Default Bad business

Not in my nature to do this but want to warn members to stay clear of a vendor on here. Had advertised a sale on THT and when I called to order after lots of BS from him I was told it was a Veterans Day special and price is not good.Well let me see I said....Veterans Day was the 11th...this sale was posted on his site the 16th so was complete BS. After I told him I would report him and hung up I had to block him from calling me as he was blowing up my phone ...obviously he didn't want me to post my experience and I wasn't gonna but then figured why not...don't want others to get this type of BS. I will not respond to any replys...not looking to banter. ty

Good experience (s) here from Gil. Wouldn't hesitate to buy from him again.

He has been a wealth of knowledge for me. I've only bought three items from him over the years but he's answered unlimited questions and always went out of his way to help me out. I'm very surprised to hear this and would think there's more to this story.

Let me get this straight. You felt compelled to tell the world and warn the THT community about, in your mind, an unscrupulous vendor. But you didn’t actually name the vendor in your original post. Yeah we will take your post seriously...

Only fair to mention my experience with that vendor was excellent. I purchased all the electronics for my Sea Hunt from him a couple years ago.
Prices were very good, the transaction was smooth, and the items arrived when he said.
Unless something dramatically changed between then and now, I'd heartily recommend Semperfishing.

I have dealt with Gil from SemperFifishing many times with no issues and will continue to do business with him in the future as well as recommend him to others.

There is ALWAYS 2 sides to a story and somewhere in between is the truth.......

I thought you were not going to respond to replies? If you lie about this....you are probably lying about your bad experience.

I purchased a Garmin radar from Gil. He went out of his way to educate me and help me thru the entire purchase.
He had already given me the lowest price that I expected and then because it was the last Radar that Garmin made, in
that model, her reduced the price again. He didn't have to do that.
He also called me after I received the radar to make sure that it arrived safely and asked if I had any questions.
I would also highly recommend Gil!

I have nothing but good things to say about Gil. His prices are great and the technical assistance he provides is priceless. Can't imagine anyone having a problem with him.

I posted about my "less than positive" experience last year with him. The post got deleted by "someone" other than me.

This is The Hull TRUTH! Positive and negative experiences by members regarding their dealings with vendors (any vendors) should be allowed..........and encouraged!

If you do a search for SEMPERFIFISH in the upper right one will fine about 1,500 postings.
