Re: avoiding companies having money issues

What I have learned is only order directly from the supplier. Or with airboat builder that pumps out over 100 boats a year. No little shop using the next guys money to finish last months deal.

Alway order directly!

Helicopters, airplanes,cars and carnival rides all have the same problem when crashed. Still use all of those. I’m still waiting to see how it does too. Mainl...
