pirate Delivery skipper available..

Well.. its official.. the New Season has begun..
Just got my first booking of the year, a Lagoon450 from Spain to Greece where the owner will collect it for a summer enjoying the Islands.
Even nicer is the fact its a repeat customer.. always nice when a customer comes back, it means they were happy with my services and the condition of the boat on arrival.
Anyway.. I am booked for 2 weeks in April but am available from now till the 1st week of April and the last week of April onwards.
Perfect for West-East Transats or anything else that may be required.. Med, W Europe and further.. or just a local (Europe) quickie in March.

Have a good one

Phil

Re: Delivery skipper available..

Hi,

I need a delivery skipper for a Lagoon 400/2010 from Tortola to Gibraltar,
mid May.
Boat needs a refit (interior) as it was damaged by hurricane.
Boat is fully functional:
new sails- rigging checked by professionals.
new steering
new raymarine navigation bundle
one engine new- one engine not functional
any additional info on demand

regards

last time i delivered a lagoon 440 we lost an engine,manouevering with only one engine from a standstill proved to be very difficult,as was getting on and off of docks.
reversing, the boat would only go in circles.
in my opinion i would not class the boat as fully functional with only one engine!

having a dinghy and outboard to assist would be essential for close quarters movements,which you have not mentioned in your list of attributes

pirate Re: Delivery skipper available..

Agree.. had problems getting into Queensway Marina in Gib with just one engine capable of reverse, had to go bow in and its a tight place.. just one engine would be impossible.
Alternate charging facilities if any???
Would need a lot more info and details of damage and repairs.. seem to remember damage to stern and bottoms from your threads last year..
Have you a survey report???

I'll do it for $144,000, $72,000 payable before I even leave the house, the other half due upon completion of the trip.

And you're coming with me. If I'm gonna die mid-atlantic because of a shoddy repair by $10 an hour pro, by golly I'm taking you with me.



Boaty, I'll pay you $36,000 to follow us, perhaps you can save us.

I would suggest you arrange for an engine repair somewhere local to where the boat is.
I don't want to mess up someone's advert thread. To much. I doubt if most reputable delivery companies would be prepared to deliver the boat with a major deficiency. Insurance and liability issues are just to great.
If the boat is in a location where a repair cant be made. If its all approved by insurance. A delivery company may be willing to move to the nearest location a repair can be made.
