    Marco Polo Boats, Inc. (MPB), seeks a creative boat designer willing to work on speculation and in partnership to develop MPB’s concepts for small boats.

    To date, MPB has three boats in varyings stages of design, and at least three other boats and boat components described and waiting for CAD work. MPB plans to either manufacture the designs alone or in partnership with manufacturers, or sell the completed designs for third party manufacturing.

    Required skills include:

    - excellent CAD abilities
    - willingness to explore untried ideas
    - “beyond the hull” design capabilities, i.e., propulsion and boat component design

    While MPB is willing to work with anyone worldwide, proximity to Michigan would be a plus to allow for frequent face-to-face brain storming sessions.

    Terms of any partnership are negotiable. Must be willing to sign a non-disclosure/non-compete agreement. Please contact Mark Vermilion at mark@marcopoloboats.com.

    When I see terms like " willing to work on speculation and in partnership " I generally think. "No money to pay me for all my work and effort".

    An opportunity, is not an order...

    If I may reply, my granting you and everyone a new important rewarding opportunity, should be thanked for; as this is what I also will appreciate if someone lets me know of new-knowhow for the industry or for my locating a good contact person in a potential business venture which is good for the industry and its partners.

    We all hope to be paid for our work! I already have more then $2 Millions invested in this project, and yet to see my pay from this effort I have made to advance Maritime knowhow (Based on my invention).
    Please note, that where you have more to offer a client then others can, you can expect more rewarding success for your actual investment and time on any project you work on - like in this case, where new knowhow can put you ahead of the competition, which is the 1st benefit I had offered you!

    I understand, that the nature of good business, starts with good-will, as it is expressed within this website, a website which is extending the goodwill of its owners and actual supporters who are helping mariners like us network and potentially benefit from our effort and investment in time and actual funds.

    My point: Is please be/stay thankful and respectful, as I am, for this fine website and the good networking and opportunities plus education it does offers so many mariners and people, worldwide, people who are interested and also need to know more about boating and related issues to good safer and more joyful boating.

    Respectfully yours, Amnon (AMI)

    Amnon Or Mike or whatever name you are useing now. My post above was not directed to you but to the original poster.

    But since you have decided to open your mouth let me just chime in here a bit. You have come onto a website devoted to Marine DESIGN not VENTURE CAPITOL. You have made claims about your product that you are in no way willing to support with facts, and then you seem to get upset that people are calling you on it. I searched the web, I googled you. I have called some friends in BC and we will see just what is what.

    I will remind you that YOU came HERE and MADE CLAIMS that YOU are NOT willing to SUPPORT.

    So either back up what you and your product can do with some actual verifiable proof. Or find a website that isnt full of Engineers, Scientist and Mariners that deal in the REAL WORLD with REAL FACTS. If you want money go see your banker. You say your company is worth 2.9 Mil then you can surely front a SBA loan for the $25,000.00 you want.

    PS I am what the US government calls a "Qualified Investor". If you do not know what that means then look it up. I have yet to see anything you have published on any of your ideas including your ASCIIII idea that would make me give you bus money.

    So get some proof, or go find someplace where people are willing to give away thier money. This is a BOAT DESIGN forum.

    Please stop insulting me with your small minded ways, and follow your own advice

    The technology and inventions that I bring as news to the more respectful and appreciative readers of this website, are related to new advanced boats and ships' designs, of the future, and this is not where I can yet share the confidential information before it is to be made public, or where I have to prove to you my claims or supply information you must appreciate is highly valued to me and the future owners of it, not to its potential users, which you may be one of them, and not one of us who bring new advancements to the industry and its future users.

    The sponsors and the many readers of this website are respectful businesspersons and companies plus mariners whom are committed to the Maritime Industry, and are interested to know if there is real news for the industry - as my real news are, and I am not seeking any venture capital but real potential mariner partners or investors which will help all others benefit from my inventions.

    And please use your real name, and come clean before us all 1st yourself as Mr or Mrs or Miss Kay9, before you ask from me to do so and insult me in public for using my proper name, like a fool I think you really are, who is not appointed to make judgments on others who are better people then you seem to be!

    Seem to be getting mad there. Thats ashame. Dosnt change any facts though. Hey I get amazing claims all the time. Why just today I was told that if I would just trust someone I would have a website that made millions, I would get a check from a guy in Zimbabwey for 22mil If I would just give them my bank account and that aliens had landed in New Mexico and the government used the technology to create the lava lamp.

    Extrodinary claims REQUIRE extrodinary PROOF. Otherwise your full of poop.

    Ill remind you, that you came HERE. I didnt tell you to come here and make these claims and ask for money. YOU came here and did this on your own. Now that you have you dont like what we have to say? TOO BAD.

    Whats even better is we should be THANKING you for telling us about ....well... whatever it is your mumbling about. I gave you some good advice on your first post. Ill give you some more here now. Get used to hearing NO and GO AWAY with your attitude, and your ability to communicate.

    Finnaly as to who I am. Dont worry about it. Im not related to you, you dont owe me money and Im not a cop looking into your past.

    K9 - yep, you have some good points there. This guy is on three separate threads, talking about a revolutionary new air and fin system to dramatically increase boat hull speed.
    According to his web site, if you have between 200 and 800 thou, you can learn the mystery and make a lot of money.
    A lot of other people are shaking their heads in amazement too - it does read like the Zimbabwe letter you referred to.
    You are right - the burden of proof isnt on you,
    VIVA SKEPTICS OF THE WORLD!
