bully48 (05/06/2010)i think we allagree it sucks, but should we go and ask for a hand out no!! Save it for the people who make a living that will be effected. Think about itthis way and some of you have probably been in this situatiion: on the first day of summer that brand new yamaha, merc. cat etc. blows out and the warranty dept tells you it will be at least six months before you get your boat back by that time fishing season is over do you file a claim for your loss of use? i know plenty of people this has happened to and is bad as it sucks i dont think they expected compensation because they couldnt use it, they just expected it fixed and quickly as possible. Because i cant go fishing and enjoy the waters i love do i expect compensation? NO, I just expect it fixed as quickly as possible!! Maybe im different but i dont expect compensation just because im a rec. fisher and i cant go for a while. I bet if you did the math the money you will save by not being able to fish is a hell of lot more than the $2500!! Just my opinion and thoughts like everyone elses i exppect not everyone to agree.

on a side note did you realize what company used to be BP when they were in the US?? The old name would be more aporpiate right now!! GULF OIL !!
I agree 100%

Im for DRILLING.

Im for the rights of everyone being free.

Im also for the fight against illegal and fraudulent actions. If you feel you are personally or your business is damaged by BP's leak then file a claim. If you are seeking money for no means at all except you feel like since Larry got 2500 for filing a fraudulent claim your entitled to the same. GOOD LUCK. I hope in ten years when they reevaluate each case you are hammered with Attorney costs, excessive interest and loss of everything you thought you had fighting it in the court of law!

Remember when Ivan and Katrina hit, I bet you were one of the ones who filed for FEMA money when you has ZERO losses just the thought that since LARRY got some your entitled.

I hate two things .... LIARS AND CROOKS!

If you have a problem with that file a claim!

When you see a poor needing family or individual with nothing whether it was their choice or it things just happened remember you took money which wasnt yours and could have been theirs for just a few days of relief. If you dont have any self respect, well your in a category Id rather not associate! Your part of the problem. Be responsible and remember the OIL BP is producing and refining makes your life easier, if you desire not to use this product find an alternative and save the World!

Shell oil just took over a BILLION DOLLARS alotted for the Alaskan Drilling offshore, and stuck it into a Play onshore... I like drilling! Im gonna be filthy rich one day because I strive to better myself instead of suck off some tit everyone else is fighting for, and if I dont make it..... Ill sleep easily everynight knowing Im honest! Do something with your life, 2500 bucks, pay some taxes if you claim it and then wait till the evaluation period to see if you filed something fraudulent!

My son finally reaches the age where he has an interest in boating and fishing and this was the year we had planned on getting on the water and letting me pass on the things my father passed to me....How do we put a PRICE on that loss ??? There is no amount of $$$$ BP could ever pony up to remedy that!!

I too decided to use boating/fishing to bond with my 2 boys. Bought a boat, spent alot of money for fishin gear etc. Now that is threatened.

I never really believed in an amount of $ to compensate for mental anguish, so I wouldn't pursue that, although I'm sure there is an ambulance chaser, who would come up with a figure for me. :doh

Bottom line is that I paid for full coverage insurance for a year, and boat launch fees for a year.

If the claims line ever got small enough, and all that was left was us rec fisherman (and BP still had money), I would ask for the boat launch fee, and a prorated insurance (Liability only) reimbursement.

I would take that check and give it to someone who had to learn a whole new way to support their family, or had to foreclose, and relocate, because they can't earn a living doing what they were doing before the spill.

As for my son's, I will take this tragedy and try to teach them that thier actions, decisions, shortcuts could have FAR reaching and devastating effcts on others. Don't take shortcuts!!!

Jeez I went on a rant!!! Sorry.....

Downtime, how much would your boat have sold for two months ago? How about today? My bet is you have been affected. I know my house and my boat lost a bit of value in the last forty some odd days.

minkmaster (05/06/2010)I am not saying all are legitimate but right now I am out $1000 dollars for a deposit on a three day trip to Venice and I believe BP not the charter guide is responsible. The captain would surely pay me back if I had to cancel but it is the difference between feeding his family and keeping his boat and livelihood and giving me back my money, I don't blame him a bit. He has lost his livelihood. I think ultimately BP is responsible for this.
My wife and I have returned nearly 25 thousand dollars in deposits for fishing trips. We usually collect at least 30% up front. But that money does not belong to us unless the person(s) chartering the boat do not show up for the trip or if they cancel inside a week of the trip. If the weather is bad, the deposit is refunded. If my boat breaks down, the deposit is returned. If there is any reason on my end that I can not take these people fishing, I will refund their money and do my best to find thema reliable boat. For a charter operation to take (steal) your deposit, for any reason other than those listed above is criminal and you can tell them Captain Jim said so.

You think that because the value of my house or boat went down, they owe me money? I don't think so. I have a job. I still have it. I fish to relax.. I.E. RECREATIONAL BP don't owe me a thin dime.

I'm probably going to end up loosing my job over this whole deal because nobody is fishing anymore. Therefore no new tackle sales or service work needing to be done. I am the newest guy at work so I'll be ther first to go. I know alot of people have said "I can get a job elsewhere" but for me, I went unemployed for 10 months before finding this great job at J&M. I even tried to work at Burger King or McDonalds but they wouldn't even hire me, so its not THAT easy.
