I have just spoken to the boat yard again, this time they say that if my Uncle calls him that his memory about my engines might improve!


Sounds Like he has a problem with your uncle and you are getting blamed or used in some way .

I suggest an email or letter to the yard with all the points in chronological order. Also mention in the letter that you want to settle the matter without recourse to solicitors . If and when you go to court you will be the one who appears reasonable and helpfull.Dont get involved in any slanging matches .

Ben, really sorry to hear of your problems, the very short time I spent talking to this guy whilst doing a job for another member on here convinced me he was a little unreasonable.

You must try to do this properly if it may end up involving solicitors etc, as mentioned its a big bonus for you to appear to be the reasonable one.

However if you do want your boat back, I do own some bolt croppers, and we could go in under cover of darkness in one of my other boats shown below.

Hehe, thanks guys... I think I have about another 50 people all offering to help too However, this one is definately for the courts... I will be really upset if this isnt sorted in time for summer... if it not sorted very soon, I will have to counter claim for loss of earnings also, as I wanted to charter the boat this year... it was out of action all of last year because they couldnt fix the bloody thing! I now have one year and a bit left on the warranty so its getting a bit annoying!

Ben, sorry your having grief when on what it appears is anothers fault. The issue of holding someone elses property can be done if the other person believes they are owed the item or value of the item, but to hold another persons boat to gain payment does not under my understanding fall in this area unless the boat is owned by the person owing the money. Believe this becomes theft in these circs but would ask solicitor to confirm or ask for a knowledgable detective who has been trained to expand as probably the 'cop' you saw would not know this area in depth.
