Is there a screening process in place in "Found Boats? now" Are things that bad?

I must have missed the fireworks show too. I did list a boat as "The Bayliner of D.E. World" the other day, but didn't bash it in any way. In fact, I implied it was a pretty good value. Not sure if this had anything to do with it or not, but the thread has been deleted. I hope it didn't start a free for all. But I know around here an Alura is not considered to be a "real" D.E. boat by many, although it shares quite a few features. Hence my title. It is what it is. But for $8k I thought it was actually a good deal for somebody.

From my perspective it seems like things are being well managed, considering how many people view and use this forum it is likely that there have been some issues but I think that the end result shows good judgement. My hats off to all involved, directly or indirectly and many thanks for asking our opinion on issues.

VERY well managed. Thank you!

Incredible info here and very few negative comments IMO. Looks at some of these other forums! Great work moderators.

Posts get moderated by all members because we had a cry baby threaten me with a lawyer because of comments made about his boat. Ironic thing was he was Captain of all bashers.. Funny how that works . I just don't want to deal with it.. Once again this is not directed at any one post or member this is just a way to make sure that I don't let things get out of hand

I despise cry babies. Especially on the internet of all places. I will keep this in mind Bill.

Wow; I thought this was a site populated by MEN. What a disgrace.

My Sunday morning coffee rant: Right about now I love Shakespeare. He was right. The lawyers of the world have continuously changed the way we live. Now a kid can't cut lawns to earn money for his first boat because Mommy will sue the homeowner if junior gets a grass stain on his new work pants. He can't shovel snow to earn money for his first boat because Daddy will sue the homeowner if junior gets snow down his boots and his feet get cold. He can't sell lemonaide to earn money for his first boat because of the FDA regulations, and even his sister can't help him by selling brownies because she doesn't have the proper zoning permits to run a bakery! Even if Junior was given money from Mommy and Daddy to buy his first 8' dream boat, he can't even legally drive it anymore because the laws have been changed, and he needs insurance coverage on top of it all. So why even bother working in the first place? WTF? Who is responsible for sending the message to Junior that violent video games and junk food in a dark bedroom are all there is in life? Someone should sue that bastard!

The other day at tht , a thread got started for a 15yo job suggestions.

I was going to burst the dream with a reality reply but didn't...Kids are suckers for working for nothing , they should wait till they are adults to do that sort of thing!
