Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

There is a boat in the UK that was T boned at the start of the Round the Island race. The damage extended down to the waterline.

There is a thread running on the repairs with pics. It may be of interest to you.

Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

Hey, sorry to hear about your boat. Hopefully your dog was not on board when this happened?

That is a big fear of mine, something happening while we are away and our dog and cat's safety is out of our hands.

Good luck with dealing with the insurance company, Boat US is normally pretty easy to work with. Hopefully the damage isn't too bad and you can get back to sailing soon.

Never sailed before. Quit my job, bought a SMALL sailboat and moved on with the wife dog and cat. Blogging about our experience Thewildjasmine.com

Thanks WildJasmine. Riley and I were both ashore at the time of impact. He goes everywhere with me and has only been left on the boat a handful of times, when I'm anchored. Docked is another story.

I too am hopeful that the boat will be repaired. Right now it's a matter of numbers and whether the insurance company will pay to repair it or try to total it. It'll be close, I think.

not too likely, right? loss of use is only covered for commercially documented use IIRC but I with CK lots of luck, Catalyst was out of commission all of last year after our neighbor hit ... this looks fixable but still a royal PITA.

I seems logical, but sometimes insurance companies don't trade in logic. I'm still aboard my boat, the hole is patched up. Last night I cleared out as much of the fiberglass shards and wood splinters from the v-berth and slept there, which was nice to do. Before I'd drop the table in the salon and sleep there, but that had a way of shrinking my livable space in half, which didn't do my sanity well.

Fact is, it would be hard for me to stay in a hotel with a dog and living on the Paleolithic diet. I'd need my own kitchen. When and if the boat is repaired, that's another matter. I have some legal people looking into my options.

This is a disconcerting ordeal. I want it over. Now. Thanks for the continued support, guys.

Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

Extended Stay hotels have kitchens and allow dogs.

Even if they can do repairs in the water and work around you, the fumes are going to be too strong to stay on the boat until it all cures.

Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

Glad to hear you're getting some legal advice and hope you can recover without having to get adversarial. I understand you prefer not to, but be sure to defend yourself. Good luck.

I did not get a survey as I trusted the ship rite and my own observation and experience. Good luck.

Regards

Andrew

ps - just finished reading the blog ... all is good and you seem to be getting by .... cheers to you both. ab.

Re: My Boat was Hit Bad

@cktalons: I sympathise with your plight. It's never a good thing having to wait on beauracrats to decide the future of your home. Been following the details of your predicament over on CA. Any news yet on the costs to fix?

@SimonV:
And here I thought sailing was about as far as I could get away from explosions and shrapnel damage! What caused it?
