Re: Urgent help needed to recover abandoned yacht NW Barbados

After re-reading the article, I see the Daily Mail has edited that part about the boat ownership. Sorry, but maybe he can clear it up for us.

Re: Columbia cruising - security issues?

A lot of boats coming and going everyday with no problems, but of course sh#t happens on occasion.

Because of the drug interdiction navies, this part of the world is actually pretty safe, and...

Re: Looking for the right boat

Adam, I'm with you on this, but I think you're making it too complicated.

I saw things going south about 15 years ago, although I knew about the 2018 currency reset back in 1988, so 15 years ago I...

Re: carribean vs the other side

What I find is people bring their culture with them from wherever they came from, and expect the new country to be the same. Basically every American, European, Canadian, and Australian, when first...

Re: Adventure Yachts brokerage experience

Oh, I see, he must have moved at some point or closed the other location. google said that it was closed, but i guess were referring to the old location only. sorry about that.

Re: Am I being unreasonable concerning handover of new 450S

Without knowing what the contract says, I think it's hard to tell if the company is acting in a sub-standard way.

Re: Am I being unreasonable concerning handover of new 450S

Does the OP's boat come with the exact same new boat warranty that other Lagoons receive,........that are 'new'? If not, then it's not a new boat.

Re: Am I being unreasonable concerning handover of new 450S

He states in his OP that it was shown at the Singapore Boat Show. It sat 4 or 5 months in the water, probably waiting for a buyer, and I guess this is when it was struck by lightening. He says...

Re: Am I being unreasonable concerning handover of new 450S

As a gunkholer, this is my first choice for a boat. I know it's ugly, but it does the job the best.

Would I buy this boat with a $60,000 discount?? Hell no! Don't ask me how I know what...

Just my two cents, and OP, I feel very badly for your predicament, and I hope everything is resolved to your satisfaction. I'm not being 'negative', but realistic about this contract, and so many...

Re: Adventure Yachts brokerage experience

Seems like Adventure Yachts is now permanently closed.

I've seen businesses close before, and some of them grabbed for everything they could get at the end. AY may have acted this way because...

Re: Adventure Yachts brokerage experience

He does seem to explain a little from the buyer/showing agreement. You don't see that kind of openness very often. (All caps). This is referring to his buying clients, not the sellers.

Re: Best Central/South American countries for cruisers?

I don't think we have any drug traffickers on this site, but the alphabet agencies can read any email coming in or leaving Colombia.

Re: Curious Idiot question #3 How do you pay for that?

Never use the word 'bribe' when dealing with cops or officials in most likely, third world countries. Ask them, "what is the fine for what i've done, and can I pay it now?"

Re: Confused. Should I buy a Raymarine E7 chart plotter? or just stick with a IPAD??

The first chart plotter came out in 1985, so the use of an ipad is relatively new in comparison.

Re: Confused. Should I buy a Raymarine E7 chart plotter? or just stick with a IPAD??

I thought it was obvious that I was referring to ipads vs fixed chartplotters.

Even if we take your statement, 'which new technology is being used and how it's used', that's also a matter of an...

Re: Confused. Should I buy a Raymarine E7 chart plotter? or just stick with a IPAD??

I can't understand a spirited debate over opinions of taste. If someone uses ipads, chartplotters, phones, smoke signals, carrier pigeons, etc, and are happy, then so be it. Whatever works for...
