Re: Big Freakin' Sails

No environmental requirement to recover it? I know some lakes that fine you by the day for anything that had fuel in it.

I wonder if your liability coverage would pay to go get it to avoid that.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

We don't know about those issues yet. We'll find out I suppose. It only had a small 4hp outboard (with no gas in its integral tank) - and nothing much in the holding tank either. So no chemicals or nastiness to speak of. It was a pretty clean boat in that regard.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

One lake I'm familiar with wouldn't care if it had a mouse on a wheel, they would make you go get it.

Only trying to think of an angle that might get your liability policy to cover you. Then go after the marina, who negligently left the bumper off (many boats survived) to repair her or buy you out.

This is Texas. The rule here is probably you can just leave it is long as it is < 1000 gallons. Even then it is only required because this is our drinking water supply.

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Damn, I just saw this. Sorry about your boat, smack. Come on down to Boot Key and hang out with some other Texans! There are four of us Texas boats moored side by side here, plus others around the mooring field. We'll dinghy over to Burdines and have some cheeseburgers, their awesome fries, and plenty of beer! The first round is on me, and I'll even pay for the burger.

I hear Cruisingdad is on his way too. It could be quite a bash!

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Thanks Ralph. That would be a freakin' blast hanging out with you guys again.

No worries on the boat. I'll be back!

Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Smack,

You realize that now that you've sunk a boat, we have to start a separate thread about the sinking of the yacht.

In this thread Sailnet at large will:

1: Monday morning quarterback the whole thing
2: Everyone will say how it never would have happened to them
3: Vilify you for your negligence
4: Take no considerations of your feelings in your time of loss
5: Eventually ban you from the SailNet for defending yourself.

It's nothing personal, it's just what we gotta do. Now where's that new thread button?

Heh-heh. I completely understand. It is the way of things.

(PS: Here's a classic thread for just that purpose, the title of which pretty much sums it up: Well my day really sucked. )
