You stated that you have a build slot, obviously you've put down your $10k to get in line. From my understanding, that deposit is non refundable.

Depending on the date of delivery of the Freeman, I will pay you the 10k for you build spot. It's a win win situation. You'll get your 10k back, I'll get a Freeman faster than I could have otherwise. This is a no brainer.

I would like to see a copy of the check that Freeman cashed (acct no. redacted) and a signed letter from you directed to Freeman Boatworks stating that you are in agreement with this. You can PM it and unlike the other people on here, I will not repost it.

Depending on when your time slot was, I will meet you somewhere in the Bahamas and buy you the drink of your choice. We will tip our hats at a successful business deal where 1) You are happy 2) I am happy 3) Freeman is happy 4) Invincible is happy.

By your previous posts, you don't believe in "selling" slots but this is different, you're merely trying to re coup your $10k and this is a perfect way to do so. SO, WHAT DO YOU SAY? DO WE HAVE A DEAL?
I have had two other PM's about my build slot, and I will go in that order. I am not looking to make money on the slot so I think that is only fair to offer in order of request. I will certainly meet you in the Bahamas and "allow" you to buy this ****-ass a drink if you allow me to buy you one also.

Also, I am not against the selling of build slots. What I was against was Scott lying about the fact that he allows it.

As to posting personal things, I learn my lesson when Rod27 posted a PM I sent to him, which showed how little character he has. But his actions also proved my point that he was asking how much I would pay for his spot, not that he would sell his spot.

I do plan on starting my build thread, but of course when my build actually begins.

As to negative comments about "riding by the shop", yes, I know boats have mechanical issues. Let me repeat, ALL BOATS HAVE MECHANICAL ISSUES. My concern is that Freemans have the same issues, repeatedly, which makes in more of a design defect that anything else.

I might have missed it but what boat do you have now?

You should really let it go Francis. I was just playing along with your game. No need to keep trying to insult me. As was said, Freeman doesn't know who you are, and they were puzzled by your comments. But now it's clear.....you have no deposit on a Freeman. Keep up the charade if you want.

Rod27, Who in the hell in Francis? I see you are not only sleazy, but a liar also. As to Freeman not knowing who I am, I love how you and Line X keep admitting Scott is talking to you all about me. Thanks very much.

Leroy, not sure it matters but there you go:

2 Pirogues (Canoes, for you Yankees)
Scully small CC
Older model Fountain 38
GatorTail Surface Drive
Way-Maker Mud Boat

Seriously dude, just get over it. Up to this point, we could tolerate your complaining but now it's just become annoying.

Although it's not about the invincible I have a question.

Someone said Freeman had an issue or didn't like running the trip outboard set-up. What was that problem there? Is that something we'll likely not see anymore in these larger cats? Either 2 or 4.

There's another boat co. that's motto was "Let the ride decide". Freeman will have it's groupies, Inv will have theirs. A smart buyer will ride them both on the same day. Each boat will have it's pro's and con's. I personally don't listen to people that are in bed with either, I make my own decision. A couple of years ago there was a race down here in Miami called the "Grove Slam". I would LOVE to have all the cats show up for a "CAT FIGHT". Have all the manufacturers show up with a boat with a T top and the same power...say Merc 350's, that way someone wouldn't show up with a stripped down hull with nothing more than a center console. Each OWNER of the company would have to run his own boat, NO professional drivers, just one owner vs another. Send your best boat. If you win, you win, if you lose, you lose. Comp, Prowler, Freeman, Inv, SH and any other boat mfg that wants to risk the fame vs embarrassment. Heck, I say do it before the Miami Boat show, that way all of them have their kinks worked out and there's no excuses. The video would be all over the web and they could use it to bring potential customers in. They wouldn't have the excuse "It's too expensive to go all the way to Miami to do it" when they're already here. What do you guys think?

I could have sworn we were talking about fishing boats. Apparently not. I guess they are all race boats now. Speed and sea keeping are not necessarily mutually inclusive. "Racing" these boats is silly to me and means mostly nothing in a fishing boat. But, to each his own.

No questions allowed on this thread

only bickering, adolescent he said she said, d!ck measuring, mines better than yours from people who may or may not know someone that knows someone at a high end boat manufacturer that happen to have 2 hulls.


in all seriousness, you all are smearing all the names of all the brands. embarrassing really

Inv's introduction didn't hurt the sales of YF even though it was "Two Steps Ahead". and SeaVee didn't hurt Inv with it's stepped hull. Face it, our economy is doing well and people have money to spend.
We can thanks President Trump for our economy doing well.

So wait a minute, does this mean that my offer to purchase your space in line is being rejected? With all the bad things you posted about Freeman, these other two people must be crazy, even crazier than me because they made the offer first. I feel like Bernie Sanders... always getting the shaft. I did put in a call to Scott, making sure that he'd allow the person on the list to have a name change and he said and he said that YOU DO NOT HAVE A SPOT IN LINE. Is/was your spot under a different name? I mean, if you don't have a spot, it really makes you look stupid. If you DO have a spot, then it makes SCOTT look like an idiot as he doesn't even know who's in line. I'm sure you got some kind of confirmation after you paid 10k. If you're looking to truly shame him, why not prove your side? Again, I'm ready with a certified check/wire transfer. BTW, when was your boat scheduled to go into the mold, the Freeman that is?
