I STARTED MY VENTURE ON EBAY, BUYING A BOAT ABOUT 300 MILES FROM HOME. I WAS COUNTING ON GETTING A SHIPPER, BUT IN EARLY MAY, I FOUND NOBODY. THEN I SEARCHED FOR THE ORIGINAL SHIPPER. THE ONE WHO TOOK IT TO TITUSVILLE,PA. HE DID NOT WANT TO GO TO THE NEW YORK METROPOLITAN AREA. HE WOULD GLADLY LET ME OFF IN NEW JERSEY OR THE CHESAPEAKE. I HAD ACCUMULATED 25 PLUS DAYS WAITING FOR A SHIPPER FROM USHIP, I LOOKED UP THE SHIPPERS IN MY AREA BUT NONE WANTED TO MAKE THE TRIP. I HAD ONE THAT WAS CHEAP A FIRST BUT HE CANCELED. THEN I GOT MATT. HE TOOK GAVE ME A BID I COULD NOT REFUSE. THEN I WAITED. I WAITED ONE MONTH AND TWO DAYS, BUT HE GOT MY BOAT HOME. THANKS MATT. EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE SLOWER THAN ALL GET UP. JOHN
