No not a silly question I always wandered the same
We pay a fixed ground rent for the caravan which entitles us to use the boat yard at our own risk at no extra charge (as long as there is space)we wouldnt get the ground rent any cheaper for not using the yard, its a bonus that we have use of it and a good saving. the boats have been there for years with no problems theres 2 secure gates,cameras and a security patrol, supose if someone wants somthing bad enough theres no stopping them!

been there, got the tee shirt

what we learnt from it all is that it's your insurance that covers your boat/outboard where ever it is, even when you take for service/repair, and you should let your insurance know where it is, we tell them even when it goes in for service, they are usually happy with an email. our honda 150 was stolen a few years ago, the insurance, towergate mardon, were very good about it all, but we had all of the service documents up to date etc

i hope you get sorted

Yes - it will be your own ...unless the yard can be deemed to be liable through not acting reasonably - ie leaving the gates open , keys in the boat overnight during service and all the other daft things that could happen - then you can claim they are 'liable'.......

Hi,

sorry to hear about your engine, I had one stolen myself a year ago. Towergate Mardon were excellent but before accepting the insurance offer, remember to add on the cost of items which have been damaged such as battery cables, steering etc. 'My' assessor had only mentioned the cost of the outboard and missed all the ancillary items.

Good luck.

Thanks ppenman
I have listed all the works to towergate with full costings, all the work has now been completed and the boat looks great,it is now up for sale with madog boats portmadog.i am still waiting for an offer from towergate who have said there is a waiting period of 28 days incase of any recovery,which is fair enough
