Thumbs down This just isn't right--How pissed would you be?

Here's a little background. I bought this 33' Powerplay in May of 2004. The first owner, then the 2nd owner (Trader1) kept the boat in very good condition. I have been waiting to own this exact boat for 3 years now. The boat was/still is in very good condition and I have been spending alot of money trying to make it alot nicer by replacing alot of the little things, but they do add up $$$$
I have it in a very well known Southern California performance boat co. getting the HP500's completely rebuilt. I bought a new steering wheel, 2 flame arrestors, 2 Fire extinquishers & mounts, 2 sea strainers, 4 fuel fill cells, 4 pop-up fender cleats (like on the Outerlimits), a new rubrail, etc......

I go to the shop a few days ago to see the boat and the progress. It wasn't there. ???? The owner said it's at his house....WTF??
I go to his house, the boat is parked in front of his house with a tree literally hanging over the boat. I don't know how long it was sitting there...he told me 1 night (doubt it) The deck has stains in it from the tree dropping "tree stuff" and it wasn't coming out. I tried wiping it, then using a little wax I had in my truck--it still didn't come off.
Then the last thing is that the only thing done is the rubrail, the motors aren't done and everything else waiting to be put on. The boat has been there for 2.5 months now with little progress. I also pay $295.00 a month for indoor storage that my boat could have been there staying clean!!


I will add that I bought 90% of the parts through Fred @ Trick Marine...NO complaints there.

That boat is sweet, I'd be furious. What the heck is that dude thinking? Did he ever give you a time frame for the work?

That sucks!!!

I hate to be the one to tell ya, but those stains look more like they are from birds than the tree!! Might take some work, but they should clean up.

Where's the bat - and make sure you "out" this POS once the work is done and the boat is back in your possession. Though with this record, do you want this idiot doing more work on your pride and joy?
