I've got no problem with them talking about how happy they are.
It is the ones who try to defend the data that we have turned up about unhappy owners and unhappy vendors and warranty and unpaid bills lawsuits and unpaid court judgments that I get suspicious of. (And of course the ones from certain suburbs in Ohio!
It is sufficient in my opinion that potential new and used Tartan buyers understand that there may be significant issues that you don't find in the brochures and are thus able to take measures to protect their deposits, investment and personal safety.
How many people actually check Sailnet before making a purchasing decision?? Nah. It is just like every other boat show I have ever been to:
1) They know of Tartan.
2) They are walking the show and moderately interested in buying a boat.
3) They walk on board. They like it better than the others.
4) A good salesman "sales" them.
5) They sign the contract.
6) They get financing.
7) They own the boat.
8) THEY READ SAILNET AND GO CLEAN THEMSELVES UP!
