Re: Boat sank at the dock

Okay, all is said and done now-- it's been 5 months since the boat sank, and the check just arrived last week, for the full amount of insurance that we had on the boat.

Bottom line-- Bluewater...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

OP here. Thought I would let y'all know that there is no resolution yet, 3 months after the boat sank. No known reason for the sinking, and the boatyard is still "working up an estimate" on repairs....

Re: Boat sank at the dock

There had been LOTS of rain in July, with NO problems on the boat (bilge still clean and if not completely dry, then very close to it.) The weather had been clear (or clearish) for weeks before she...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

Someone from the brokerage walked by the afternoon before the night she sank, putting signs on some boats (not ours), and saw nothing out of the ordinary. He didn't examine waterlines, so the process...

Re: Deck Hatches-- Lewmar vs. Vetus

Okay, just called Defender. Woman who answered said they've been selling both Vetus and Lewmar "forever." Different companies, different designs, but equal in quality and performance.

Re: Deck Hatches-- Lewmar vs. Vetus

To clarify, we're putting these on a trawler. Yes, a power boat. Don't kick me off the forum. We still own a sailboat, however damp she might be at the moment.

Four hinges-- interesting thought...

Re: Deck Hatches-- Lewmar vs. Vetus

We're looking at self-supporting friction hinges only-- don't want the support rods. Vetus in that size has 4 hinges vs. only one on the Lemar-- if no one has bad things to say about Vetus we'll...

Deck Hatches-- Lewmar vs. Vetus

We're replacing hatches on our boat (no, not that boat). Looking at low profile size 60 Lewmar, and the corresponding hatch made by Vetus. We've had Lewmar hatches in the past, no problems... Vetus...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

1-Still no figuring out of why she sank.

2-We will definitely disclose what happened, if she is still ours to sell when this is all over.

3-Speaking of "outing," I'm ready to out our insurance...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

Okay, "OP" here. People wanting to know what the problem is, I said it in my first post:

"Here's my question--do we have an advocate in this nightmare?" The answer is no.

There are lots of...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

Engine has been pickled, dehumidifiers run, the entire interior was washed down and sprayed with some sort of anti-mold stuff. Mattresses and cushions etc are off the boat. Water got above settees...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

Okay, to clarify and update: The surveyor hired by the insurance company was there to see the boat the day after it sank, and also the day it was experimentally re-floated. He too was given short...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

Yeah, no, we do have insurance, did look at the policy the day after the loss, did find the paragraph where they told us to notify them "in writing" of the loss, "immediately following", and did that...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

Some clarifications-- it's been 3 1/2 weeks since the boat sank. The one and only time we have had communication with the broker/agent is when we called him to notify him of the accident. Since then...

Re: Boat sank at the dock

They kind of farm them out. Not that I get it either. They put out bids-- who wants to make an offer to insure this boat?

Boat sank at the dock

Our beautiful 43' sailboat sank at the brokerage dock where she was listed for sale. Overnight. She was in great condition, and well maintained, at least when she was in our care. We've been all over...

Yeah, so far everything we've done has been at least "professional" looking-- usually better. But waaay more time-consuming than any professional could ever afford.
