I'm about to take the boat out of his slip to my marina but now he is claiming the dock lines stay. I assumed the dock lines go with the boat and the contract stated everything goes with the boat except for the listed items...the dock lines aren't listed. I've paid him, he's signed over the boat, I think I should be able to keep the lines.

Did I assume wrong? Do you consider dock lines be part of the slip or part of the boat? I need opinions before I start butting heads.

Thanks
My first impression is its bad karma....give them back to him after all you want 1/2 inch anyway. Legally they probably belong to you soince not listed in contract.

Or

You could solve it the way Solomon would. Cut the baby in half. Give him either half the dock lines (2 a 35 ft) or half the dock lines (4 at 17.5 ft).

Then go out and get new ones and use your old ones as emergency or traveling ones,

Well here is the update. I took the dock lines. I believe their mine and I had the right to take them. I guess it might seem petty over the dock lines but I've really felt that I was shown a boat and then its been stripped down. Some stuff I was ok with and some left me with a bad feeling. Some stuff was taken after money was exchanged and it signed over. I guess it was just the principle of it all. Thanks for all of your opinions on the matter. On the bright side. The boat is amazing and I'm on it as we speak. Thanks guys

I'm glad you stuck to your guns on the mooring lines, but what else did the guy take after it became YOUR boat? Once the boat became yours, he became a thief, unless the items were specifically excluded in the deal. Even then they should have been removed before the boat changed hands. Hopefully you have the boat in a new location where the PO can no longer access it so he doesn't decide to help himself to MORE of YOUR stuff!

The only problem you might have now is, what do you do when you find something on the boat, like a switch or other item with no knowledge of what it may do, will the previous owner take you calls or will he tell you to F#@% off. It could say do not turn on before turning off the (unreadable). Then again you could ask here and one of the answers will be right.

Re: Do dock lines go with the boat?

Simon, I bought a "limited production" boat as part of a bankruptcy sale. I'm COUNTING on the people here to help! And if I can do it, with some help, I'm sure BLR can too.

SO, BLR, you do realize that you haven't provided ANY details about the new boat. No pics, no names, no years, nuttin. That needs to change, and NOW Mister! (can you tell I'm a dad?)

Oops sorry. Its my upgrade from my Columbia 26 mk2. I bought a Columbia 10.7. Its in pretty decent condition. I'll see if I can get some pictures up. Its been upgraded with a Yanmar 3hm converted to freshwater cooling. It has a car system instead of the track in the mast making raising the main Sooo easy. Roller furler. Radar, auto pilot. Tons of space.

That apology doesn't hold water without pictures.

Congrats on the purchase; best of luck with her!

I'd break an aluminum boat pole on him.
