I didn't realize Jeanneau made dinghies! Will that fit two comfortably?

Captain Amp! Did you have issues too? I must say a lot of these postings of alleged events seem to be groundhog day for my bud. He is trying to get his boat out as it is in the process of being sold but it seems a whole bunch of charters that we were initially told were not a problem to move have now become a problem and there are evidently penalties to pay before the boat can be released...amongst other things. We are hopeful they can be resolved...try not to give up hope on the essential goodness of mankind

Barefoot does not intend to respond to what are essentially a pack of lies by a few disgruntled folks out of many thousands who have chartered with us over the past 25 years, but for the sake of transparency, we'll say this -

a. captainampmiser is none other than the original mauigirl poster, still indignant 8 years on, and still posting falsehoods, albeit it this time under a different name.

b. littleships is yacht broker Tony Brewer of the Little Ship's Company in St Martin. His statements contain inaccuracies, but it's interesting that he refers to the yacht's owner as "my bud" when in fact he is representing the buyer and not the seller. The seller was well aware of the pre-booked charters as he had leased the yacht to the company.

They say that there are 3 sides to every story and we would hope that most folks are intelligent enough to do their due diligence and ascertain the truthful side for themselves rather than to be swayed by self-indulgent falsehoods.

I suggest that the moderators pull this thread, and any others posted for the purpose of unsubstantiated "bashing". It is not permitted to promote a legitimate product on this forum wihtout proper disclosure, why is the opposite side allowed? If someone wants to get on here and say "Here is the problem, and here is the police report", I'll be happy to listen. Otherwise, go cry in your beer and leave the legitimate sailing community out of it. Thank you.

I don't think the moderators need to pull this thread. It is up to the reader to decide whether they believe the facts or not. I have no opinion on this specific subject but I do not think it is the job of sailnet to censor it's members. Like was previously stated there are always multiple sides and the truth is somewhere in the middle.

I don't see the need to pull the thread either.....

however......

it is fair and reasonable for the charter business concerned to raise an objection based on the anonymity of the the complainant and its also reasonable to point out that while their may be validity in the complaints, we are looking at two supposedly injured parties since 2002.

There are usually two sides to every story and not every complaint is necessarily valid.

Now I do not know anything about Barefoot Charters. I've certainly never had any dealings with them but dirty dealings in the charter industry are after all not unheard of.

edit...I said two complaints.....more than that but it is possible that some of the complainants are the same people. Their is sock puppetry at work here. We'll try and sort it out.

edit...having re read this schemozzle and having realised that there are a number of sock puppets involved I'm thinking the thread is about to breath its last.

Justice demands the accused to see the accuser. If there are sock puppets at play and they will not allow themselves to be identified and their bias declared, the thread should come down!!
