Basically, they have been trying to contact me direct, which they have been asked not to do by the solicitors several times and on the one occasion i accidentally answered it to them he told me he wanted the boat brought back to him for assessment as the glue probably hadn't adhered properly, even though i repeatedly told him it was an additional scratch that was leaking the air. He then proceeded to tell me that it was rubbish that the boat had been devalued at all and that he will not and refuses to deal with insurance / solicitors as it will cost myself and him a lot of money!
He has since been told a 5th time not to contact me directly and all correspondence is to go through the solicitor, and i have heard nothing for about 3 weeks. I will chase them up soon but currently have family matters to deal with. Basically the guy aggravated me even more and would not listen to much i had to say
