Re: What to do if someone hits your moored boat?

Same thing happened to my neighbor's boat. My wife witnessed the whole episode. I had just assumed the offending boater would contact my neighbor. When I asked him about it a week later my neighbor said he had no idea his boat had been hit. Not sure what is being done but my neighbor had to haul his boat to have both lower units on his motors replaced. He is not happy. He relies on his boat to get to construction job sites on the islands.

Just another case of someone not taking responsibility for their actions.

Sorry I have no good advice for you. This can be a very tricky situation. Especially since you are neighbors. The marina should have a copy of his insurance policy. I would probably try to find that out and call to get them involved if the owner continues to be uncooperative.
