I would be very happy if I recieve the outboard. And I hope you sort out the problems with the other people.

Obviously this wasn't the smoothest ebay transaction, and I did notice that you sold a large number of propellers and spares without problems.

It would be a great help if I recieve it, as I did loose out on a large amount of my boating budget. I will let everyone know how it goes.

FWIW Dan I don't think you're a crook-just a bloody awful businessman.

I've spoken to several of your customers in the past couple of years and they ALL said they had the same trouble with you. This sounds like exactly the excuses you gave to them too when you didn't deliver.

A bit of friendly advice - If you ARE just a shit businessman then give it up before you piss the wrong people off again. You have a comparable reputation now to Springbok Motorsport and Springbok Mick. Maybe undeservedly so but you'll have a hell of a job losing a reputation like that. I didn't even hear about you on the net to start with - word of mouth got 200 miles...(note-this is NOT a threat!) There was one customer who didn't receive the goods about to come looking for you with blunt instruments at one point a while back. Does that tell you something?

I could go into much greater detail but there really isn't any point.

It would be nice if you weren't floundering out of your depth this time but somehow I doubt it.

You can prove me wrong by sending SamT his outboard.

Christ, I wrote an ebay guide saying avoid the guy and I'm getting people sending me messages saying he's ripped them off.
