Just out of logic whichever side of the pond you are on, ... I would expect the machine shop to be liable. They must surely take precaution for the safe keeping of your equipment whilst in their custody. How possible that is given the circumstances I cant say, you need to find that out, since, they or the insurers may be using that as a convenient cover to avoid any liability. Do you have any receipts or any correspondance proving you dropped the boat off ?

*Edit * Ah I see your post while I was writing this one .. what a mess

I wish it were that easy. No, I bought the motor and the boat from iBoats.com

I have an estimate for the servicing, but it doesn't include any details about the motor. But I have plenty of receipts (and registration) from when I bought the motor, though. I did ask him on the phone if he has my motor information, and he said all his files are gone, but he has the data on his computer.

It would be better to correspond with him by email from now on then because it is always traceable. It may take some time but I'm sure it will work out for you in the end, even the dealer at the beginning of your thread did say that he would try to claim it back on his insurance, obviously he will be under a lot of pressure himself with after effects of this terrible disaster.

Good luck,

Steve.

God's acts pics speak for themselves, what a $$$$$ mess, assume shop has a minimum inssurance for their belongins, most customers engines comes in, goes out real fast so probably not covered or can be added to his main inssurance. Vandalism, terrorism, acts of God are not covered under normal inssurances fees. What a pitty.

How would you pursue it?
Over this side of the pond a lot of home insurance policies include legal protection. Have you checked yours to see if it's included? It may be a way to get legal help.
