  • Oops of the week

    Well guys, I got the oops of thr week award today. I went down to one of the marinas yesterday to remove a boot stripe on a 26 Regulator. After spending 3 hrs getting it off I called my customer to ask him where the new stripe was. My customer sounded a little perplexed and told me " Gary thats not my boat" OOPS! I called the owner of the Regulator and told him he got a free new boot stripe for christmas. Stupid mistake but good for a laugh. Needless to say I put the right stripe on the right boat, a 35 Marlago.

    Oops! Not quite as bad as pulling the wrong tooth (which I've never done)... But I have gotten the wrong side numb once before.

    Hope the Regulator owner was understanding.

      Gary... My neighbor wants his boat waxed and detailed. He has the Dark Blue Mako 250 hull with 'Rude Attitude on it. Says he'll pay you tomorrow.... [88]

      When I bought my new trailer, the dealer I bought it from was closed, but he said "I'll leave it outside with my boat on it. Just launch the boat and leave it in slip 22". I proceeded to the dealer a little later than expected, grabbed the boat/trailer out front, launched the boat and left it in slip 22. 2 days later after getting back from Venice, the guy calls me and asks if I still wanted the trailer (??). Seems someone had left their boat there for servicing and I'd left it in slip 22 !! Police understood and no charges were filed. []
