It's two different topics.

(Topic #1) I was looking at a vendor that would sell Nirvana boats in bulk (just click the linky in previous post) and it would come out to 405USD for three, if he is in fact for real. As of this post I'm communicating with them but I still don't trust them
I would then let the boats go to forum brothers at a highly discounted rate. (I'm magnanimous like that)

(Topic #2) As for the Gemini 600, (I too am sage and tend to wax philosophic) I tend to reserve judgement on things until they are in my hot little hands.

The postman just delivered it and I will do an unboxing and give it an unbiased review!

Thanks for breaking from convention and in telling folks what to do. I certainly appreciate your suggestion but alas you got off sideways as evidenced by people getting my previous post

All the best!

I am on the right trail now - too many conversations at one time for an old guy I guess. Good news on the decision to pass on the "tri-fectra" deal. As I originally stated - too good to be true!
Ok now that is settled I will look forward to your review of the HK Gemini 600.
Think I'll go get a drink!

Its true there are a lot of conmen on the internet. By the time you relize that you have been conned they have closed up shop and moved to a new site. That is what makes me wounder about the Nirvana on ebay that we have been talking about. Pictures that don't match the item, different and changing shipping rates and such.
Just being nosy I checked shipping cost fom Nashville to Hawaii and also Nashville to Saint Louis on a box that weighted 15 lbs and 40inches x 12inches x 12 inches with UPS, FEDEX and USPS.
FEDEX
Nashville to Hawaii 2 day service $99.28
Nashville to Saint Louis 2 day $37.95
UPS
Nashville to Hawaii 2 day service $201.35
Nashville to Saint Louis 2 day $67.21
USPS
Nashville to Hawaii parcel post $26,23 priority $72.45 and express $96.50
Nashville to St. Louis Parcel post $14.61 priority $22.80 and express $63.65

Not saying that I am going to bid on it but I would hate to see a fellow board member get conned with a high shipping cost when its much less then posted in the ad.


And this will be the last that I will say about this Nirvana on ebay and let others get back to the reason for the Nitvana thread.

Hiya Capt'n Crash,

Yes I do but you indicated that you would be takin' viddy this coming weekend.

I thoroughly enjoyed these viddys and the accompanying music!

FWIW, I'm waiting for more info from Chidago on the new super-top-secret nirvana killer before spending my money.
