the thing is even if you should win this in a legal sense you will still be living in and exposing your family to a hostile enviroment! How much fun can that be?????/

Fighting for a way of life or your family is an important principle but this seems too much like a battle over a place to dock. If you want to fight over real estate - live on shore.

Conradconrad

Thanks for your posting.

"Winning", is a question of perception. Legal or moral, the only "winning" I am seeking to achieve is Total Reconciliation. Perhaps for some a principle not worth fighting for?

If I "win", there will be no "hostility", as the marina operator will also be satisfied with the outcome.

I have no doubt that mistakes have been made (such as allowing my houseboat to strike the hard and toppple sideways in an uncontrolled manner) but although I can not change the effect of some of these mistakes, I am more than prepared to be positively minded, in my approach to the way in which I come to terms with these mistakes.

Facing an eviction process does not help!

Regards,

Noah.

Thanks for your posting jon frum.

If I hadn''t already tried, tried and tried again to speak to the marina operator over and over again, I would agree with the sentiments you express in your note.

Believe me, I have tried for years to make these people understand the difference between right and wrong. I do not accept that marina operators can treat customers with such contempt without being held accountable for it. Please remember, when my houseboat was allowed to strike the hard and topple hard against the floating pontoons, my wife was eight months pregnant!

The marina operator then just says tough luck? If you don''t like it, perhaps you would like to look elsewhere for a mooring?.....in other words LEAVE! Nope, I say this is no way to treat a Lady, a Family or Private Property.

On every level this is not just, but in my experience with this operator, you cannot talk to someone who is not listening.

If I am misrepresenting ANY facts or details then I would be happy for this marina operator to point them out to me.

Hence my campaign is strictly aimed at those who understand the wrongdoing here and are kindly prepared to voice their distaste, by e-mail or other means, to the company concerned.

Thanks fo your posting pblais,

One principle I am very concerned about is the notion that a Corporate Enterprise should be held accountable to its word.

I was informed in writing that there would be "no problem berthing a houseboat" at this marina. Then why was my boat, with family aboard grounded and then invited to leave?
Why was I then, told to leave? Now is looks as though I will be forced to leave and there runs the very serious prospect of being sent to prison in the process.

I wonder how much bullying a Sailnet member could take before they stopped feeling any pain.

This "battle" is not so much over a place to dock but about me and my family, who have done nothing wrong, being treated with dignity and respect.


Perhaps you might like to engage with the operator and after you get your response, if at all, you may accept what I am saying?

Noah2.
