$$ and Spending Sailnet?

The dreaded TARTAN and Cam,
So now that we have ben CENCERED BY SAILNET...

Does your e-shopping change?

I am going to buy the following this year....

1.better sextant.......$300-$500..
2.Self inflating vest with harness x2...At least $500
3. binocks with a compass....$300 to..Still thinking....

Sailnet has lost my business over this TARTAN issue.

My thoughts

They haven't lost mine. I've never met the people who run this place, but I'm grateful for this remarkable service. I think you're peeing on the leg of some really good-hearted and hardworking folks...

One last thing... they lost your business but you're going to continue to use their forum? If you find their actions so unforgiveable, why don't you leave altogether?

Leave altogether?

"I think you're peeing on the leg of some really good-hearted and hardworking folks..."
A quote from you and i do not see it as that.I see it as some good hearted hardworking folks that are getting PISSED ON....

I agree in spades with Sailhog; on both points.

The sailnet forums are a huge resource, adn quite valuable to me personally.

The "TartanIssue" is an unfortunate side-effect of our litigious society; but understandable from sailnet's standpoint.

As to shopping through the sailnet store; I have never really connected the two in my mind. As long as I recieve good price and service from them I will continue to buy from them.

Sir,
It is nothing to you because your not involved ina a Tartan warranty problem.
And your probably not going to buy a Tartan in the future me thinks..

Meantime the lawers are doing well........

Yes,
SAILNET is a huge resource to me also.

So how do you tell the LAWERS and the people that keep this form alive you are unhappy?Tell them here what you would of spent.........

You SIR say and i quote,
As long as I recieve good price and service from them I will continue to buy from them.

TARAN lawers have shut down your and others input here if you did not......

The lawyers would have done much, much better if sailnet decided to fight.

It's not nothing to me because I'm not a Tartan owner. it's much ado about nothing because nothing more will come to all this here. The info is out there for any informed buyer to see.

As always, buyer beware.

You might want to invest in a spell checker... almost every post you have made has serious spelling errors, and it does make your credibility drop quite a bit.

Hint: Lawyer has a "Y" in it...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
