Storage Rant

Ive had the rib stored at a local farm since I've had it, so a few years without any issues. Over the past 6 months I get a call from him saying the rent is 2/3 months behind.

I show him my diary of when I paid him, and he still persists that I'm over due - so a few months I paid him 3 months rent to pull me back up to date, and tonight I've had another call saying I'm 3 months behind 😁

Think it's time to start looking around at other options.


Anyone know any good places in the north west?

Or just set up a standing order for the right amount - traceable then.

Seems like people nowadays are happy to mug people off.

I've had 2 RIBNET members pull out of selling boats to us in the last month. Both times we paid full asking, both times we were prepared to buy blind (relying on an accurate description), as is guaranteed sale. The first time we paid a 500 deposit, only to be told 5 days later he'd changed his mind to sell (I suspect he sold it to somebody else). The second time we arranged for it to be picked up, only to be told today he's sold it, despite agreeing to sell to us!

GRRRR

That's the problem! It's all cash in hands with no receipts.

Last time he said I owed him 3 months I started keeping logs of when I paid him, and for what period.

I don't know if he wants me out, but I don't like the idea of having the rib stored at a place they don't want it.


I am thinking of using this as a reason to move the boat to a coastal area to make the use a little easier.

and yeah found him by looking around and asking

We pay 300 for 6 months in Hertfordshire for a secure caravan storage site.

They accept no responsibility for anything though!

I tend to break issues like this down:

1. Do I want to keep my boat there (yes)
2. Set up a system (give him a calendar - cross off the months paid)
3. If he plays ball, you're sorted - if not, move.

He may be having "issues" and simply got mixed up. Or you have
Ask him if the RIB is in his way - he'll grab the chance if he wants you out.

BTW, I have a lovely space for two decent RIBs behind my gaff - no questions asked - no pack drill....

You'll obviously be needing a set of keys though, just in case there's an emergency.
