Marine Accident Investigation Branch:

I think Polwart is right in thinking that they will be interested in your problems.

speedie - I hadn't realised you are in southern ireland and therefore outwith their jurisdiction. MAIB stands for Marine Accident Investigation Branch and is the government department responsible for investigating accidents in UK waters or involving UK vessels. As well as actual accidents they investigate dangerous occurances. They do seem to take particular interest in events with pleasure craft if there is a possible design/production problem.

Not sure who the Irish Equivalent is and if they take an interest in pleasure craft.
