I too had a problem with Capt. Downriggin. Looks like things haven't changed. I bought a couple hoochies on ebay from him and he never sent me the hoochies. I emailed and emailed and emailed him and he never responeded. From my own experience and what I have heard, he is a horrible businessman.
Sorry to hear about Capt Downriggins family problems. I tried to buy hoochies about 1.5, maybe 2 years ago. It sounds like people have been having problems since then. I hope everything turns out (or has turned out) OK. It would have been nice to know that at the time. Thanks for the heads up TJ.
