I'm in the purchasing process with Bay Area Water Sports(Tampa) and am dealing with Jim. Being from western Canada and unable to see the boat, I wonder if anyone has purchase history comments they can share.

Not that guy!

Just Kidding!

Jim is a great contibutor to this board and many purchasers have spoken very highly of him. I am sure some will be along shortly.

I bought a starter from him and he bent over backwards to get it shipped to me in IL for the weekend......of course it proceded to rain all weekend!!

Not a boat, but I did take advantage of him a year or so ago to buy a prop. Great deal, and a good guy to work with.

I was thinking the same thing.

I've never worked with him, but hear a lot of good things about him.

Very stand up guy, my only gripe is that he's a Green Bay Pakers fan but I guess no one is perfect.

I bought my boat long distance from Jim just over two years ago and had the best experience possible. Boat was exactly as advertised and everything about the sale including my trade went as smoothly as possible. Absolutely a stand up guy that you can trust.

Just don't ask him to use any electrical tape. :rolleyes:

I nearly bought a boat from Jim last year. I chose a different used 197 from MYMC based solely on color scheme.

I would highly recommend Jim to anyone. He was great to deal with, so much so that when making the decision to go elsewhere, I felt bad.

I have never met Jim face to face, but have talked to him on the phone ordering some parts, Yes I am in California and get my parts from Florida…….. he is a stand up guy :cool:

Jim is a great dealer and a great person. I have worked with Jim on numerous occasions to get parts and ask questions. He will bend over backwards to help you. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a boat form him.

Jim went out of his way to help me out when I needed some odd ball parts. I will buy all my parts from BAWS now on. I am still waiting for my local dealer to call me right back. It's only been a month now!! If I had the cash to buy a new MC it would be through Jim. Great guy.

I put up a Perfect Pass group buy a couples of years ago.I had many PP dealers responses including all the big ones but JIM came up witn a special price for TT members that nobody could beat.
I had mine ship to my door in exactly 28 hrs(no kidding!) and all 8 others buyers received their in 2 days.
Jim went through all this troubles for us and my guess is that he didn't made a lot of profit out of those sales.
There should be a lot more dealers like Jim!:)

Well TEAM TALK members and fellow you know whats. Thanks for your input. Dr. Kent and I where able to FIRM up a deal today for a boat to go to the GREAT WHITE north sometime between now and the middle part of June. Your input was the best and put him and his family at ease.

Those $50 checks will be going out soon. Sorry if you did not sign up for one sooner. It was part of the CASH REWARDS program. HA HA HA

We get that $50 on the 36th month following this month, or something like that, right.:D

I know it's too late, but I tried to buy some parts from Jim. I say tried because MC actually didn't make what I was asking for. But, Jim went out of his way to make sure I had the best solution.

No doubt, that's where I will buy any future MC parts (maybe even a whole boat some day)
