I've just shared this on our stolen boats and outboards Facebook page and a message has come back to say the ribs have been found but the engines were stolen

The RIBs never left the marina (were dragged to a secluded part of the yard which is where they whipped the engines off).

I use this marina in the summer, the yard areas I have always thought have very little security. Nothing stopping anybody just walking in.

as this is a marina who pays for new engines? marina insurance or the boat owners?

often wondered if marinas have a duty of care?

Owner or their insurer. If your car gets stolen in a carpark who pays for a new car!

Well it depends on the car park type actually, it isn't as simple as that. A free car park in a town centre have sign posts about liability, I've never seen one at a marina. If you pay to store your car then it is on the storage owner with better storage places.

Let's put it another way, if you put the boat in for a service and it is stollen off their premises.....who pays?

I would imagine your marina contract will have small print is the legal answer.

All marinas will pass the buck to the customer - when you sign in and pay your fees you'll see the sign / accept the terms. (Actually almost all car parks, caravan parks, storage places do that too; it would take a very specialist [expensive] place to include 'insurance').

many people have found out to their cost that THEY do. I know someone who had an interesting situation when his jet ski got nicked from a workshop, and discovered it wasn't covered by his insurance because there was no clamp on the trailer. That created some "slightly heated" discussions with the workshop, but legal advice was that the workshop had no obligation to cover it, simply to take basic security precautions. I believe it would be similar if your car was nicked at the garage. If they left it on the forecourt with the keys in it they've been negligent, if its locked up overnight and someone breaks it to get the keys then they've been reasonable.
