Re: Do dock lines go with the boat?

I figure that after you sell the boat, and the money changes hands and the signatures are signed- at that point, you no longer have the right to climb aboard unannounced and unaccompanied, and you no longer have the right to determine what stays and what goes- if it wasn't implicitly stated that it does NOT stay with the boat, then it stays with the boat.


all that aside, what kind of penny-ante, small time, middle-school bullshlitz jerk-off demands keeping the docklines when he sells the boat that aforementioned lines attach to aforementioned dock?
Cut the lines.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Re: Do dock lines go with the boat?

So whenever someone does something like this my first thought is to see what entertainment value I can get out of it.
So you go on the internet and copy and past some legal documents and make up a three to five page contract whereby you release said dock lines, party of the first part and party of the second part etc. etc. pending insurance, post facto etc. etc.
You need his ssn, dob and licence etc.

You tell your new friend that you would be happy to release the dock lines to him but that your attorney is a real ball breaker and when you mentioned that some real property was to change hands after the closing of the boat that to protect yourself and maintain your insurance you had to have this document signed and notarized.

Because god forbid if he used your lines on another boat and something happened you have to be protected.

Your lawyer may need to be present and he might want his lawyer present also for the closing of the dock lines.

You are very sorry and want to just give him the lines but you know lawyers and insurance, you can't fight city hall.
The closing shouldn't take more than two or three hours.

Then ask him when would be good for him?

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

And don't forget that whenever is good for him isn't good for you. You can only meet at your lawyers office between 4-6 pm(rush hour) and your lawyer is 30 miles away.

Re: Do dock lines go with the boat?

Sounds like the type of person who takes the light bulbs when they move.

Keep in mind that Karma gets them in the end - how much can a person as cheap and miserable as that enjoy their life?

They are ever with us. A comedian once commented that even if there was only one person left in the world, there'd still be an a$$hole around.

Besides, nice new colour matched dock lines are usually the first thing I treat my new boats to.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
