4 or 5 weeks ago my generator was bounced off the 150qt ice chest on
the deck of the my boat. No need to tell me it didn't belong there,
I've learned my lesson!

Anyway, I'd taken it to where I'd originally purchased it for $350.00 4 years ago.
They quoted me $500.00+ to fix it.
Needless to say I declined their offer aka FY! :eek:

I got the generator back and was contemplating purchasing a new one.
Ziff/Arnold, who I met on ALLCOAST 3 years ago, and I were doing the
Starbucks thing after he fixed a few things at my Mother-In-Laws
house and he said, "why don't you let me look at it?" SURE I said!

Not only did he call me 2 hours after he'd started looking at it,
he was also calling me to tell me it was fixed. WTF! Are you kidding me?

My point . . .
I've met a lot of good people here, an awful lot of them indeed.
Arnold is just another great example.
HE did get my last piece of Broiled Dorado the other night though.
Around me, getting the last piece of fish rarely happens.

He and I have been hooping a considerable amount over these 3 years also. :7
Friendships can be a great thing sometimes.

Thank You Arnold, you just saved me 500 dollars . . maybe more had I purchased a new one!!!

I certainly owe you more than one! :)

Parker 2320 'FloMar'.

p.s. It turns out the guy giving me the estimate to fix it never took the cover off. Per Arnold, "rust came off when I turned the screws."
So not only did the guy try and sell me 2 NEW parts (alternator & carburator)
and labor that I didn't need, but they wouldn't have fixed it anyway.
The guy could barely speak and understand english.
x( I have ZERO tolerance for people like this, absolutely ZERO! x(

That Arnold Ziffel!

He is one of those guys you can count on! Glad you were around Arnold, to relieve some stress off the old-fisherman gen! Made his light bulb go on again....
