They seem to be lurking but no longer interested in talking about their boat.

Here's a linky to the YF thread. Something smells a little fishy about this.

Just sayin'......

It does make one wonder what they were up to, doesn't it?

It seems like they may have been rank amateurs considering they posted photos of someone else's boat and gave a boat name and details that are so easily checked.

Since getting into the large yacht side of Waterworld I am constantly amazed by the number and variety of characters dreamers, crooks, and schemers who walk the docks and lurk in the corners of the business.

Brokers who have been around for a while have stories enough to fill a book. I wish one would write that book but I suppose the market is too small to make it profitable.

Get a few brokers together for lunch around here (sadly, not as easy since Chuck's closed its doors) and there are some great stories.

I had to stifle a laugh watching this one go down in real time over 3 forums. By the quality of stories my local broker has shared with me I can only imagine stories them Florida brokers dealing with the big boy toys could share.

Btw, good job outing them Rick.
