It is true.. we did stop selling HTM's when Steve died.. We weren't sure as to the future of the company I had actually talked to Steve the morning of the accident and sent in an order the next morning... It's really too bad such a great guy and boatbuilder. So as to why would someone bring back an 11 year old post to rant about a boat I worked on 3-4 years ago... Let's see if my memory serves me correctly Joshuah40 you bought a HTM that didn't run off of ebay for 17,000 and brought it straight to me to get it running. The boat was an absolute disaster interior was rotted... the entire engine compartment covered in oil.. rigging was a nightmare.. And you said "just get it running I don't have alot of money to spend right now" And promised me he was going to have me build an engine for it the next year So we cleaned up rerigged it got it running on the cheap. The next year Joshuah40 calls me and tells me he has a guy in Tennesee building an engine for it and he wants me to rig it for him... Fine no problem not what you told me but fine.. Over the next several months of hour long phone calls asking for all the free info he can get Joshuah40 rigs the boat himself.... Then all he needs is the drive put on because he doesn't know how... So he brings it to us and waits for us to put the drive on...then wants me to go over his rigging to make sure it's good which I look over... he takes the boat home then the phone calls begin how to set it up what prop??? So I let him borrow 4 Stainless props (Yea I'm really taking advantage of him now like all small business's do) In which I had to call repeatedly to get back and then when I offered to buy the prop that worked for $300 he didn't want to pay that much... So at that point I was done with Mr Joshuah Dolfi... So if anybody screwed up your boat it was you (also he kept telling me the engine builder screwed him come to find out he didnt pay his bill and they had to sit on the engine for 6 months so they charged him interest... So of course they are bunch of non educated salt of the earth Motherf*****ers too!!!
Next time you take to social media to blast someone make sure your meds have been filled and you have a legit gripe....Have a good day!!!!!!!

I know several people who have dealt with Kunkels and they have way more satisfied customers than most other riggers and engine builders around. They are stand up and decent people. You will never be disappointed dealing with Kunkel's Marine.
