Yes I did. I was initially extremely unimpressed at waiting over 2 months for a reply to an email because one of my pet hates is suppliers who ignore me when I want to spend money! I had not dealt with them in the past (didn't have a boat) but a number of people here do, and speak highly of them, which was why I persevered.
However when I eventually did get an answer back from Charles Oakley he couldn't have been more helpful, was very apologetic and explained why he had missed my emails etc etc.
He also came up with a price which was by some margin better than anything else I had seen. So my initial impression was poor but I am glad I persevered
