    Ran, those big waves sunk BigRed and pushed Bimini down to the Southern Hemisphere. Tragic really...

    Didn't have to look up diddly... I was doing it before it was popular in mid to late 90's... In fact it out right ticked my competition off to sell at a loss and gain their customers... :)

    The Loss Leader has been a common marketing practice for over 100 years. It has nothing to do with taxes.

    Did you look it up on Wikipedia?

    There are a lot of good resources on line to get a good definition. Wikipedia, Dictionary.com etc.

    Where was/is your store?
  • CompleatCompleat Posts: 2,774 Captain
    I didn't even get on line til years after I was doing it. Think Wiki came out long after that. I ran out of a factory in Lake Park and another in Plettenburg Bay, South Africa. Covered low end domestically. African facility was high end and skirts. Skirts were huge as was manufacturing whole lures for other big labels.
    New partner that side was back door selling to my clients on this side so we split. Frances then Jeanne took my local place apart in 2004. I started to rebuild but then put it on back burner as I was busier (and happier) fishing... Still have a lot of my machinery and stuff but its idle. I consult for another lure company now... Miss the $$$ but don't miss the headaches...

    They shutoff their AIS 25 min after my post.
  • GO2ABACOGO2ABACO Posts: 15 Greenhorn
    They probably did not shut off their AIS more likely they are out of range of an antennae that is broadcasting over a computer.It probably is illegal for a ship that size to shut their AIS down.

    I can assure you they were not out of range.
  • Here is a screen shot of the AIS site at 4:00PM Nov 1

    The Bimini gofast definitely has their AIS turned off!

    Write what you believe here on FS, Resorts World Bimini is reading every single post here and on facebook!
  • Bimini DreamBimini Dream Posts: 407 Deckhand
    Well it's good to know that they are concerned about what we read or write on this forum. If they were so sure of themselves and their project they certainly wouldn't care what this forum has to lay down in print.

    Well that damned Bahamian Gobment, how dare they not do as we please. I say send in Navy Seals and put explosives to that pier. Boy if W was in the White House this would not happen. Hey I have a good idea, how about a Bimini Pig Invasion to put a stop to this; wait we have a Democrat for President and we all know how that's going to end. Well back to the invasion board, will keep you posted. 10-4.
  • BiminiwallBiminiwall Posts: 79 Deckhand
    I'd be concerned if I were them. I spent 5 hours today private messaging all their facebook fans. About 60% of them were pretty receptive and had no idea what they were doing in Bimini.
  • SapingasKangasSapingasKangas Posts: 279 Officer
    5 hours, really ? Pick up a good cause like save the icebergs ( that's not a Jedish surname).
  • They turned the AIS back on for the ride home. I guess they remembered it is a USCG requirement for a passenger Vessel enroute to or from the US navigable waters.

    Careful there RW!
  • Oh Bimini wall, don't waste your time with a **********
  • SapingasKangasSapingasKangas Posts: 279 Officer
    I see you and mini-you are on a first name basis. The only one wasting time is you; there are more honorable causes.
  • BiminiwallBiminiwall Posts: 79 Deckhand
    I wonder why they turned it off yesterday... Here is them coming back, they were never out of range.

    Just looked and AIS is tracking.Bimini the only way a ship's AIS is going to show on that site is if a AIS antennae within range of the ship's AIS, which is line of sight, is hooked to a computer.
