Yeah, the guy was a wealth of information and very pleasant to talk with. I never had any business dealings with him so I cant speak to that issue but he was a dang good guy and always willing to help (me being a newbie) out and would take the time to share his experience and knowledge. It is a shame what happened with him. I wish it would have worked out better for everyone! Sorry to hear about your bad dealings with him.

He built a whole boat for me and I was very happy with the results. I did feel like the man had a lot of great knowledge he was willing to share. When my boat was finished is about the time it seemed like things went south. I was thinking I heard he got involved in the oil industry after the fall out. But that was just a rumor.
