I just "met" Fred from my Scott Summeral thread. From a private message he sent me I know everything good you guys are saying about him is absolutely true. The stand-up guys will cancel out the scammers every time.

Another thing, small but very significant. Whenever I talk to Fred on the phone, he NEVER rushes the conversation. Even though he might be the busiest (or at least one of them) member on our Board, he always finds the time to really talk.

WOW, its not like Fred to not respond to one of these posts with a big "AWW SHUCKS FELLERS, IT TWEREN'T NUTHIN" If all marine businesses were run by Fred and those like him, there wouldn't be a bad business forum!!!!!!

here's my Fred story....

I bought parts off some guy. Mailed him over $ 3,400.00 and three weeks later
still no parts. I had spoken to Fred a few weeks earlier about some other things.
Well I knew this guy was in Fred's neck of the woods, so I called him.
After giving him the info he immediatly e-mailed this guy and told him he would
be at his place the next morning to pick up either my parts or my money.

The guy immediatly contacted me ( pissed off to say the least ) and said the parts
would be sent immediatly. Got them 3 days later!

Talk about a person going above and beyond. Fred owed me nothing but was just
so pissed that I was getting the run around that he got right on this.

Fred if you read this , you know I'm still extremely grateful. And will make good on my promise to take you out to dinner on my next trip down to FL.

OK who's got a better story than that?

P.S. this guy lived about 2 hrs. from Fred

Mike he told me the same story,I think we know who your talking about


Yee I think Fred is the kinda guy that likes helping people and his hobby is his job now and he is able to do it know.

Fred the more you grow the more worried the west coast guy's are going to be

I hate the guy!!!! Look at the damn war that he and I have been involved in for all this time. Guy cuts me no slack and now he is farming work out to try and beat me, then he sells all the parts off his boat to set himself back more and then I am what.... sapposed to feel sorry for the old fart when he looses yet again and I make it three and 0.....
