Ok, I think this thread is quickly loosing what I had intended.
The guy does not have AIS
He has a broken radio
He agreed to do everything to sort this
He was anchored 2 boats away then left..? I would guess this is not the action of a honest person..I would reason to think it is reasonable for him to pop over to let me know his plans.
I have contacted the coast guard on the Dutch side, as he has left the Dutch side by checking out of customs
on Monday they have no power on the French side.
I have also contacted the French Customs
and police to help but as it's a civil dispute they are not really interested.
I am trying to look for him on the French side of the island and asking for local people to just keep an eye out to help me find him.
Yes I agree 2 sides of a situation but I have much more important things to do than to set up a name and shame campaign on a stranger. The guy hit my boat, did a runner I need to find him quickly it's the Caribbean
..he can be anywhere in a short time.
I was minding my own business reading at anchor
when this guy hit my boat I was down in the cabin
He did agree to help and was very reasonable and I trusted him, he seemed a respectable person.
What I do not understand is why he left without telling me where he was going and making arrangements with the damage .
If the tread is in the wrong place I am sorry, what I am looking for is local people to keep a look out to help me.
Please remember I am the innocent party here with damage to my boat with nobody now to pay for the repair. I do not think this is fair.
Just off topic
Some of you please give me a break, this is not a public shame campaign, I just need help to find the guy. I think by checking out of a country where the damage was done is not a good sign and I have Every right to try to find the guy. If he innocently shows up then I will remove this, and if I find him I will remove it as well. It is just a tool to find the guy.
I am looking for help to find this guy, what am I expected to say ? People need to know the reason why I am looking for him. Please don't use this tread as a bashing stick towards me just because you don't like the post. That's a waste of time.
I have a genuine problem with this guy and need to find him...do you think you have a genuine problem with me ?
Please feel free to offer advice like where on the internet
I can find help looking for the guy. But if your over 2000 miles away you are not my target audience.
