In Topic: A Bright Future for the i550

I'm here occasionally. Just to read. No sense in me adding fuel to this fire.
I'm working a way on things here. The only people I need to answer to, are the people that have a boat coming their way. And the people that have requested various bits and pieces. And those people know where I am in that process.
I'm not sure why there are a lot of people concerned with what I am doing, when they don't have a vested interest in what I am doing. They won't at any point have a vested interest in what I am doing and I'm pretty sure they already have boats of their own or that they are building or could be sailing.
As with any project, there are people for it and against it.
I thank the ones that are in the for column, even the ones that already have boats and won't be purchasing anything from me, who are behind me and message me with encouragement.
The ones that are in the against column. Well you are entitled to your opinion. There's not much I can do or anyone can do to change that. It is what it is. And wether you like it or not, I will be continuing on with what I am doing.
But if you really want to know somthing, just ask me. I will tell you. But I won't be airing my business on here.
I'm easy to get ahold of.
The people that have ordered, the people that have made enquiries and all the suppliers I deal with, have no problems reaching me at that email address.
So, those for and against. I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the boat you have built or enjoy the boat you sail on.
Life's to short for all the crap that goes on here.

Speculation is great, isn't it. Atleast I won't be the one who looks a fool.
Right now, the people that need to know, know.
Peter, your not one of those people.
I put an offer out to you, to PM me. It would have taken care of all your questions.
That offer has since expired.
Right now, there are people I trust with certain info. You are not one of those people.
You will have to wait, just like everyone else.
And yes, the claims of sales of parts and better yet, boats. Are very much true.

The bow part I am speaking of is the custom stainless bow stem fitting that Eric offers for sale as well as the motor mount the PDX boats use.
Yes the tooling has provision for the sprit.
As far as going of the "handle", I have no reason to, towards anyone else.
For a guy ( Erik ) who is supposedly a supporter of the i550 and everything related to it, he sure shows an odd way to get that across to people. As I said. I had planned to deal with him..but there is no way in hell I will now.
And as I also mentioned I would like to deal with anyone that is i550 related.
As far as parts or gear or anything related to the i550 and beyond, I will offer the best possible price on everything.
I'm not all about just looking after myself. I include everyone.
As far as what's going on, pm me. I will update you as best I can.

Erik, or as you liked to be addressed. Team Gladiator.

I owe you no explanations about anything, as far as my business is concerned, actually as far as anything is concerned. You could have played your cards the other way. I WAS interested in purchasing bow fittings and out board motor mounts from you. Not just one, but a bulk order, 10 of each for now. But your Dickness has got in the way. I have zero interest now. I would like to deal with as many people that I can that are already involved in the i550. Your loss.

As far as pictures go. You will see them when everyone else does.
Your Vapor Ware comments, are unfounded. They make you look like a Dick.

Just A Skosh. You have Erik, sorry, Team Gladiator pegged.

Couch, yes there will be a new boat close to your area.

So yes folks. Boats have been sold. 550, 551, 552. 550 and 551 will be staying in Ontario Canada.
And to shut the questions down about 552 going to Vancouver. The new owner requested a late July early August delivery.

I would also like to thank the people that have ordered i550 parts, a really big THANKS TO YOU.

There have been a few unexpected setbacks. But all hopefully will be smooth sailing for now on. I could have posted about those setbacks, but it only takes one Dick, to take those comments and really cause problems. So it's best not to give a Dick anymore info than is needed.

So that is it, things are moving along. And things will keep getting better.
For the people that have sent encouragement....a big THANKS.
For those that have chosen to send negative comments, and it's only been a couple people, stop being Dicks, life's to short.
