Chartering and mechanical failures -- next steps
Three of us chartered a boat for a day (from the same organization that we taking classes at). The windward shroud's anchor ubolt failed, the mast broke in half, had to cut the mainsail to get the mast secured, for the tow. We were not over powered (gunnels nowhere near the water on a close reach), going to broad reach.
So should we seek legal advice? Trust in our relationship with the school? Get 3rd party surveyor for the damage?
Any other suggestions.
