Chris, in all honesty, this thread was never truly about the Venom 32.

we were also told it was walking distance from the main part of town, near one of the bars dont remember which... the house was 1/2 hour drive from everywhere... so we always had to worry abut who was driving, and it was between masher and tantrum they were teh onl;y ones that had trucks there..

all in all we had a blast, im not sorry we rented the place and i do thank jim, but dont feel he was intirely upfront about many issues...

i dont have a problem with jim, we did damage some stuff, i dont feel the house was perfect when we left and we paid for what we did.. some feel for how he portrayed the house to us, it should have been a wash.. either way, we had a blast.... when jim told me about the stolen items, i had someon go and take pics of every inch of that house, i had a realitor go and i told her i wanted to buy the and i heard it had issues, she took pics of everything, and things that were visableand were missing, were missing.. so take that as you may.. the realitor told me to stay clear of the place....lol
This is the straightest post on this thread.
Thanks for the post. I was in and around all weekend .....as a taxi and guide.

And my dog is not even in the same county. For the record.

Stecz, Weapon, thanks for at least telling the truth on this stuff, Masher knew of the burns on the deck and burnt deck rail, If you want to call the realtor and ask her if the items were taken her name is Gayle with Reece and Nichols real estate, phone 573 286 8595, she can tell you about the damage and stolen items as she was called to the home sunday to be a witness of the stolen items. Boat was given to Illinois dept of conservation, not dmv in missouri, again not a true statement. Bogus bill, well lets see, boat got to us molded, mildew, and even Trent said it had been sitting in a field in Florida for months, cover was schredded, no props, I spent 1,000$ to get boat to loto, detailed boat, fuel, paid storage outside for 1 year, winterized, told venom to come get it for a year, my lawyer sent them the bill for these items, they refused to pay, so we said just come and get it. they did'nt , I then protected their boat by putting it into indoor storage at weapon X's building for the winter and paid him money, then when he moved out of the building, we again called, sent certified mail to venom to pick up their boat, Venom's lawyer even called mine and said they owed us for keeping it and preserving their asset, and his client was just low on money and wanted to pay nothing, we finally said you owe nothing just come to loto and get your boat, It sat all winter and summer again, me paying for it, It was finally moved to the granite city boat facility and kept in heated storage, venom said the boat was stolen, but when they saw over 12 written correspondance from my attourney and Venoms, they said to file a lien on the boat for storage, the vin numbers were scratched in the transom and the last number looked like a 2, but was an s, we filed liens, and now the boat can never be sold, the boat was in better condition when we called consevation dept in Springfield, Ill than when it was sent to us by Sal at venom, He pushed Midweswest performance marine to be the loto dealer for his boats, but when we tested the boat it was totally uncontrollable in the water, Sal was to fly to loto over july 4th 2005, to add weight to it, he never showed up , what would you guys do as a dealer if someone sent you a pc. of s--t for you to sell, then you said just come and get your boat we don't want to rep. your venom, and they never come to pick it up, should I just left it on the side of the road, believe me it crossed my mind, If you want to confirm all the work done to the boat and how bad it handled call Justin hamilton, he worked for me at the time, 314 471-5849, he can answer all these questions with the truth, why can't you guys just be honest like Stecz and Weapon did on here, these are the truthful facts, and these mentioned people will verify all of this, like me or not is ok, but I just want everyone to know the actual facts. Jim

I'd rather stay in a cheap motel than go through any of this.
