Love the service we got. Houseboat almost caught fire. The tech they sent said "you are lucky you didnt all burn in your sleep" when he came to fix the boat. Then my friend broke a toe in a hole in the back deck. When we bring it up to the owner (the guy in this video) he was pissed his employee was honest and said "I don't give a fuck about that" right after mentioning my friends toe. Avoid these cash grabbing scammers at all costs. Btw lots of witnesses and pics for when we hire a lawyer.
