Re: biggerboat's building boondoggle blog

he gave me an update.

He said "the boat is ready to have the floor cut". I don't believe I'm being paranoid in thinking he hasn't done any work on it whatsoever.

He didn't update me on when he tanks are arriving. He also said he needs to drain the gas out of the old ones and he is working on getting barrels so he hasn't done that. He estimated 2 weeks once tanks get there.

Also, a hurricane is making a beeline to his place.

Re: biggerboat's building boondoggle blog

I just don't know how to deal with this anymore.

We had discussed two add-ons - a windshield and the tackle box. He texted me this morning to find out what tackle box I wanted.

The other issue we discussed quite some time ago was the durability of the trailer. He had hinted that it might be a good idea to do a little work on it to make sure it would make the long trip here. I agreed to pay for any work that would be needed.

So, I just texted him this:

"What is the labor cost for the tackle station and windshield? Also, what is the status of the trailer? Is it sound enough to make the trip here?"

He replied:

"The tackle station is probably a 10 minute install if we just mount the tabs on the leaning post and sit on the floor. I liked that 1 because it had some little trays and things on top."

Am I paranoid or is he being deliberately obtuse and/or not answering my questions?

Re: biggerboat's building boondoggle blog

major upgrades on a boat with the delays in getting parts takes many months to finish. and he has to juggle other business as well or they go elsewhere.
you are going to have to tough it out. and he has shown he is going to take his sweet time.
if you bug him too much you will make him mad and then what you get will be sub par work.
im not in florida now so storms are just property damage.

good luck on the boat. after its done you will forget about the time you had to wait.

Re: biggerboat's building boondoggle blog

OK, so I sent him a pretty long email and he called me back immediately.

I mean, ray is right but his communication is beyond horrible.

We spent about 45 minutes talking everything through and I honestly can't fault him for delays here but I did let him know his communication left a lot to be desired. He told me that he completely understands and he gets that from a lot of his customers.

He told me that one of the delays with the tanks was the tank people weren't clear on the exact tank size for this year of boat and had to get him to measure them. I'm sure this cost a few days. He also said he touched base with them last week and got the same answer - hopefully next week. He said he sent them another text today to get an update.

Basically, I told him that so much of this could be avoided if he simply shot me a quick text every week. He agreed.
