Ok this is my second try on this, my first was deleted when I try to insert pictures
Hopefully the Moorings company will not put me on the black list
for asking this questions.
I was in Koz, Greece
this summer and one of the leisure activities I enjoy is walking in the boat
harbor and dock
yards looking on boats
As I was in the dock
yards I found a Robertson&Caine Leopard
43, that was undergoing repairs
. It looked like they was repairing cracks or faults in the joints between the hulls and bridge deck
(on both sides), or maybe only in gelcoate . I could see repairs
both in front and on the center section but I had no sight of the back so don't know of repairs there.
Sorry for pour quality of repair pictures when I took up the camera
the repair people said no pictures, but when I took up my phone
they didn't react
As I am looking to bay a multi hull
(but not before 2012) I frequently scan the Internet
for adverts and find this today:
2005 Robertson and Caine Leopard 43 Sail New and Used Boats for
As to my surprise the advertisement don't mention the repair done to the boat
, and since the name is the same and the location it must be the same boat....
My questions is:
Is it normal practice to not mention repairs of this kind??
If a repair is very good done, It is not considered to mentioned??
Will not a repair of this kind influence the value of the boat??
Are not the broker
responsible for informing customers of all faults, or is it only when contract
is written they must do it??
In my country an advert like this without mention this will result in major back payment/or the boat must be taken back (for the seller) if somebody discover this in one or two years time..
PS!! If the pictures is not working you can find them in my photo
album on this forum...
