Thanks ADS. The guy bought 6 Topper dinghies from me last year, the courier bill was 460 which I agreed to split with him so he paid me for the boats less 230. I've just spoken with the couriers regarding a seperate delivery to me, and discovered that the s**t didn't ever pay the bill! So he caught me for half and stuffed the couriers over.

Some people...
Well theres contact details on the site, I don't think the business is going anywhere, or atleast the website doesn't mention any equipment (apart from the fireball photo) and the equipment is what people go for.
What were you doing with 6 Toppers anyway! Ive still got my topper, although I sail a standard rig Laser now.

We have a couple of Marine Colleges in the area. They get pots of dosh each year to blow on new fleets etc. I buy a lot of the stuff that's being sold off. I also bought 5 Picos last year, I keep the odd one back for our kids, but with a Topper, a Pico, a GP14 and surfing, they tend not to get much use.

Fair enough, Toppers and Picos are generally indestructable, traning centres are a good place to get a newish dinghy relatively cheaply, not sure I would trust a grp boat from there, probably full of filler!
That website looks looks like the guy, called Andrew as well, the only other Legend related to sailing are those ghastly yachts with the rib aframes!

Yep, that's him. He seemed ok over the phone and he has pretty good sailing credentails. The couriers are well cheased off about it, and I don't blame them. I've mailed him and advised him to get it paid. I'll be making a visit if required.

It looks as if he put the website together pre getting the Toppers. Looks like he had an old Fireball, 3 Canoes and a bow and arrow at that point.

I believe I have seen his opperation (early 2005) and that is about the right description. He's based on a caravan/chalet park on the west coast of Loch Tay. I'm not sure I would have much hope of getting 400 pounds or so from him... ...looked like a shoe-string-budget affair when I was there. The website is actually better than I would have expected based on what I saw in person!

Anyone that goes in for dodging out of bill paying is hardly destined to establish a thriving business. I'm surprised that the guy is still in operation.
