    Looks like he's still trying to make a buck on Martijn's talents. Only 47.95 (regularly 99.95!)

    Oh...and it looks like there are a few of Monk's books available ;)

    I just sent Amazon an email detailing what I found...maybe they will dump his A$$. It might be satisfying if you did the same...

    Thanks for the hint Steve!

    I wonder about the 191 design professionals. Did he sell 191 versions? And what is a ,080 professional, thats only 8%, is the rest of that person unprofessional?

    Sorry...you never know when dealing with language barriers and how things get kind of twisted around.

    This (almost) instant communication halfway around the world can make for some interesting faux pas

    You´re quite right! Sometimes it´s difficult to transport humor through the wire too. But in this case I could´nt resist. All the world uses the , to divide the full number from fractions except the US. So, in Europe we understand he has sold 191 and a fraction of ,080.:D even that is already too much.............

    Way too much! I got used to the comma when I lived in Canada but I have been away so long that it looks a bit strange to me...so I am a little sensitive to the possible misinterpretation. Jokes on me I guess:eek:

    Would like to ..but....

    Could not find it on amazon Steven....have you got the actual link ...?

    I don`t like parasites like this ..

    I`m reluctant to send Amazon a warning about pirate products on their site without actually being able to show them so ......

    Can you post me the actual link please ?


    I think yes Apex...Amazon should be concerned at keeping a " clean " reputation ......not a "pirate bazaar" :D :D :D ?

    You have to log in to get to the contact us info. go to the help section (top right) and I clicked on Phishing emails (down the list on the left) then saw the contact us button over on the right

    Oh...and the link...just to a search for Edwin Monk or look at the top of the first picture...do a search for the same string...How to build wooden boats etc.

    I got in touch with that pirate outfit suggesting they should stop making profit off other people`s efforts.....


    This is their lame response :

    I like the " Jack Fisher and the 3D Boat Design Team " bit

    As if THEY were in any way to be credited with Freeship !!!!:mad: :mad: :mad:

    In U.S. 191,080 is one hundred ninety one thousand and 80.

    191.(point)080 is how we do decimals here.

    Never mind. Already been corrected by Lewisboats and I didn't see it.
