Re: Boat builder ripoffs.

No, he's right. If you aren't driving away with a boat in your rearview, you shouldn't be paying 100%. If the shoe fits, wear it but don't be offended. It is what it is. I'm not saying 100%. But why would a builder invest a large amount of money in an order and possibly get stuck with it? A builder...

Re: Boat builder ripoffs.

I don't feel sorry 1 bit for these people that get screwed over. If you are that damn stupid not to do some research before handing over your money or paying for a boat 100% up front then you got what's coming to you. Your a dumb ass and deserve it!

Re: Boat builder ripoffs.

Like Tony said on another thread a builder who wants 100% payment up front ought to be avoided. No one should pay any more than 50% for a deposit in my opinion. To order a boat, make full payment and be waiting a year or more is not a reasonable situation. If someone claims to make 12 boats a year ...

Re: Polishing Airboats

Steve; I don't have to worry about polishing MY boat. I just crank it up each Friday evening and run it through the saw grass before heading into town for a "MAN'S NIGHT IN". Besides, the ladies that I pick up are blind in one eye and can't see out of the other. They are hard of hearing and are glad...

As I wrap up my night, I hear the cry of what I think is a Limpkin. They never shut up. It seems early for them but :slap: . Did some one say that they are good eating? I can't count on that. Some one said that the Muscovy Ducks were good eating. BS. I tried them 40 years ago and they are no better ...

Moving the front mount over 1/2 " did not work. My friend came to camp from Homestead twice and we were not able to "patch" the problem. I had 2 plates here that Billy Kline had cut out for me for repairs to my frog boat. They are 5x8". I bent a 45 degree angle tab and bolted them to my rudders. A f...
