Hello Rob, Matt(kidken) here. I am back in Cedar Creek now. I have placed a new bid for your boat move. Do you still need it moved? Thanks MattReport a Violation
Response: Matt, We are still looking to ship the boat in the very near future; however, I am having to watch the weather as the boat has been winterized for Texas and not Michigan. In addition, I am also requesting to see if you could shrink wrap the boat as well prior to shipping?? I have a cover but would feel more comfortable with shrink wrap. Rob4/30/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hey Rob, glad to hear from you. No I can't do shrink wrap. I could check around Austin or Bastrop and see what it would cost to have done. I think that would by over kill if the cover is in good condition. I know what you mean about the weather, I was in MI for Easter and it was in the40's. Snow should be done by the time the boat arrives up there for this year. Thanks Matt4/30/2014Report a Violation

Hey Rob, I just looked at the map on your listing and the pickup location is about 2 miles from my home. The wife delivers mail on Mesquite. Just thought that was kind of funny. Report a Violation
Response: Matt, If you would please check on adding the option to shrink wrap that would be appreciated. Not sure if you have consider this but since you are so close, my boat sits on our property and is visible from the road. That may give you an idea of the actual boat in lieu of pictures. The pictures are good but reality is always better. Rob5/1/2014Report a Violation
Response: I'll check on the rap today and my run by and look at the boat. I have to go to the farm and spray my hay fields anyway. Matt5/1/2014Report a Violation
Question:
5/1/2014
Hello Rob. I checked a couple places in Austin and it would be $17-$19 a foot (350-400) to shrink-wrap your boat. Seems like a lot of money for something you will trash after one use. Thanks Matt Report a Violation
Response: In regards to shrink wrap, I am leaning towards your recommendation of no wrapping due to it just being trash. I am only concerned in that the cover I purchased is designed for road travel but I have never felt comfortable leaving it on while towing (My longest tow was from Corpus to Cedar Creek). Call me crazy. I currently have the cover on the boat with brand new bunge cords as I did not like what the manufacturer provided as they never stayed as tight as I liked. What speeds do you normally travel at when towing a boat?? FYI - I have rachet straps on the stern of the boat for towing. In summary, I was just looking for any concerns that I may need to be aware of so that there are no repairs to make due to the tow from Texas to Michigan. 5/3/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hi Rob, Thanks for the reply. As far as the cover goes I just towed a Skeeter to WI the week I went for Easter to MI and had no problems with the cover. I can put on more straps if you think you need them. The tag is no problem as I will have a bill of lading for transport. My plan would be pickup on the 9th get to MI the 11th spend the night a my sisters and come on north the 12th. Thanks Matt PS I run about 65mph when towing.5/3/2014Report a Violation
Question:
5/2/2014
Hello Rob. I have placed a new bid ($178 off the other one). If your are going to accept I'd like to head up to MI by Sat the 10th. Let me know and we can get it done. Thanks. MattReport a Violation
Response: Hi Matt! I appreciate the reduction in the price as this is closer to the previous time we posted the boat. We are extremely serious and like the timing you noted. We only have one potential wrinkle which is I have not received my new registration tags for the trailer but I have the new ones for the boat. Basically, the trailer registration expired in April 2014 and I renewed online. The renewal has been approved and I have an email from TxDOT explaining this but am waiting for the tags to arrive in the mail. If the tags are not available by 10 May would you still move the boat??? I can provide the approval email from TxDOT. We are expecting to recieve them early this week as I spoke with the Post Office in Texas. Once received I can provide a copy of registration via email or FEDEX overnight to Cedar Creek. Look forward to your response.5/3/2014Report a Violation
Response: Hey Rob, the wife and I went down Mesquite and could not see the right boat. We saw one at 303 and another around that area. Just saying I did try to get a look at the cover. As I said I have had no trouble with them before. Thanks Matt5/3/2014Report a Violation
Response: The boat is at 107 south eskew so you may have been on the wrong street. Basically, at Simpson and Eskew.5/3/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ah ha I was. Guess it really does not matter. If you would like to accept the bid I can cancel my other outstanding bids and we will get phone numbers for contacting. 5/3/2014Report a Violation
Response: Good morning Matt, We will be making our decision today which will be positive. We would prefer to stay to your original plan of 9 May with arrival in Gaylord on 12 May. Thanks Rob5/4/2014Report a Violation
Response: Rob the cover looks good. I'd say a couple more straps and it would make the trip just fine. Matt5/3/2014Report a Violation
Response: Thanks Rob, anytime your ready just accept and I'll get your contact number. I'll give you a call asap. Matt5/4/2014Report a Violation
Question:
5/3/2014
Rob one last thing I can leave as early as Monday the 5th but not after the 10th. My trailer is repaired at the factory in White Pigeon , MI and after the 14th they want to charge storage. I will be going by the 10th and if not your boat then I'll find something else. Thanks Matt Report a Violation
