There you go again...You can make an assumption (of course you'll call it a fact) that he lied about the weight. But then you refuse to see that the boat is in fact stolen at this point...it just amazes me.

Either way - it was less than 30 minutes away. Any experienced trucker would have done this. I can't tell you how many thousands of $$$ I spent on weight tickets in my trucking days. The times I went straight out on the interstate without a weight ticket were few and far in between.
I don't disagree with this. My point was the the owner didn't "lie" about the boat's weight. He give a pretty reasonable sounding value for it and that most of us don't know the true weight of their boat!

I guess the morale of the story is that if you ever get you boat shipped that both parties would want to have the weight verified pretty early in the game.

Tropic, He is a CUSTOMER and if you want to stay in the transport business you don't pull the crap he has pulled. You appear to not even read or comprehend what has been written on here as the weight of the boat is immaterial. IT IS THE TRUCKERS RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK THE WEIGHT OF HIS LOAD AT THE EARLIEST OPPORTUNITY. The more you write on here the more you make yourself look stupid.

Given that the OP "lied" about the correct weight of his boat, does this give the hauler freedom to lie about where the boat is located, when it will be delivered and how much it's really going to cost? Just curios,

My Momma always told me two wrongs don't make a right and it's hard to remember lies but easy to remember the truth.

Re: Boat Held Hostage By Marine Transport Company

I'm just posting to be in on the movie royalties.

But I would like to add that it is difficult to have a discussion with posters who do not understand the "subjunctive." See wikipedia.

Re: Boat Held Hostage By Marine Transport Company

Tropical, you have stated over and over that you don't know (you just did again!) this guy Steadley, that you have only talked to him twice I think you said on the phone. So if you don't know him and have never met him, then how can you be so sure as to what his motives are in not revealing the boat's location? Stolen, lost, vaporized by a meteor - these are all equal possibilities until Steadley tells its location.

I can speak for myself that I am here to offer my personal input and opinion. That does not include sticking my nose where it does not belong.

Someone might do that if they knew where the boat is! Just by saying it's in an impound lot doesn't say much. Now, I don't know that Dan the trucker man hasn't told Old Bob where his boat is by now but if it is in an impound lot or "arrested" as such then it wouldn't cause any harm to tell the man where his boat is, would it? I do like that you are defending a man just because you talked to him. What if he is telling you the same type of tale that he told old Bob and Dasante, a complete fabrication! Then you would be falling victim to him like everyone else. I see that he did deliver the mast a month after the promised date. So where is the justification for that?

You know tropic...You are absolutely right about all this. I am sooooo wrong. I should have seen that indeed you have all the facts and this far out-weighs my meager opinions on anything. I'm so ashamed. Please forgive me. No need to respond...I will simply follow your wake. You're the best.
