Watch out for these guys!  They are selling yachts but act like used car salesmen.  Jack Curran sold me a boat and the day of closing we fond out there was an air conditioning problem.  After taking off from work, getting a rental car, getting a babystitter I was told that I needed to leave the boat so they could repair it in the morning.  After telling them I had no ride, they asked me to bring it to 31st Street Harbor and it would be repaired in the morning.  I do this and took the train home.  The next day I come down to the boat and it is still not fixed.  I brought the boat home and now they will not come out to fix the air conditioning.  The Sales Manager Michael Porreca wouldn't even communicate with me in regards to it for 5 days after.  He told me I should drive the boat back to them for 15 hours instead of having their technician drive a hour and a half.  The Seller and myself even offered to pay for the services.  Skipper Bud's basically closed on this boat knowing there was an issue, made promises to repair the boat and then now that I am gone with the boat will not live up to their promises.  This was a fraudulent transaction and I will now be forced to sue them to prevent this from happening to someone else.  Stay away from this Marina or you will be sorry!
