I was just sat here thinking there are business adverts on the page but Ive not seen anything relating to anything like this. With the amount of members the site seems to have would it not be a good idea? Surely a lot of good could be being done here and if it is already I would love to be educated.

I see what your saying Robin but I would always take any complaint to the place I was complaining about in the first place, give them chance to rectify it I think thats fair dont you? I dont really see the sense in writing it online untill you have atleast done that. I am not condoning bad business operators but peoples expectations differ so much whats good for one may not be good for another. Also people are born complainers these days, me included but its extremely difficult to please everyone all of the time. I would have refused to take it when it was being wrapped or if not noticed till I got back to my boat/home or whatever I would have returned anyway. Theres a chippy near me that I used once when I moved in and I refused to take the fish when the guy was wrapping it. It was overcooked to the point it had gone like rubber, he wasnt happy about it but I bet they took more care after that !

Reedham too! But like everything today with Insurances sky high and yes, boatowners I am sure want no damage done to their pride and joy I can see their thinking. Double mooring will be debated on here, from now, till errrrrr........ :confuse: [size=2][color=Teal]Iain. Lower your windscreen!!! Ooops too late!

A polite word may well get the desired result. If either Matthew or Daniel don't know, it will happen to others won't it? I have found both of them very approachable provided you don't go with all guns blazing or you'll be on a hiding to nothing. I would suggest a well written Email to either of them and see what sort of response you get. Asking for the employee to be sacked/pistol whipped/hanged will achieve nothing, just state the facts and that you were 'most upset' and then let us all know the reply. I have to agree. Having a moan on a public forum will achieve absolutely nothing, other than to perhaps make the OP feel better. Why not take it up with Barnes. How else are they to know. Its possible they never come on to this forum!. Barnes's are the only people who can deal with this complaint, so why not give them the opportunity.
