Some stuff was taken after money was exchanged and it signed over. I guess it was just the principle of it all. Thanks for all of your opinions on the matter. On the bright side. The boat is amazing and I'm on it as we speak. Thanks guys
I'm glad you stuck to your guns on the mooring lines, but what else did the guy take after it became YOUR boat? Once the boat became yours, he became a thief, unless the items were specifically excluded in the deal. Even then they should have been removed before the boat changed hands. Hopefully you have the boat in a new location where the PO can no longer access it so he doesn't decide to help himself to MORE of YOUR stuff!
