    In my case it was shipped 'fob destination' which meant I didn't own the boiler until I signed for it off the truck. So any damage settlements before that point was between FedEx and cozyheat/new horizons. I bet in the case of that attack FedEx paid more than 2 k to new horizon.

    I'd be on that if I was close & shopping - take a few panels off & smooth out some dents & you be styling.

    Talk with Dave at Evergreen Energy in Naples. He retails the Empyre line from Pro Fab Industries. Open system, very easy to operate and forgiving on wood and moisture content.

    I heard from a guy down the street that vigas was going bankrupt. Something about a massive recall due to faulty lambda sensors and they can't cover the recall cost.

    Better stay away from them.

    That might be - but the optics are terrible.

    We have one dealer bad mouthing another dealer on a public forum without really saying anything.

    To me that reflects as poorly on yourself as whatever you might be implying with the Vague-Speak.

    Just my neutral opinion.

    It was a joke. But from the pm henfruit just sent me I don't think he thought it was funny.

    I have an Attack, and am certainly not unhappy with it, dented or not. After the learning curve, it's one of the best purchaces I've made.

    I'm in the camp of "If it ain't broke don't fix it". Sounds like you got a good one.

    Last year there were accusations made by henfruit that new horizons was committing fraud and the owner should be in jail in regards to the UL listing...

    steel over 1/4 inch will slow your heat transfer and cut down on efficiency. If your worried about the steel best bet is to make sure it's made from boiler plate and treat your water.

    Woke up to another pm claiming he never said Zennon should be in jail. So here is the link.

    http://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/ul-listing-now-available-on-woodguns.81348/#post-1041302

    My point is and was this is not the first time he has bad mouthed another dealer. And since he is one of the undercover dealers who doesn't always make clear that he is trying to sell his product I believe his motives should be pointed out.

    I made the joke about vigas to illustrate how easy it is to post negatively about another product or company. Maybe henfruit is protecting us from another Larry b. Maybe he is just trying to sell more boilers. Either way stop pm'ing me henfruit. We can 'settle it' right here in the public.

    Perhaps the joke was in bad taste, for that I apologize. I obviously made up the recall of lambda sensors.
