Have asked Tropicalescape to comment on that but no reply. One person did point out that Dan Steadley seems to have several other businesses besides Big Dog so I guess it is possible that he moved the registration of his trucks to another name.

Re: Boat Held Hostage By Marine Transport Company

SkipMack, He was given a number at some point in time. At this time it is not valid so for some reason it has been rescinded. The reason is immaterial. He is not in compliance so has committed a crime. All the rest is also immaterial. Anything he has done after loading the freight is also a crime and he is in deep dodo.

The end result may be that he never gets charged unless a federal DOT officer is following this thread. This is no dought why he is not posting on here.

I just hope that when the dust settles the OP does not agree to not give evidence against him as part of the settlement.

Re: Boat Held Hostage By Marine Transport Company

Have any of you social media gurus looked at Steadley's Facebook page and compared his postings and the map of his travels against some of the claims about where he was when? There is a lot of data on there. Just suggesting.

Re: Boat Held Hostage By Marine Transport Company

Has the mast been delivered yet?

Steadley's DOT number is 1002426. His operating status is "not authorised" (see http://safer.fmcsa.dot.gov/query.asp).

Tropicalescapes has from the outset defended this and said that no crime has been committed and that this is a CIVIL matter. Clearly he has been wrong all along and everyone else has been right in saying that a crime has been committed ... thanks to Dsanduril (page 37 of this thread), for quoting the relevant piece of legislation.

I know I'm not confused as to whether this is a crime or not. I would suggest that Steadley very quickly deliver the boat and the mast to save his butt.

Yes, I did. He was apparently at the Marina Village Inn San Fransisco having an early morning coffee watching the sunrise on 18 October 2012. Haven't bothered to look further.

Nonetheless, this IS the internet, and sometimes contributors have differing opinions & points of view.
Obviously, those which vary from mine (& perhaps yours) are horribly wrong.

Re: Boat Held Hostage By Marine Transport Company

KiwiTrucker, Question, if a trucker operates commercially for hire and delivers cargo for a fee, and then subsequently the shipper is advised that the trucker did not have the necessary permits and credentials and thus was acting illegally, is the shipper entitled to his money back if he so presses separate from any law enforcement action?

Hehe, I wholeheartedly subscribe to your last sentence.

IMO the answer would be no. The transporter has broken some or other law and could be charged for that offense. However, he has performed and delivered the load. I wouldn't think that his non compliance with the law would render an otherwise legal contract null and void. I would think that a judge would rule for the transporter but others more learned than I might disagree.

Re: Boat Held Hostage By Marine Transport Company

Folks, now we know the truth of the matter. There are super heroes posting here, and there are stupid people. Glad that is all cleared up!

Re: Boat Held Hostage By Marine Transport Company

Has anyone else noticed that this event is dragging ever closer to the date of the US election.........

Maybe the boat will form part of some sort of Al Quaida Yacht Bomb to kill the new President? I can't think of any other explanation .

Just sayin' (for benefit of Mr Google / Homeland Insecurity ).
