    Why do people complain about things.
    And it's absolutely free!

    I don't get it.
    Do you know how long it takes.
    To program a website?
    Over a years worth of work.
    Or maybe more!

    Then come testing and debugging!

    And always complaints, Why?

    It's free!!!

    But, I know in time people will get use to it!

    πŸ“ Replacement Cleats by Dumas!
    2 months ago by figtree7nts ( Commodore)
    Flag
    View All
    I received the replacement cleats from Dumas!
    Dumas sent 16 cleats. I had only ordered 10!
    So, they kept their word.
    Now that’s a good Company!

    FYI, I had ordered 10 cleats from Dumas.
    At the beginning of the months!
    They ended up going to the wrong location!

    I called Dumas told them what was going on.
    They looked most likely a wrong zip code was used!
    They said no problem, They would send replaacements.
    Which they did. And I recieved the replacements.
    three days later!

    Hi Cash,

    Thanks for the compliment on the model!

    It's like this when your pulling into port.
    You are going to tie up on the left side!
    He's on the right side!
    Call it a joke! Only a Nautical joke!β›΅πŸš€

    Oh, the Bollard is what you tie off to!

    I never flew model airplanes.
    But, It sound like fun!
