Re: Pulled out a cleat at my slip, now getting pursued for damages - advice please
If you have a choice, move your boat and make no further response to anyone about the incident.
In my opinion, they are at the, "Let's try to get someone else to pay stage," one of the most common stages of American life. If they reach the talk to an attorney stage, I think that this will go away.
If you have no choice about storing your boat or must maintain the relationship with the marina, I suggest that you hire an attorney to talk with them and see if he/she can't make it go away for $200 or less without directly changing your relationships.
