This is essentially what our family attorney said. Gross negligence would be my only chance. But better chances that the local jurisdiction sides with the local marina. Lesson learned. Boycott...

Re: New Boater - is it normal protocol for a marina to not cover damages from dock ha

Being new to the boating community, is it normal for a strut to break on its own with no contact or force from another object?

Re: New Boater - is it normal protocol for a marina to not cover damages from dock ha

I don’t think you fully understand the situation. Appreciate the novel.

Dock hand threw my line under my boat. I asked 2 times in 10 seconds for him to pull the line in, at the 20 second mark he...

Just be aware, if you plan on stopping in at Georgetown Landing Marina, don’t trust the dock hands and be prepared for an EXTREMELY bumpy night due to the inlet and current

Re: New Boater - is it normal protocol for a marina to not cover damages from dock ha

Agreed. Task today was trimming down the bow line so it can’t even reach the prop anymore should a dock hand decide to toss it under my boat again.


Greatly appreciate the input and feedback!!

Re: New Boater - is it normal protocol for a marina to not cover damages from dock ha

Agreed. Everything happened in about 20 seconds. First 5-10 seconds was me yelling at the dock hand to bring in the line, at the 20 second mark he stops staring into space and says “oh, I threw the...

Re: New Boater - is it normal protocol for a marina to not cover damages from dock ha

Also good to note for anyone who was not already aware, BoatUS did not cover the tow for free because “damage was caused by the marina”. In the future always say you “limped in” and are “unsure the...

Thank you for the continued feedback. Seems my best bet is to cross my fingers and hope the marina has some compassion.

Good news is the repair is complete and SummerDaze will be wet again soon. ...

Re: New Boater - is it normal protocol for a marina to not cover damages from dock ha

Agreed. Solo handing and the current was ripping through. Thought the dock hand would understand how to let out a line and/or notify the captain that the he threw the line in the water under the...

Thank you for reading - I am new to the community. Spent 2 months refitting a ‘87 Laguna 30 and on my maiden voyage 650 NM in and the dock hand dropped my line under my boat, didn’t tell me he...
