I am a former employee of a popular snorkel and dive company in Key West, FL. I now manage another popular dive company. A couple years ago, a man named Robert Krutko and his wife, Laura purchased a catamaran dive boat named Sundance (AKA Reef Cat). The vessel was an older model with older engines, and in need of updates and repair. The vessel was moored at Ocean Key House in Key West Harbor. While moored there, the Krutko's paid a monthly dock fee, along with hiring an on-site mechanic to work on the vessel.

Robert and Laura purchased a canal home on Cudjoe Key.

In late 2005, Hurricane Wilma devastated the Florida Keys and caused extensive damage to the Key West Harbor waterfront. The docks at Ocean Key House were heavily damaged.

For several months, the Krutkos failed to pay their dock fee and failed to pay the mechanic for services rendered. Furthermore, they failed to obtain a current registration for the vessel. Essentially, the Krutkos abandoned the vessel at the dock. Ocena Key House obtained a Mechanics LIEN on the vessel.

In early 2006, a friend of the Krutkos took the vessel from the Ocean Key House and transported it to Cudjoe Key. The man failed to notify the hotel that he was taking the vessel. So as you can imagine, it looks as though the vessel was being taken in order to skip out on past due rent and service fees.

Since the vessel did not fit in the canal at the Krutkos' home in Cudjoe Key, it was anchored (very poorly) in Cudjoe Bay. The water in Cudjoe Bay is shallow and not conducive to anchoring due to a hard, flat sea bed. Cudjoe Key residents complained about the vessel due to it's poor mooring and lack of an anchor light at night. The vessel was a navigational hazard. The first mild wind that came along, the vessel started dragging anchor toward the shoreline. FWC (waterborne state law enforcement) responded, along with Sea-Tow. When FWC ran the vessel's HIN, the LIEN from Ocean Key House was found. They notified the hotel to retrieve the vessel, which they did.

A short time thereafter, the Krutkos filed a theft report with the local Sheriff's Office, claiming the hotel stole the vessel. Officers investigating the reported theft learned of the prior mentioned activities and confirmed the vessel was moored at the hotel in Key West. The Officers concluded the matter was not criminal theft, but a civil matter between the two parties.

Unhappy with the Officers' findings, Robert Krutko called the State's Attorney's Office in Key West. Local prosecutors reviewed the matter and also concluded it was a civil problem, not criminal. The same conclusion was also made by FWC.

The Ocean Key House has filed a lawsuit against Krutko in reference to the vessel and monies owed.

Since this incident, Krutko has launched a personal crusade against Monroe County, Key West, and numerous local businesses. On this website (Rip-off Reports) alone, he has filed at least 10 complaints. Do a search of "Key West" or "Monroe County" and look for the author being from Columbus, OH. His rants, foul language, and otherwise immature behavior has gotten him banned from several other websites.

Speaking of other websites (and this one too), major details of the story change each time he tells it. For example, the boat's value is different every time.

He is notorious for filing complaints, then returning under a different screen name to answer himself. In fact, he has done that on this website. When other people ask him tough questions, he responds calling the questioner an idiot or d*mb*ss. He will not answer your questions. That alone raises a flag.

He will make claims that he has spoken to "high ranking" or "senior" people in different law enforcement agencies, government offices, boat dealers, etc. In his claims, he states the "high ranking" persons have gone "on record" to say the matter is a theft. Well, here's what he really does. Krutko will make a phone call and refuse to correctly identify himself. He will ask a question similar to "If someone takes your boat without your permission, is that considered theft?" Of course, the answer is always "yes." But he fails to give the true details of what happened. When the persons start asking him questions, he refuses to answer, or hangs up. I know this because I was one of those persons.

Krutko claims to be suing the Ocean Key House. Not true. It's the other way around.

As of this date, no attorney has agreed to take his case.

Krutko's house in Cudjoe Key is under foreclosure due to the fact he also failed to pay his mortgage there.

Krutko is a liar, a thief, and a fraud. And now that his finances have gone downhill, he is desperate. Avoid this man and his business endeavors at all costs because he will manipulate you and lie to you. He is vindictive. If you cross him, he will find a way to "get even." He is not to be trusted in any way.

Search "Robert Krutko" on a website called(((REDACTED))) This site seems to deny the link. Regardless, this idiot has been incriminating enough toward his own character and reliability, but there's so much more out there for all of your entertainment.

You know, Robert, you should be thanking hard working folks like myself, my family and and my crew members. Don't worry... We're not holding our breath.

Robert Krutko still the same... Liar, cyber bully and extortionist

AUTHOR: Krutko victim 99857 - ()

Thought I might re-up this forum, as Krutko has chosen me as his latest victim. People need to know he is a cyber bully and extortionist. He floods forums and reviews sites (ironically, this is one of his favorites) with lies and slander. He is very litigious and is still hopefull for a lawsuit payoff. He's a sad pathetic man and it's unfortunate. Worse than that, he feels the need to defame families, small businesses, and public service men and women To try to extort his money. Pathetic. Don't ever give in to a bully...

Please refer to Report Report #0238480 which can be found here:

http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/238/RipOff0238480.htm

""During this lawsuit i will be able to prove john evans of hydro thunder performance watersports not only lied to several individuals including state police officer but was involned in trying to cover it up. when court transcripts are available i will then prove my facts.""

The case was concluded MONTHS ago; YOU LOST. The court documents have been available for months so why haven't you used these documents to prove your allegations as you stated you would above?

Why don't you explain why the attorney for RSA Inc. (Reef Snorkeling Adventures Inc., Laura Krutko, President) withdrew from the case?

Why don't you explain why the judge WARNED you about your "highly suspicious" evidentiary documents when you moved for dismissal and release of the vessel? You know, your ridiculous claim that a "newly discovered" document that proved RSA Inc was dissolved on Aug 30 2005, but wasn't FILED until Oct 2007 on the same day you filed your motion to dismiss? The reality is the document states a dissolution approval date and the form is signed (but not dated) by Laura Krutko, but the EFFECTIVE DATE was left blank. Go ahead. Take all the time you need to explain this one.

When are you going to make these court documents available to Mr. McCarthy so he can read for himself what really transpired during the lawsuit against you? Don't' forget to include the evidentiary documents filed by the plaintiff that include the investigative reports and statements from the folks who were on the scene when the vessel was adrift.

When are you going to provide Mr. McCarthy a copy of the judge's order that denied your motion to dismiss so that he can read for himself what you attempted to do and the judge's STATEMENTS as to WHY your evidentiary documents were "HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS?" and he denied your motion?

Perhaps if Mr. McCarthy would READ these documents, he might develop a more accurate opinion of the type of people he's dealing with (you and your wife) and re-assess his relationship with you.

When are you going to update the Secretary of the Gulf Coast Mariners Association with the FACTS of your case (as filed with the court), including the WARNING to you that the Judge stated, so he can write a follow-up article to the one he printed in their newsletter in March 2007?

When are you going to retract the lie you posted about me on RipOff Report?

Memory refresher for Krutko.

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

I guess Robert 'The Liar' Krutko needs his memory refreshed. Here's a reminder of when he LIED and posted on RipOff Report that I worked for United Yachts:

I'm convinced.

You have now convinced me that you're a liar.

I've been self-employed since I stopped working for a major autoparts supplier. I don't know you or Schmidt, but from the blatherings I've read here from BOTH of you, I wouldn't wish to business with either of you.

I initially responded to one of your post last year. I was curious as to how a boat could be arrested.

Here's the rebuttal I posted last July to your report:

http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/257/RipOff0257482.htm - 243740''

UNQUOTE

As anyone can see Robert, you're a proven liar.

Anyone who would like to learn what this knucklehead, Robert from Ohio, has been doing, just read these 2 ripoff reports and decide for yourself:

http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/257/RipOff0257482.htm
http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/312/RipOff0312362.htm

If you'd like to learn about his losing civil suits and foreclosures, just check with the Martin and Monroe County (Florida) Clerk of the Court websites and search for KRUTKO to learn about his failures.

To see the court actions for the lawsuit Peter Schmidt brought against Robert because of his internet postings, go to the Martin County Clerk of the Court website, https://www2.myfloridacounty.com/ccm/?county=43 and search the civil records for KRUTKO.

To see the court actions for the foreclosure, go to the Monroe County Clerk of the
Court website, http://www.clerk-of-the-court.com/ and search the civil records for KRUTKO.

More information about this businessman can be found at the Ohio Secretary of State website, http://www.sos.state.oh.us/SOS/businessServices.aspx . Again, just search for KRUTKO and learn about Special K Investments, Mr. Hotdog, and Mr. Powerwash.

My advice to folks is to ignore Robert's internet ramblings unless you're being defamed by him. If that's the case, follow Peter Schmidt's lead and SUE HIM!

Now Robert, do let me know when you're going to RETRACT the lie you posted about me.

There is so many claims that everyone is someone else to Robert. That everyone new to this is just someone changing their screen name.

Before Robert tries and pull the same thing with my screen name. Let me stop him in his tracks.

I don't live in the Keys, I don't know any of these people or the people you have been pointing fingers at.

Robert you truly need to start pulling everything down, that you have put up before you get to court, if you do they just might go easier on you. JUST MIGHT

I have not been very impressed and the more posting I read of yours, I'm amazed you are not in prison as of yet. You don't seem to have any friends on here, so let me give you a little real advice.

it is better to make a good retreat, then a poor stand.

Roberts rants have turned criminal

AUTHOR: Michael - (U.S.A.)

Patrick, you and me both buddy!

On podbean, Robert posted several recorded telephone conversations with cops in Florida. What Robert failed to research, was Florida statute 934, which identifies Florida as a 2-party state with regards to recorded telephone conversations. Each event is a First Degree Misdemeanor, carrying up to 1 year in jail each.

I just spent some time on the phone contacting the agencies and officers identified in those recordings. Let's just say...none were very happy The recordings were downloaded and warrants are being pursued.

On a side note, there has got to be a mental issue here. We called him out on his aliases a long time ago. Yet he keeps doing it. Who does he think he is fooling? Oh well.

New information on Robert

AUTHOR: Patrick - (U.S.A.)

This report deserves a bump as new information has come to light. Mike's last post said that United Yacht filed a suit against Robert. After several months of dodging the process server, Peter finally hired a PI and tracked Robert down. Robert was served on 4/30/08 and had 20 days to respond. I'm assuming that since he's still on his internet rampage, that he has not answered and is hiding from the law. I hope this proves enough to have a warrant issued for his arrest.

Lately, Robert has increased his attacks on various organizations. Anyone that can be tied in any way to this issue is coming under Robert's wrath. And I've finally had enough. As of today, I have contacted the following individuals:

Dee Dee Holley at the Florida DHSMV, and let her know Robert is still saying that she is 'on the record' saying this was theft.

Karen Taylor at the Lee County Tax Collectors office, letting her know that Robert did the same thing with her email as he did with Dee Dee's.

Chuck Collins, Director of the FWC South Region, and let him know about the report about two of his officers.

It is now my mission in life to see Robert's ridiculous rants end. I predict by the end of 2008 Robert will have to post retractions to all 35 (and counting) of his reports on this site, take down all websites he's created, and delete his posts on all the topic boards like Topix and Destin Sharks.

Oh, and interestingly enough, I just responded to another of Robert's reports. The last poster from yesterday was 'Linda Ray'. Funny, in one of Mike's rebuttals above, he said one of the many aliases was Linda Ray. Now isn't that something.

Krutko hides from the law!

AUTHOR: Michael - (U.S.A.)

I just learned that on Feb 11, Peter Schmidt of United Yacht Sales in Stuart, FL filed a civil lawsuit on Robert Krutko for his endless slander and libel. Finally, the day of reckoning is coming for Krutko.

However, Krutko knows of the lawsuit and is hiding from the Civil Process server. On one occassion, he lied and said he was not Robert.

Krutko continues to slander multiple companies on a daily basis on several websites. The time has come for him to put his money where his mouth is. But for now, he is in hiding, behind the safety of his keyboard.

If his claims were true, you'd think he would welcome a day in court.

I happened upon this report by accident looking for another boating service, and just have to say you're bickering like teenagers. I understand that someone has discredited someone else. In my opinion (which I know doesn't matter) Michael you're first report was very straight and to the point, you would have been better to have just let him make his comments and ignore them. Then it would look like you weren't childish enough to play his games. And as for Robert...it sounds like you just need to get a grip, not everyone is out to get you. And "copying" emails? Anyone can say they copied what they had and just type in what they want. It's easy to lie on the internet, but it seems you've figured that out. I would say both of you just drop it let the courts decide and go your seperate ways.

Robert obviously has issues... .with pathological lieing.

AUTHOR: Michael - (U.S.A.)

Actually, Paul Meyers is exactly the person to talk to. Anyone can call him at the Key West State's Attorney's Office at three zero five, two nine two, three four zero zero.

I invite anyone who might actually care to give the Chief Investigator a call. He will be more than happy to confirm that the complaint was never forwarded to them, and that DBPR's findings are not what Robert is reporting.

Here's why. Attorneys in Florida are NOT required to have an Auctioneer's License. That is the law. Therefore, Ekstein committed no crime. Therefore, Robert is once again proven to be a liar.

This whole case was ruled to be civil by three law enforcement agencies and the prosecutors office over a year ago. Robert was told to hire a lawyer and file a civil suit. But he's too cheap and keeps trying to take the free road, which doesn't exist. Robert is exactly in the same position now as he was over a year ago. He'll never learn.

Old Michael has went to great lengths to TRY and discredit my story. Problem is the simple moron looks dumber and dumber each time because he is a liar. Below is a copy of part of the e mail i recieved from the State Attorney office directly from the investigator from this case. As you will see he clearly states after recieving some paperwork he's waiting on from the DBPR, the file goes to the prosecutor. This michael is a liar which should lead everyone to believe he's either a crook or friends of the crooks ive exposed. Either way hes a liar ive proven that and he still tries to lie and discredit me.



I am awaiting a document from DBPR's legal counsel. When that document arrives, I will forward your file to a Prosecutor for review.

A Whole New Lie

AUTHOR: Michael - (U.S.A.)

Robert's latest ill-planned fib was to lie about a Florida DBPR investigation.

Robert called DBPR and filed a complaint on Alan Eckstein, a Key West attorney. Now, he is claiming that DBPR found Eckstein to have committed a Felony crime and the report was forwarded to the Key West State's Attorney's Office for prosecution.

The only truth in that, is that Robert did file a complaint. However, DBPR found no criminal activity in Eckstein and dropped the investigation. The case was never forwarded to the SAO as Robert reported. This was confirmed by me in a two-mintue telephone call to the SAO.

His case has come to a close and he LOST. The Federal Court sided with Ocean Key House and agreed there was no Theft of Robert's boat.

Due to how much money Robert owed the Ocean Key House, it was completely legal for them to hold the boat as collateral.

The Federal Court has ruled, and Robert Lost.

State of Florida says United Yacht Sales did absolutely nothing wrong, unethical or illegal in regards to claims made by Robert Krutko

I have remained quiet for a good while, simply waiting for the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation to report on the allegations made by Robert Krutko. Robert has accused me of lying and of deceitful and illegal business practices and in general slandering United Yacht Sales, my brokers and myself.

We received the report today. The State has given everyone involved with United Yacht Sales a total clean bill of health. We did nothing wrong, either ethically or legally. The report is quite lengthy but to sum it up there is no evidence to substantiate a violation The full report is available from the DPBR, case # 2007 03 8311 or you may contact me directly at [email protected] Any brokers that sided with Robert in this blogging, you really should read the report and get the facts straight.

Robert has been relentless, attacking everyone involved in this incident. He has told half- truths, twisted time-lines, pretended to people he isn't to further his attacks, accused totally innocent people of terrible things. I never once lied, as he accuses me. It took me a coupe of days to get all the facts straight and I admitted to a misunderstanding of weather the boat was re-arrested or simply remained under arrest and if his court case was settled or not. This misunderstanding has no bearing on Robert's situation, in any case.

Folks, Robert caused his own problems and refuses to deal with them in a civilized manor. I feel sorry for the people he has slandered and have no way to defend themselves except through a blog where lying and slandering is acceptable. The Internet has really become a dangerous place!

For anyone who reads this and can't see what kind of a person Robert is, please search Robert Krutko. It's a real eye-opener. It's a shame the Internet has come to this! In the mean time, we at United are happy to hear from anyone regarding this incident or in helping you in the sale or purchase of a boat.

In the mean time, we at United are happy to hear from anyone regarding this incident or in helping you in the sale or purchase of a boat.

State of Florida confirms ocean key resort / John Evans taking of yacht was clearly theft

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

Not only was it theft John Evans of hydrothunder watersports key west lied to state police telling them he owned yacht. Some people online here want you to believe there was back rent owed and the boat was a navigational hazzard. Not true it was up against a cudjoe key residents dock out of the way. As part of there false storys they forgot to mention many things. the hotels attorney after auctioning off yacht told buyer to keep boat hidden until he got transfer paperwork through to his name due to the fact the owners were looking for their vessel. (sounds like everything there was legal)

Oh yes and if it was all legal, why has two state officials come on record verifying it was theft? we also have 12 police officers throughout florida including monroe county sheriff deputys/detectives clearly said it was theft/grand theft. ( i will be uploading there conversations soon) oh yes and people want you to believe recording conversation were illegal, seeing im in ohio making the calls ohio laws say one person must have knowledge the calls are recorded and that was me. oh yes several other state police are on recording saying it was theft along with other state officials /attorneys.

All these people say "theft" and grand theft but local sheriffs refuse to even investigate why? doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure that one out.. Besides police/state officials/attorneys and even the fwc head attorney who made some interesting but false statements. I will be posting the fwc reports where evans told them two seperate ownership storys along with other wittness statements. you will soon see/hear all the facts i promise you. Please see letters below that the state confirms theft.

State confirms the taking of yacht by ocean key resort/john evans is theft

As ive said all along the state has said the taking of yacht under the state statute was theft. below is a copy of this letter. as far as saying a marina of course i did if i didnt you know d**n well you all would have said he gave his side only. doesnt matter how you slice it moron its theft. lets see what part of theft doesnt he understand?

As of today two state personell on record saying grand theft

Subject: as per our conversation statute 328.17

Hi DeeDee I spoke to you earlier about the state statute 328.17. I couldnt remember if i gave you my e mail address or not. (((ROR removed because of security purposes)))

As per our conversation it is my understanding as a marina if you try and use the statute 328.17 you must hold and be in possession at all times. If the boat you are claiming owes you money leaves for any reason you cannot claim the statute and do a non judicial sale correct? At that point as a marina

I would have a civil matter claiming back rent owed? And as you mentioned if the vessel leaves for any reason we as a marina would not be able to go get it and bring it back to our possession under the statute because that would be theft correct? So to sum it up as a marina I would need to hold vessel there to claim statute then follow guidelines to do a non judicial sale? if not we cannot go get yacht then bring it back and sell it under the statute. Thanks again and please let me know if the above is a correct assessment of the law.
Robert
p.s

i almost forgot would we be able to go take yacht and bring back to our possession if we notify him first by mail(before boat leaves marina) we are claiming the statute 328.17 then he leaves after getting notice?


Answer


You are correct in all that you stated. I apologize for not emailing you yesterday like I said that I would. The only thing is the P.S. is incorrect. If the boat leaves your possession for any reason, that then becomes a civil matter and you would have to get a court to say that you can go get the vessel. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

as ive said all along morons THEFT-THEFT-THEFT i guess its hard to swallow seeing its theft. you tried to discredit my storys from the get go but the state disagrees. you look even stupider trying to discredit the state who clearly confirms THEFT. Wow thats got to suck having the state say its theft which everyone already knew. as far as marina it doesnt matter how or what side you explain it from, THEFT is still spelled the same. And you tried spending all this time saying i was a liar and nobody thinks its theft. well the agency that is in charge of certifying the non judicial sale says yes. Did i mention they said it was theft?

hahahaha you cant say i didnt tell ya so. but thats ok i have many police officers, state officials on record saying theft also and that will be uploaded on the internet soon for everyone to hear.

I mean lets face it
ocean key resort and john evans take yacht=THEFT
evans lied to police while doing so=INTENT
Resort lied to buyer at auction=FRAUD
people trying to cover up what was done and discredit my storys=DUM*&*&

Subject: boat possessiary lien 328.17

Hello Karen,

I spoke to you on the phone several minutes ago and wanted to make sure I had the facts straight so I can forward this to my buddy in Florida. Under statute 328.17 if we did not have a written lease with a boat owner we COULD NOT use this statute to do a non judicial sale of vessel correct? also if the boat leaves the marina for any reason and doesn't return we as i understand CANNOT go get it and bring it back to our possession correct? and as you said even if we had possession the whole time still without a lease we could not do a non judicial sale under statute 328.17 correct?

Thanks
Robert


p.s
its my understanding if the boat left WE CANNOT go take it and bring it back to our possession or we commit theft by doing so correct?

Dear Robert:

Your interpretation of the Florida Statue is correct in all aspects.

Especially, since you did not have a written contract with the owner of boat.

If we can be of further assistance, please contact our office.

Sincerely,

WOW CONFIRMATION ITS ILLEGAL FOR NON JUDICIAL SALE AND TO GO TAKE IT=

ILLEGAL POSSESSION=THEFT + LYING TO POLICE=INTENT=MAKING FALES STATEMENTS TO POLICE OFFICIALS= serious trouble

Thank you everyone for your time. i will be uploading recorded information soon with more proof. this will be done after several other investigations are done and on the record.

I just want to add to the point I made about Robert responding to himself under different screen names.

On a website called destinsharks, Robert told his load of crap under the screen name Floridaguy. Later, he created a new screen name, boat4ever, and responded to himself. Unfortunately for him, he forgot which name was which and responded to himself without switching the names. Needless to say, he made a horse's behind of himself over there.

He makes it so easy for simple folks to see right through him.

Robert Krutko has no morals. This is unbelievable!

AUTHOR: Michael - (U.S.A.)

The following is a quote by Robert Krutko on another chat forum. This is absolutely PATHETIC! I always knew this man was a LIAR, but this goes way too far. Read this. I'll comment at the end.

"A friend of mine name capt Al in south florida needs everyone help urgently. Capt. al a two time purple heart recipient (and doesnt like to discuss) has become a victim of discrimination. As a captain in the florida keys for many years al has worked hard to enjoy whats left of his life fishing. recently a marina in south florida after the hurricanes left him sitting for months promising him he would return while telling all the other tennants he wasnt. al while sitting out on the hook (anchor) for months with no water,electric or anything trying to survive. after months his pocket book ran out and business was gone while still waiting to return to the marina he had been at for years. After months went by he recieved a notice they didnt want him back with no explinations attached. He was even paid up on his rent and they had to refund some of it back. after the 30 day notice was given two days later he returned to claim his stuff (storage boxes-equipment) and it was all gone($8000 worth of equipment).

we recently found out the state of florida holds the lease with the marina and were asking everyone to please help write the state and tell them nobody should be discriminated against especially on state lands. We feel the state should immediately pull this marinas lease for this reason. The marina was also involved in the theft of another mans yacht at this same location where the boat was later torched and yes the state still allows them a lease . please help our writing campaign to let the state know discrimination and illegal acts should not be allowed and ocean key resort marina should have their lease pulled. the name below is the person in charge of state lands leases please e mail him direct.

i would appreciate any help this veteran can get..

thanks

ps.
i have recently found out capt Al is sick and time is of the essence. Your help is greatly appreciated.

---------------

First and foremost, I have to point out the e-mail address Robert lists to contact "Al." Wheezy9870 is Robert Krutko's home e-mail in Columbus, OH, not anyone named Al in Key West.

But aside from his little e-mail blunder, this whole story is completely made up! I live in Key West , work on the water, and know the ins and outs of every waterfront hotel in Key West Harbor. I've NEVER heard of this "Capt Al." This whole story is completely made up in an attempt to make a hotel look bad that Robert has a beef with. Robert wants to see the Ocean Key House out of business because he is currently the subject of a lawsuit from them. Besides, the story doesn't even make sense!

DO NOT FALL FOR THIS MAN'S LIES!!! He's got alternate motives and he is looking to con people!

Complaint Substantiated

AUTHOR: William - (U.S.A.)

I tried to give the subject of this report the benefit of the doubt on another thread started by him. He has refused to answer every question I asked him. Instead, he responded calling me and others unprevoked childish names. I don't know how someone can start a complaint and refuse to answer questions by concerned readers. This thread has hit the nail right on the head about Robert. He will only tell a story to a certain point that is convenient for him. But ask him to clarify something, and the temper shows. Also, I was glad to see the author point out that Robert responds to himself under different screen names. I too have noticed that.

As far as I'm concerned, the author has written a well substantiated report that has been proven in Robert's responses.

Another liar covering his *ss

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

This mike has a great fictional story. He failed to mention as i have posted above in a news paper article there was another victim. If you read the story mc carty clearly says the hotel and attorney lied. He also states after the people who illegally took the boat that sold it to him were confronted on their illegal taking and selling of yacht they refunded his money quickly. Now everyone knows if they were right in what they did why refund the money? They were so scared they knew what they did was illegal. Then after refunding the mans money hes still out 20k for repairs he did plus expenses which they stiffed him on. But yes mike wants you to believe this great story he has made up. Oh and for anyone wanting to see it i have the FWC police officers report mike mentioned above that shows the person they sent to get boat (john evans of hydro thunder watersports-thief) gave the officer a false statement telling the officer he was the owner and had the yacht sold on payments and the person who failed on these payment he believed took the yacht. Two months later the supervisor of this officer investigating says i spoke to evans who said they filed a stolen boat report with the key west police department. she then goes on to say i checked with the kwpd and there was no report filed. (another lie) now if someone makes up a story rent was owed (no written contract what so ever) why lie to everyone why not just say were here to get the yacht this guy owes us money? the answer is simple and clear ,what they were doing was illegal and they knew it.

Robert Krutko (AKA Chris on this thread...I'm sure there will be more AKAs to come) is still hung up on the Gatchell issue, which has nothing to do with this......

As for the newspaper article by Dennis Cooper.......that was published in a paper better known by locals to be a tabloid. And in true Dennis Cooper fashion, it only published the opinions of one side. Key West The Newspaper is not the paper of Key West, so don't be fooled by Robert's lies. The Key West newspaper is called The Citizen, and it did not publish this story because it wasn't newsworthy.

Next, what does parking have to do with all of this? That's right....nothing.

Oh and I thought he had a problem with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. Now, it's the Key West Police also? Wow. This guy thinks EVERYONE is out to get him.

Now that you mention it

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

As everyone can see this Mike worked for Ocean key resort and the Fury. Lets get a few facts out here.


OCEAN KEY RESORT- First of all this is a company that lies and doesnt keep their promises,Besides that they illegally took a yacht and sold it, oh and when they sold the yacht the poor guy from north florida who bought it was lied to by the hotel. please see below mc carthys interview with local news paper in key west.


Dennis Reeves Cooper
Last October, Kevin McCarthy, of Amelia Island, Florida, drove down to Key West to look at a 45-foot boat being offered for sale by the Ocean Key House Resort. He looked at the boat, talked to a broker and was ready to offer the asking price of $110,000.

Then he learned that the hotel was planning to auction off the boat. So he checked with hotel General Manager Steve Boswell and the hotel's attorney, Alan Eckstein.

I wanted to make sure that the hotel really owned the boat, McCarthy told Key West the Newspaper this week. They told me that they had taken possession of the boat after the owner had defaulted on his dockage payments.

So McCarthy authorized his broker to bid on the boat and he got it for $71,000. And he got a purchase sales agreement from Attorney Eckstein.

McCarthy motored the boat up to Islamorada and left it there for 10 days for cleaning and servicing. Then he and his wife returned to the Keys to take the boat up to Amelia Island.

We were nearing Miami when both engines quit on us, he said. And while we were waiting on a tow, I got a call on my cell phone from Robert Krutko, who identified himself as the former owner of the boat. He told me, You are on my stolen vessel.'

He said that the Ocean Key House had stolen the boat from him and had illegally resold it, McCarthy said.

I didn't know what to think, so while we were being towed to Miami, I called Attorney Eckstein. He reassured me that everything was okay. Then I checked with a Miami maritime lawyer recommended by the towboat driver. After listening to my story, he told me that I had probably bought a stolen boat.

McCarthy said he had already made arrangements for extensive servicing in Ft. Lauderdale, so he had the boat towed there and, back home, consulted with another maritime lawyer in Jacksonville.

He agreed with the Miami lawyer and, after some more research, he wrote Eckstein a letter demanding that they return my $71,000, McCarthy said. It took them a couple of weeks, but they finally sent me the money.

Last December, the Ocean Key House sued Krutko in federal court, alleging that he owes the hotel more than $60,000 in dockage fees. Krutko has counter sued, alleging grand theft.

Krutko said that, in June of 2005, he and his wife bought an existing sunset cruise and snorkeling business based at the Ocean Key House Resort marina. The deal included the boat.

We were paying $3000 per month for dockage on a month-to-month basis, he said. But we soon learned that we were losing thousands of dollars because the concierges at the hotel were referring business to our competitors. I complained to General Manager Boswell and he promised to put a stop to it. But nothing changed.

Then, the hurricanes of September and October 2005 blew through, and many of the docks and walkways at the hotel were destroyed.

The hotel had ordered all boats out of the marina before the storms but, after Wilma, we were allowed to return because our slip was intact, Krutko said. But we were not required to pay rent for a couple of months because the marina was not operational.

But by December, when the walkways in the marina had been repaired, he and his wife had decided to move the boat, put it up for sale and move on.

But Boswell begged us to stay, even offering six months free rent because of the storms and the problems the concierges had caused us, Krutko said. But the problem never got any better.

So, a few days before the six-month free rent deal expired, Krutko said that he had an employee move the boat out of the hotel marina, up to his home on a canal on Cudjoe Key, 23 miles away.

But it was decided that there wasn't enough room to put the boat at my dock, so he anchored it out in the bay, Krutko said.

But, the next day, the boat was missing and Krutko filed a theft report with the Sheriff's Office. Deputies reported that a call had come in from a neighbor who said the boat was adrift and that he had called the Florida Wildlife Commission (FWC).

An FWC officer found the boat and a Sea Tow boat showed up at the same time. Then a call came in from the Ocean Key House. Hotel officials reportedly told the officer that the boat had broken loose in the marina and that it should be returned to the hotel.

Incredibly, the FWC officer released the boat to the hotel, rather than having it towed to a secure location until the owner could be found,Krutko said. It didn't seem to occur to the officer to question how the boat could have drifted' from the Ocean Key House to a location 23 miles up the Keys!

A Sheriff's deputy reportedly later found the boat chained to the dock at the hotel marina. Upon questioning, hotel employees reportedly told the deputy that the hotel had a lien on the boat, but they could not produce any paperwork to support that claim.

The Sheriff not only bought that bogus claim, a deputy called me and told me it was now a civil matter,Krutko said.

Not long after that, the hotel sold the boat to Kevin McCarthy.

McCarthy said that, even though the hotel returned his purchase price to him, he is still out thousands of dollars for other expenses associated with buying and moving the boat. I am watching Robert's lawsuit against the hotel,he said. When he wins his suit, I'm next in line.

Krutko calls the hotel's lawsuit outrageous.

They are even suing for dockage fees during the time, after the storms, when the hotel didn't have any docks. he said.

He said he is also disappointed in State Attorney Mark Kohl, who refused to accept his grand theft complaint against the hotel. Why can't he see grand theft when it's staring him right in the face?

While the lawyers wrangle, the boat remains in the custody of federal marshals in a Ft. Lauderdale marina, continuing to run up dockage bills.

as you can see not only did they steal a yacht and sell it they lied to the guy buying it. After they got caught up in their lies they refunded the mans money quickly. hmm

Then i understand this great ocean key resort in key west was just found guilty of a number of violations from the DEP. Im told they were just fined in the neighborhood of $20,000 dollars plus need to come into compliance on many issues.
Sources also tell me they have been reported to city about illegal boats in the marina which they and the city have denied. I understand as of several weeks ago the DEP had photos of the illegal boats in the marina and the hotel has now come forward in writing and admitted they had more boats than they were allowed after being caught.....
hmm

Im also told as part of their violations in the marina (State critical concern waters for environment) they also didnt have a pumpout station for the crap theyve been allowing tennants to dump into water nor did they have an oil unit for recycling the old boat oils. I would bet thats not good on the environment. More to come on this im sure.

FURY CATAMARANS- Owners Scott Saunder and Michael Halpern. This company is one of the largest tour boat operators on the island. I had a boat in the same slip they are currently in and was approved by coast guard for 49 passengers. I was told by the corrupt city of key west i could only run 24 due to parking regulations.
After i was forced out by the hotel and city for these regulations the fury comes in and gets a license by these same officials for 3 to 4 times more. hmm
When i confronted the city officials about this they could not explain why (maybe money,bribes) Below is a code enforcement officers letter to the city attorney shawn smith from their own code enforcement officer jency probert.

Hi Shawn,
I think it would be prudent on the part of the City to allow Gail the opportunity to review the existing file regarding Zero Duval and the parking issues at this location prior to a license being issued to the Fury for their catamaran. Carolyn has been using 'historic' information to base her decision on. However, the parking situation in this area has dramatically changed with the drastic reduction of parking spaces at Mallory Square. As she stated, Ocean Key House at one time, leased parking spaces from the City in Mallory Square (there use to be a gate to the parking lot). To allocate 70 percent of the existing parking spaces for waterfront based activities would seem erroneous in light of the fact that there are only 70 parking spaces at this location (which is 70 percent of what is required for the rooms) as it is. The reason that they have valet parking is to obtain 33 additional spaces (part of a variance). Essentially, they have no additional parking spaces available for any activity or business.

Thanks,
Jency

as you all can see after they were confronted on this the code enforcement officer writes the city attorney telling him under the parking ordinance law (which i was enforced) " ESSENTIALLY, THEY HAVE NO ADDITIONAL PARKING SPACES AVAILABLE FOR ANY ACTIVITYS OR BUSINESSES"

As she points out they are illegal to have any businesses operating,they dont even have enough spaces under ordidnace for their hotel rooms. Now to the next point, the city (crooks) has been saying all along, ocean key resort marina does not have any illegal extra boats operating out of there. i will soon post a copy of the letter they (ocean key resort)sent to state after their violations meeting telling the state yes we do have more boats in marina than permitted. So why did the city lie...... Its simple if you google john jones key west he is a city official just arrested by the state for falsifying licenses.(hmmmmm) the funny thing is while the hotel and city denied these extra boats the state had investigators down there documenting/photographing it. As far as the owner i dont need to say anything just google halpern key west or call small businesses down there ,they will tell you.
Oh i almost forgot the fury (knowing the laws) decided to sneak their large catamaran into the dock(with no permits) on a sunday when city officials wernt around. When the great concerned citizens reported it they were fined but still allowed to operate. You see money buys anything in key west ???


SO THIS MICHAEL WHO WOULD LIKE YOU TO BELIEVE THE OCEAN KEY RESORT AND FURY CATAMARANS ARE POOR INNOCENT PEOPLE IM COMPLAINING ABOUT YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THE EVIDENCE OF CORRUPTION,LYING,AND CITY OFFICIALS BREAKING THE LAWS. YOU SEE IN KEY WEST THE LAWS ARE ENFORCED ON EVERYONE BUT A SELECT FEW. JUST GOOGLE -DUCK TOURS KEY WEST -A SMALL COMPANY RUN OUT OF TOWN ILLEGALLY BY BIG MONEY, AND CITY OFFICIALS, THEY WERE AWARDED 13.5 MILLION. YEP KEY WEST IS A CITY OF LAW ABIDING PEOPLE AND OFFICIALS.

And yes i almost forgot this law abiding people also have a police departmet that has been classified under the federal RICO. That means basically corruption.

Criminals in the keys have been allowed to rule the islands for to long now its time to bring them to light. Chris whoever you are keep up the good work these are slimy criminals who think im scared of them or something. If they had real balls they would say it to my face but they dont. I will not stop until these criminals are brought to justice for illegal acts they committed. Anyone reading please go to my post link above this and see the liars these people really are and how the nephew bill gatchell clearly lies and says his uncle freddy is not part of that company, i believe i see his name on the list as vice president... How stupid can one be..

Point Proven

AUTHOR: Michael - (U.S.A.)

I have nothing to do with the Gatchell's or their business. Robert can not even keep track of his countless rants. I am an ex-employee of Fury Catamarans, another company he filed a Rip-Off on. I know so much about this because I used to work out of the Ocean Key house, owned by Noble House. Apparently, he doesn't remember that we've met in person before and I know all about his deviate nature.

Also, every single dive and boat business in the Keys has been informed to keep a watch out for the phone calls from Robert. He illegally records the phone conversations and manipulates the call-takers into saying what he wants them to say.

Another point was proven on this complaint. Not only does Robert respond under different screen names, but he forgets what each name says.

By the way, Robert's diatribes on this website have now gone over 20. He is the poster child of the Blabber Mouth category on this site.

You want to know how much Robert cares for the Keys, the waters, and the environment? He left an old boat at his dock in Cudjoe Key and allowed it to sink. As a result, there was an oil and gas spill in the residential canal. He's made no attempt to clean it up. Currently, he is under investigation by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and Monroe County Code Enforcement. I'd like to see his defense for that.

Never mind, what am I thinking? He refuses to answer questions........but you all were able to see that already.

Gee, That's Funny, "Mike"...

AUTHOR: Chris - (U.S.A.)

Or should I say Fred...I've already read all of Robert's statements about American Marine Yacht Brokers & Fred Gatchell. Read the news stories about the theft of the boat, everything. Seems like it's pretty clear what's happened. He's gotten the word out about your unethical practices (you thought you'd get away with it because he's from out of town, huh?) & now you're trying to come up with something to post on this site. Gee, "ex-employee Mike" who seems to know all of the details, why come on now & post something for your former employers? The old bullsh!t meter is going off again! Smells as fishy as your Key West ambiance. Obviously it's one of the perpetrators trying to mitigate the damge by attacking the victim!
