Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

WOW! I gotta say that I am blown away...

I learned of Smack's boat issues last week, so I ordered some BFS stuff... Then, over the weekend I learned that there are bigger issues in his life, so I figured my order will take a while. It would be no big deal if it took a week, or a year, I'm happy to help him out.

Tonight I get the following in my inbox;

The comments for your order are: Thanks for your order! We'll get it
packaged and shipped in the next 48 hours.
Smack-Dude - no hurry. Take as much time as you need.. Do what you gotta do... But, I gotta say that I am floored by your customer service! A++++!

Smackdaddy Update

Steve texted me and told me that he has posted an update on his site: Smack of The Month : BFSshop.com, is the official home of BFS Gear for Big Freakin Sails!

This is only to update everyone on what our friend is going through. I did not want to release it without him doing so first, or his approval.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Steve/Smack,

My words are insufficient to express the sympathy/affection we have for you. We're thinking of you & yours. If there was anything we can do, you need just ask.
