Most times from Mike's perspective he is just using that history to illustrate a point. Those who dismiss Mike as just a salesman are well uninformed about his background.

I often use Mike as a resource for contacts and background information. He can either pull the info from his head or his vast rolodex. When he has no direct knowlege, he can be counted on to make a few calls and resolve my question within a few hours.
Always happy to help and never asking for anything in return. Very much like he does for many people on THT.

If you were to inventory the two hundred most frequent participants in this forum, there are maybe ten of us from the industry who comment on issues pertaining to the sales, build, design, warranty and dealer service process. Everyone knows who we are. Mike is one of the most prominant, and consquently draws the most fire. Unfortunately we have to be the voices of reality on many occasions, and deal with the "experts" and the loudmouth rants with no basis in fact. In essence tell people what they don't want to hear. That by nature makes us the lightning rods for the rock throwing and pitch forks. So be it.

Mike will return. Mike will continue to contribute. Mike will always have his detractors.

As Chairman and CEO of the Free Mike C. movement I approve of this message.

You may think at first, OMG he has gone wayyyyyy off topic.
Not true. I was able to get all this done because Mike is not here and I was better able to manage my time today

As Chairman and CEO of the Free Mike C. movement I would like to make a comment on the work. That is fine work.

I enjoy Mike's posts. Whether you agree with what he has to say or how he goes about his business, he always steps up to offer help to owners esp if he has direct knowledge of the product through his personal experiences. I look forward to more of Mike's posts.

Mike C. is sitting by his computer and cannot log into THT and you think of yourself? For the love of Mike C. please we need to stay on topic here. Mike is well known for keeping threads on topic.

The LEDS are something I am testing and if I am happy with them, coming to my website in the near future. I will say this, they are BRIGHT!

The Peace River is flooded and today we took a ride way up the river much further than you usually can. At one point I was running along and noticed the tops of fence posts along side the boat. I was running along a cow fence!

Trimming the rub rail (bought through the good folks at GlenMar Marine)

a gentleman who's quite "full of himself",he believes everything is about him and can be solved by him and him alone - and i thought obama was bad - wow !
ol' mike carrigan,i'll bet people bought stuff from him,just so they could get away from him -the people probably walked away,ears bleeding from listening to his constant dribble...

Boy, you really hit the nail on the head. I've been reading his posts for a couple of years. I think he's getting worse with his rambling makes no sense miss spelled garbage. Who really cares what he thinks or how it was done in the old days. Or, what a great man I am (or was).

I think at his advanced age its the onset of senility, dementia or alzheimer's? Or maybe he's just drunk whenever he decides to post? He's really one sick puppy, to be avoided at all cost.

I had over 20 sales people working for me at one time. There was one like him. Always blowing his own horn at the sales meetings. Telling all the other salesmen how he was going to be number one next month and willing to bet them $100. Everybody felt sorry for him and ignored him. We need to do the same.

Many a jack ass thinks themselves to be a stag. Until it comes the time to jump the ditch.

How do you guys know when anyone has been banned?
If they are banned, then they can't post to let you know they are out for a while - so what's the source of info? Is there a banned list somewhere?
Is it okay to ask this sort of thing about being banned?

Mike C should come back and Charlie A. should only come back if he lets the Abruzzo girls post as well
