Gozzer Capt: My Boss Thinks You’re An Idiot, DFO

You should not have taken one sides view of what happened at the CDA resort without getting the other. I am a Captain there ... and we try our best to be polite and professional. The Marina gets jammed beyond belief. ... and on hot, very busy days, things get tense. Nobody ever said to Howard Martinson or anyone else, that the water tank with maybe a teaspoon full of gas would be "just pumped out into the lake" ... there is no provision on the boat to pump a tank out like that anyway ... and if there were ... we certainly wouldn't do something that ignorant. Your article was complete fabrication and your sarcasm is childish. You need a Huckleberry pie slapped up side your head ...

Gary (Matt) Mitchell

P.S. And about our boss ... he thinks you are an idiot ... (Show some testosterone and print this.)

DFO: Funny, Captain Gozzer here sez there's absolutely no truth to the Huckleberry from earlier in this week. Yet, he inadvertently admits that a teaspoon full of gas made its way into the fresh-water system. And he knows what his crew sez at all times. Methinks, the rich kids from San Francisco don't enjoy being held accountable for their arrogance in the back woods of North Idaho. And that Bossman Gozzer lets them get away with acting like jerks.
