AY, its the insurance company
to date one quote and a survey by a qualified surveyor who hadn't a clue about ribs and suggested a pollyfiller and paint job ! I explained the facts in words of one syllables. they now want another quote. Have Peters from Chichester coming Wed. If you think some yards are expensive wait for the quote from Peters, however saw the 30' fairline they did a few years ago after it lost 4 feet off its bows. Brilliant repair, you couldn't even see the join of the new bow section. So fingers crossed she will be finally repaired. However I now keep a look out for a yacht called Sorina and the trail of devastation she leaves in her wake. Normally moored off Priddys Hard, Gosport.
I agree the weekend should be great and I will be there, we just need to make accm and mooring arrangements early. Fanks for taking on the organisation of this, much appreciated and I am sure there will be a beer or two from those attending.
