Alright Check thos out...

So I received and Email from Marc Today and just read the email. I sent him on Dec 16th 2008 and check out his response to my email.... I think this guy clearly has way to much on his plate. I think this could be a reason most folks have never receive there shipment from him or have delay in there shipments

Hello Frankie,
This shipment is in port and we will be shipping just as soon as customs clears it and we can get a flight out to pack. We will be flying out and shipping from CA so as to save the time it usually takes on truck to us.

Thanks
Marc

I only state this because my shipment is already shipped and is Still Out for Delivery. Oh and he did not use FedEx as his website states he ended up shipping with DHL

NO....Trust me! Marc's rock is the BEST. I have met him personally and he is a good guy. You can't get better rock than Marc's and many people don't understand until they see it in their reef or fowlr.

I have read lots of forums about people waiting LONG time to get their Fiji orders from Marco Rock. I am also curious to see how the Florida rock looks when you guys get it in. I hope its not too dense/heavy and solid with very little pores. I was very happy with my base rock the caribsea south seas lace rock. I have some pictures of it in my 180 build thread.
