean it." These guys were no dummies..they were real good.

I feel for the manufacturers that floorplaned the boats OL,Fountain,Cig. They will have to take the inventory back.

I bet you wouldn't be so forgiving if it was your money, time or credit report at stake.

What if you went to buy a car and the guy said sure here you go. give me your money I'll pay it off in the next 6 months...huh...thats what I thought. Didn't know what was going on..please.

I suspect that Skip at Cig may prove to be a pretty savvy businessman... my understanding is that Cig will not let boats leave the factory until paid in full. That may prove to be a very good thing!!! As for pending orders..... lets just say that the market may be getting even more buyer friendly.

I received a check from Nat'l for excess funds for the 29 scarab i bought from them last month. Just deposited check on thursday 8/12/2004 was notified today that check bounced $2500.00...and spoke with them 5 minutes ago and they cant issue any checks until situation rectified and they still owe me $2500 for sales tax. I was told POINT BLANK....THEY HAVE NO $$$$

God - I feel awful for you guys. I lost some money due to a very similar situation a few years ago in Syracuse. I really wish everyone luck in getting their boats/money/etc. back.
