Two year later response via the internet?
I enjoyed how I spent my own finances & personal time attempting to contact Ryan Bonato after
the shop was closed & the owner was missing in action.
At one point I drove to his parents home & inquired as to where Ryan was - no response.
I knew Ryan was living with his girlfreind in coquitlam - Perhaps hiding out?.
As far as my knowledge with fibreglass I have spent several years in the marine idustry
& have produced several molds for large corporations in which are still being used today.
-This project went south the second it started.Upon being hired I was asked to help in a major
hull repair & I gave my reccomendation & Ryan clearly did not want to spend the time to do the repair
the correct way as he stated "It's my buddy's boat" "I need it repaird quickly".
I responded clearly that a de-lamination of this magnitude requires accuracy, Time & the correct materials.
Ryan again refused to listen to the reccomendation & I stated clearly of the lamination complications
due to the position of the boat Ryan preffered due to his "time deadlines".
Yes I did work on One of my R/C boats but I was polite about it & asked if it was acceptable to do so after
hours, Ryan agreed so I saw no fault in doing so.
Ryan sure did have financial problems to the point his buisness shut down just two months after opening.
I saw several issues with Ryan & his company, I attempted to help IE: showing up early before 8AM
to open things up for him, Instead I waited for Ryan to get out of bed by 10 AM & show up to work
(His own buisness) at 11AM.I was not keen on waiting everyday for him & starting my day close to
noon.I spent allot of Odd hours including three overnighters to help him out & get caught up with the
fiberglass repair.I was fed up dealing with Ryan's tardiness, His attitude & his MIA's & strange hours,
But I tried to look past it & help out another human being, I really believed Ryan was just another "good guy"
trying to make his buisness work, I was willing to help him any way I could.Ryan had strange dealings:
Selling vehicles & used tools, I even met up with some of his "buddies" to make deals with vehicles.
- How this all arrived in a issue mainly was I had simply asked for my pay, I submitted my hours
& Ryan chose not to compensate me - He was irrate at my hours for some reason, He felt that
"I was ripping him off with hours" - My solution was "O.K. lets sit down & resolve it then",
Time went by, no resolution with my hours & no Ryan to be found.
I met Ryan's Family, Became a freind to Ryan, I felt I had made a solid lifetime friendship with Ryan,
Instead I was caught in a bad situation with Ryan & Vinnie's Garage.
As far as slandering via the internet - Ryan you ripped me off -Simple as that, I have proof, I have documents, I have other witnesses & I have pictures & Why did you not respond to the Affidavit?,
A two year Idle then a response?.
Since this fiasco I have moved on & I too hold no ill towards Ryan,
I just can not recommend doing buisness with him.
