Wow, so I didn't even officially have ownership
of my new boat and I already had my first Marina Nightmare.
My wife and I were just about to get a head
start on cleaning
our new boat. The deal had not been finalized (no cash exchanged), but the Marinas
launch day is coming really quickly. So we figured we would get a head
start on some little things. The PO and I had talked and we had discussed all the details, but he was going out of town for the weekend.
Anyways, we were just about to expend some elbow
greae and the Marina operator comes up and basically says the PO owed $2300 in back dues, and he would not launch. I was pretty angery as this was something I specifically asked the PO. We packed up out cleaning
stuff and went home so I could e-mail the PO and find out WTH was going on.
Turns out the PO had paid, had all the receipts and the Marina just plain sucked at book keeping but figured it was better to try to get paid again, just in case. I will be pretty happy when I get my boat out of there and into it's new home.
