Friday HELL .....you might just show up every day ! BUT ..I know where your coming from ....these guys have us by the nads ..they aren't many that do hi performance work ...and even fewer that do "good" work .... So sometimes you have to smile while your bendin over ......

Semper,

Good engine building requires precision, care, and cleanliness. This guy has none of those attributes. If you get good engine work out of this bozo, it would be a miracle. I'd pick up everything, and get out.

He acknowledged that my boat will stay indoors, in his shop, covered, etc... from here on out.

He also said the boat will be completely detailed to my satisfaction when I go to pick it up.

This is really the best resolution I can expect---if he follows through with his promises.

sounds like he's going to try and make it up to you.
ide still show up unannonced a couple of times a week to make sure he's making progress. sqeeky wheel gets the grease.

exactly my plan. I'm surprise at this whole thing. He is actually somewhat famous....but known very well on the West Coast. I won't reveal his name or business unless he jacks me around again.

I would move that boat ASAP, and have another shop finish the job. Then I would take big azz dumps all over that guys front porch.
