Damaged rib

Not storm related, dry stack related. Went to pop out on rib saturday and found when it was put back in dry stack the previous week who ever put it back must have been blind folded. I have a scrape along one side on the cover where it was pushed and scraped against metal upright of dry stack and a dent in the gps aerial , a bent gps aerial stainless tube and dented a frame where it hit the skeg of a boat above. Im rather pissed off about it.

You mean they didn't contact you to let you know??!! Someone needs their wrist slapping, and the rest!! Has it taken you this long to calm down?

Ouch!!!!

I guess accidents can happen, but they should have had the decency to let you know. Either way, if it's their fault they should sort it for you.

Good luck

Yes accidents will happen, especially if boat handling procedures are not followed which I think may be the case with this incident. Yes they have verbally admitted liability and im sure will pay for damages to be put right. However as its not the first nor the second incident ive had im rather annoyed as it means ive got to mess about now and get quotes etc etc and sort it out. Would rather it wasnt damaged in the first place and it would not have happened if normal safe practicies were followed (I believe).

Any one know where I can get a GPS Antenae for an old Garmin 178C GPS Plotter/Sounder which isnt made anymore.

Anyone know how stainless steel tubing once bent can be put right ?

Maybe it's time to consider moving to another dry stack? 3-times is a bit excessive
