View Full Version : Bustitup. Horrible seller.

This comes from an older purchase from him, but nonetheless, very negative. I bought a copy mono hull with a stinger, trim tabs, and I think turn fins. Looked good in the pictures. Once seen in person, the hull was absolute garbage. The transom doubler was completely rotted and swelled, coming apart. It also had nine layers of paint. JB Weld was globbed everywhere. I contacted Bustitup for a refund and ill ship the boat back. I paid $140 for the boat, and he offered me only $20 of it because him and his wife lost thier jobs, just had a car get repossesed, and the bank was in the process of taking the house. With the economy the way it has been, I believed him, like a sucker. He obviously can afford internet, which is a luxery, not a nessesity. Its far too late for a Paypal claim for me. I want to warn everyone who buys from Bustitup, BUY WITH CAUTION!!! Or, not at all.

Here is a link to the build thread I started after I realized I couldnt persue a claim or a refund.

I found his sale thread on the mono, but the pics are no longer able to be viewed for some reason. The 1st pic in the link is the red hull as it looked when I got it. As you can see, it was nothing but garbage. The boat ended up going in the dumpster. This feedback isnt to stir up anything, but only to warn others of a shoddy and untrustworthy seller.
