Re: Chartering and mechanical failures -- next steps
They are not pressing the issue yet, they probably don't even have a claim adjuster look at the boat yet, and I'm not looking to lawyer out of responsibility. Just want to be on a crest not a trough.
The membership agreement had this "Club vessels are insured against property damage risks, except for the insurance deductible", and "Member is financially responsible for paying the insurance deductible upon demand by Club". Remember them saying deductible was 1% of the basis (cost or value not sure which), but it should be on the rental agreement.
I didn't sign the rental agreement, just a charter share agreement, but I guess that answers what my next step should be -- get a copy of the charter agreement.
