The items he took were some type of safety harnesses maybe a bosuns chair. The reason I know is after I paid and got the boat signed over I went over it. Not in great depth but I opened cabinets to see what was left. One cabinet had all the harnesses in it. I returned to move the boat to my marina and the cabinet was empty. There might have been more but I didn't do a full inventory the first time. Its not so much that I don't have them because in reality I didn't know they were even there until I opened the cabinet, but it's the fact he took them after the sale. He could have called and said he forgot them and ask to retrieve them....

Oh, for everyone that suggested I keep the peace so that I could ask him questions later, I wasn't too worried about that. He told me that he would answer one or two now but was "not going to babysit me all summer".

And trust me I took all of my spare lines off my other boat for my trip from his marina to mine. I''ve learned a valuable lesson and will be presenting my other boat for sale as exactly as it's going to the seller, even the dock lines.

Re: Do dock lines go with the boat?

So, you've had a day to cool off and think everything over. Aside from it being a good lesson, are you content with the transaction? If so, then my sincere wish is that this is the worst you'll have to deal with in your new boat for quite some time.

I'm not letting it get me down towards the boat. Its not perfect by any means but it's mine and that makes it great. Its a huge learning curve for me. My smaller boat had only a outboard. This is my first diesel. Smaller one had an extension cord to a battery charger. This has electrical systems. The sale is over. The boat is mine. I hope the best for the seller. All I need now my is wife to get off work and come sailing with me.

Without pictures it never happened .

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

Good attitude. I hope your first sail is a wonderful one, filled with comfortable breezes so it starts your (plural) relationship off with the boat on the right terms.

Congrats on the boat but...

Actually, that is exactly the way every contract I've every signed was done. It includes a list of exactly what is included, not what is excluded.

The problem is that they almost always have a vague sundry line item, where the trouble could begin. That line should just be removed. If there is something else aboard that the buyer must have to close the deal, add it. In the end, the seller would probably leave much more behind anyway and always have in my experience.

Years back, I had a signed contract with sail inventory, a specifically identified dinghy and even a dive compressor listed. I flew to the Caribbean for the survey and found the dinghy had been sold, the compressor given away and the spinnaker could not be found. I walked and got my deposit back. Bad, bad mojo, even though the boat was probably passable.

By the way, we did ultimately find the missing sail. It was in its bag, underwater at the bottom of the slip!!!!! True story. Long distance owner.

Re: Do dock lines go with the boat?

If it's of any interest, I bought some nice pre-spliced docklines from Defender. Two sets actually, one stays on the dock and the other travels with the boat.
