I was only stating facts. I still have a copy of the letter that I wrote to bimini yacht charters complaining of our horrible experience with her.

No grudge held here. I just have a long memory. I can choose how to spend my money.

In spite of Mary and her lies and deceit, we had a wonderful time and the sailing in then grenadines was great.

It's interesting to see how things never change.

I chartered with sun yacht charters back then too. They were excellent. I went with the moorings in Belize. They gave us a credit for 3 free days as compensation for mechanical breakdowns.

Let's just say, i have had enough experience to be knowledgeable.

Lastly, I only wrote after I saw someone being criticized for their views because more people did not share them. I saw that as an invite to sign in.

Btw, "welcome to the forum" would have been a nice thing to say in response to a newbies first post.

That's how civilized people behave.

Warren,

We have had a LOT of issues (in that thread particularly) with people signing on and pretending they are someone else. So please understand that when you signed on with your first post in THAT thread, we had alarms going off all over.

Don't take it personally. We have fun here, but we also try and keep it honest. If you knew the history you would have done the same if you were us.

Brian

Hi Brian

You sure are quick.

I have barely finished editing my post and you have a reply.

Nothing taken personally, I just don't know why people get so defensive for her. She made her bed. She should deal with the consequences whatever they may be.

I can attest to the fact that I have never posted here before.

I would suggest that alarms should go off.

I read the entire thread before posting and I chose my words carefully so as to be very accurate.

I also chose to leave out most details. I could have scanned the old letter and posted that. But what would be the point of that step. It would add very little. For example, I doubt that the glass pieces we found in our meat was her fault.

I did not go into the poor condition of the boat as perhaps that was out of her control. But, the many things in her control and the way she treated us should be public.

Warren,

It is not what you posted. It is that your first post was in this thread where we have had many issues. Do not take this thread as a representation of the entire forum, nor how we moderate it. If this post was only one of many posts you made (and not the first) we would not have been suspicious.

Anyways, hang around and have fun. SOunds like you have a lot you could contribute.

Brian
