So a guy calls me Friday and says he wants a Hobie Outback kayak same color as Baystalkers so he can use it for duck hunting. They are awsome duck hunting machines by the way. He also wants me to rig it up for fishing and wants a scottys rod holder, flush mount rod holder and LED lighting added. He promises to pick it up today. Well I got it all ready for him on sunday and installed everything he wanted but after leaving three messages for him, hes not getting back to me and never showed up to get it. I guess he either died since friday or changed his mind and wasnt considerate enough to stop me from rigging it up for him. So if anybody wants it Ill throw in everything I put on for him.
And if sombody else calls and wants me to rig one up ahead of time without a deposit Ill do it. Because most men stick to their word. I always say I trust everybody until they show me I shouldnt.

Barrel,
Post his name.
Nice looking yak, The one my old man got from you last feb. has not seen much use. LOL Can't tell a father NO can ya.

Did you ever get your surf cam running? let me know we could do something like barnacle bills. I could trade some services for a discoount on a wetsuit for jet ski riding.

Never know what could have happened, Although its easy to jump to conclusions. Most likely you are correct, but there may be some extenuating circumstances. Maybe give him the benifit of the doubt, he just may show/call.

Barrell,

It used to be that a man was only as good as his word...things have drastically changed. I had recently committed to buying something from someone here and he sold it to someone else before I could get to his house to pick it up...needless to say I was a little disapointed and wanted to make an issue of it, but deciede to just let it go....I treat others like I want to be treated. What goes around, comes around...

I can't tell you how much I'm lusting after that yak right now.

Just not in a position to move on it.

Hope someone gets it soon, sorry to hear that you got stood up by someone who apparently (there is the possibility there is a good reason for them not showing) is a slimeball.

If you don't mind me asking...

What was the original asking price of that setup? (Something you would feel comfortable publicly mentioning, I'm looking for a ballpark)

I may be interested in a third vessel in my plastic armada.

And I pay lots of bills before my word is needed. :D


[EDIT] What's the length from end of rudder bracket to the bow tip?

If you have his phone number and it's a listed do a search on it and get his address . Not to cause any legal problems but just to knock on his door and ask him WHY ! sometimes doing things like this can be very satisfying .
