Not quite my take on it Biff. I agree I personally would wait for court but it's likely I'll lose. Yes the police won't take any action regarding criminal charges for handling stolen goods but they will recover the boat to the rightful owner if it's proven to be one. If they don't find the owner it will go on the bumblebee.
I think it's all above board and the OP maybe knew more of the issue then a letter as the first point of contact, just find it strange the first thing his seller would do is instruct a legal money-pit before even a call to the seller, although clearly he's innocent in all of this too (the seller/OP)
What engine did it have fitted ? What year was the boat ? What did you sell it for ? What sites did you check when you first bought it ? I can see several Avon 560's outstanding. One with a Yam 115 2 Stroke fitted which is what yours had right ?
