My Boat Plans Review
To buy or not to buy?

I am writing this after someone asked on my other blog if MyBoatPlans.com is scam or not.

My blog isn't about boats at all (it's a personal blog, in Indonesian), but the article he commented on was about "safe online shopping tips", so it's relevant. He wanted to buy it, and he asked for my opinions before buying.

If you're also wondering whether the website is legit or not, you can count on me because I have been a Clickbank affiliate for years (MyBoatPlans.com is using Clickbank to handle payments) and after spending a little time, I managed to get a "backdoor access" to MyBoatPlans.

One thing I can tell you is, you will get the product "Martin Reid" is selling. It's real, you can download the materials instantly.

But the question is, is it worth buying?

As a Clickbank affiliate, I know that there's a lot of people who post positive reviews on any product they are promoting just to earn some commissions (75% per sale for this particular website). This includes MyBoatPlans.

There are many quality products sold using Clickbank, but you will need to spend more time to investigate a website before buying because irresponsible affiliates usually post reviews to rake in as much money as possible.

MyBoatPlans Review - The Facts

To save your time (and money), now let's start with some facts about the site:

1. The Pictures

The person creating the website just took pictures from the Internet and put them on his website.

First, here's the fake testimonial from "Dave Webber":

Fake testimonial, took someone else's profile picture

He is not Dave Webber. The guy in the picture is actually Michael Feaster, an IT Professional. You can check his Linkedin profile. I can ensure you that the other testimonial pictures are stolen too.

Then, here's another stolen picture:



That picture is not "Martin Reid". The actual person owning the picture already knew someone stole it, and he said that the boat in the picture was built in 2005, not 1985. The owner of MyBoatPlans took the pic from Guillemot-Kayaks.com

Here's his response:

2. The Boat Plans

I guess the first point should already ensure you that MyBoatPlans is not worth buying. But I'm going to show you the most important point here: the materials.

Well, in this MyBoatPlans review you will not waste your time because I am telling you that the creator of the site just put together materials you can find online.

The "step-by-step instruction" PDF guide is taken from a 1950's material by Popular Mechanics Magazine. You can get it for free here:

The boat plans are taken from here:

While the videos are just those you can watch on YouTube for free. Here's the proof:

You can find these on YouTube

If you want to watch one of the videos, here it is:

3. The Forum

The "active" Q&A forum is just full of a compilation of questions and answers taken from Yahoo! Answers. An example of the Q&A:

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070910134629AAc5Q36

In the member's area, the owner also promotes another product so he can rake in more money.

Conclusion

Don't buy MyBoatPlans.

Just get quality boat building books on Amazon:

Epica, Anti-Islam?

I'm not going to waste your time here.

According to them, the short answer is "no".

Yep, that's true. Epica don't have anything against Islam or any other religions. According to some interviews, they are just against extremism.

However, honestly as a Muslim I think the use of the call for prayer and the Shahada in "Fools of Damnation" and "Seif Al Din" is just not right. The songs are great, but I really hope they will remove the call for prayer and Shahada parts to respect their Muslim fans.

Well, that's just my personal opinion.

Here are some interviews confirming that Epica is not an anti-Islamic band:

"Mark : Funny thing is, there’s a Lebanese girl who collaborated with me on Mayan’s album : Some of the lyrics were influenced by her political views. I’d like to point out that she’s a Muslim, because some accuse me of being biased against Muslims, and that’s completely ridiculous."

Miracle Mind Method - Not Miraculous at All

Review by Elsa Sakina, July 13, 2012
I was immediately attracted to the neat sales page graphic, and when the video played, I was glued. Plus, I saw that some of my Facebook friends "liked" it.

Maybe you felt the same way when you landed on the sales page.

The video presentation was delivered attractively, it's not just some guy reading a text on the screen.

Considering how professional the physical appearance of the website was, I expected Miracle Mind Method to be as great.

But I was wrong.

After I went to the download area and checked out the products, here are some facts I can give you:

1. What is this product about?

Miracle Mind Method is an information product. It is basically about using the "power of your mind" to raise your consciousness and achieve your goals.

2. Who is the creator?

It's Chris Cains, but honestly I couldn't really find who he really is. He didn't even put his photo.

It's stated that he is a "success coach"…

How to Attract Money – Joe Vitale and Robert Kiyosaki’s Wisdoms

Let’s get to the point: Attracting wealth doesn’t require some weird mantra. The Law of Attraction does work, but sitting down and practicing visualization alone are not enough to attract wealth.
