I'm somewhat curious, Who is the sponsor for the electronics thread? Has been BOE for as long as I have been on this site and now? Poof no longer a sponsor? I find that rather hmmm ODD ? Maybe the site ?

The "higher ups" (whoever that is) decided they would not renew our advertising contract. Not because of behavior or anything. Simply because we have another boating website. We have had other boating websites for the last ten years. In other words, more BS.

I really wish I knew why iBob has a hard on for us but it has been explained to others that have inquired that they are not going to engage us publicly. And unfortunately they won't tell us privately. Life goes on. So if you like Chesapeake Bay Fishing, Sea Rays, or Group Buys and direct interaction with us commercially I guess you'll have to visit one of our other sites.

The mgmt of THT used to appreciate it's vendors but those days are long gone.

Interesting to say the least and there are always two sides to every story. I wouldn't expect the powers to engage in an open forum anyway no matter if it was with you nor anyone else. No place to air the laundry so to speak and judging by your "in other words, more BS" comment, the laundry basket is rather full.

You're right, life goes on here at THT and always will. I as well as countless other members and vendors alike are surely very proud to have the good fortune to be associated with The Hull Truth, truly the premiere boating site on the web. Surely you'd have to agree with since you've invested your advertising dollars here for many years which tells me you have earned a very tidy profit from advertising here which by the way is a great privilege. Actually Jim, IMHO.....the management does appreciate their vendors.

Back to our regularly scheduled programming.

I found out this week that if you even question one of the companies on here about why delivery of an order takes way longer than stated, without any way of tracking it, that your thread will vanish faster than a speeding bullet.
