We did the best we could. Dan, I’m sorry that somehow you didn’t know in the beginning. I seem to think someone said you weren’t looking for any more boats. I should have known that wasn’t true. I guess we could have stipulated that if one of the boats went for sale within a year, it should be offered to this group at the same price. Not sure that’s really our call but am definitely not happy with anyone flipping boats for profit in this situation.

Ps. I don’t recall the Vagabond ever being promised to anyone out of this group?..

This is about the same range of emotions I felt when finding out about Russ's boats being up for sale and calling Rob and finding out that his Vagabond had already been sold to someone not in our group that lived in Florida. I was not included in the group of the 'early notified' and was rather disappointed.

Within minutes of finding out at Arrowhead that Russ's Vagabond sale had fallen through I told Charlie and he called Rob and purchased it with three or four of us listening in on speaker phone. Rob's hesitation on the phone was priceless.

DrChip gave me the chance to purchase the Runabout at the same price that he had paid for it. I declined as I already have enough small Feather Craft boats.

Game playing and poor marketing among 'the group' has contributed to the situation we are seeing now, IMO, and it is not a very fitting honor to our recently deceased great fellow and friend.

RIP Russ.

Just getting used to the lay of this land.

Nothing but a flipper, no matter what he says. I sold one to him, same result. Won't happen again.

Al, I think if you look at who's doing the thanking, you'll have an idea of where they stand on the matter. Rob, JR and Mark, you're good guys for being there and doing what you did to help. Not your fault how it turned out.

I'm confused, stated reason for selling was too many boats, but "Looking for my next one"?

I'd click on "Thank you" after reading this but wouldn't want to give the wrong impression.
I hope it went to a good home.
