Re: Never Buy a New Hanse
It is o course that with the one-side story, it is better to get some "evidence". OP is frustrated and disappointed, want to do some flaming. This is not a good place for such, in particular without photos.
Alas, OP cannot publish such either - has too few contributions. More frustration.
But before we go to far in this, we should remember that Hanse has had rudder issues before. As many others have had.
If there is a typical crack in the rudder, and no other signs of impact, then - photo and put on some of the many servers available. Publish the link in this thread. First then is it possible to assess.
Hanse must have had some reason for not paying. What?
If Hanse refuses, then it is an insuranse issue - sudden impact, decided by Hanse.
Most Hanses are nice boats. Wouldn't hesitate myself. Do not loose any sleep over an issue like this.
