Wow, my domain provider sends email reminders well ahead of time and a physical bill. I can also set it up to auto-renew. But, I never want to risk having someone snatch my domains out from under me so they are paid up through 2030. Costs me $130.00 to renew for 10 years at a time. Cheap insurance for $13/year. I hope it doesn't cost him too much to get it back from a reseller.
Website is up as of 5:AM. A great opportunity for little pinheads to disparage a great guy who continues to introduce innovative designs every year. I have seen Dave brush off similar people at boatshows before. He seems to be able to size up guys who are more interested in talking about there own so called abilities, you know the type: " just letting you know I know which end of a fly rod to grab"! Come to think if it, every year after the local boat shows, some little pinhead starts a " I hate Dave" thread, probably one of those "brushoffs".
I just posted on Scadden vs. Outcast. I have had positive customer service experiences with him. Now I need to contact him again. Maybe my experience will be positive, may it won't. But I just got back from a fishing trip, and clicked on his website to see if replacement bags (bear damage) are listed in his accessories for sale. They aren't, but I didn't have any problem accessing his website. If Scadden's customer service is bad, (not my experience so far), that is certainly a negative. But his boats are first-class, and light.
