Good luck with your project,
and the boatyard  has said,, in a figure of speaking that he couldn't give a flying fig what dodgy or misleading tactics his salesmen use,, so long as they sell the vessel it's nothing to do with him.
nice way to do business!

looks like you already have one for your "avoid" list.
once we know the yard, maybe we can all avoid it,after this who in their right mind would choose to do business with this shower.?

and lets hope of better luck with George at lby, he sounds much better and I expect has a better moral code.


my appearance is down to me, my attitude is down to you.

Alan,
The Small Claims Court may be worth considering as it is not an expensive route to take (5% of the amount claimed, I believe) and you can represent yourself. I have had to use them twice in the past, not connected with a boat-related issue, and have won my case both times. Take a look at it on the gov.uk website.
Good luck,
Andy

Thanks all, I will probably speak to a solicitor next, as the small claims (which I have used before) is close to £500 with no guarantee of success, and if a solicitor advises against pursuing then that £500 will be much needed for the project

I'm guessing that the boat in question is a small cabin cruiser and, to be quite blunt, £10,000.00 is going to be a boat with problems. What I do find objectionable is the assurance that £5,000.00 would cover any eventualities, that just isn't realistic, either to expect or to suggest, at least not without doing a basic, visual inspection, e.g. lifting the floorboards. Terry Tibbs has suggested legal advice, I'm inclined to agree. It does appear to me that the yard concerned has been negligent.

The survey may not have picked the rotten stringers up because unless you remove all the floors before hand anything screwed down is not removed I found this out on my boat as the majority of the hull was not inspected inside .

Oh I’m a bit peeved to hear surveyors don’t carry basic power tools or doesn’t form part of the ships thorough inspection.
However, delighted to hear this boat is going to be kept and restored bespoken by the owner as they like and it would be a honour to give it a wave if our wakes should ever meet. Wise decision a good boat will always be a good boat either in a storm or at port.

Yes as appears from the replies that survey or not I would have found myself in the same situation, so therefore it is just down to the boatyards salesmans pitch and ‘guarantee’ that nothing expensive would be wrong with the boat, which I suppose is our naivety in trusting a professional in this field not to mislead us, especially after being very clear that our financial situation was not one where we could afford to buy something that needed expensive repairs.

Are we talking a Wild's 'Bahama' by any chance? 43 feet long if I remember correctly. Famously prone to rotting floors and stringers, as well as the lower ends of the bulkheads which tend to sop up the bilge water. I would have expected that any experienced Broads yard would be well aware of this problem, one which stems from the flat and shallow bilges where there is a tendency for bilge water to accumulate and lay there.

It is a Harvey Eastwood ‘Broadminded’

Have to add to the story, the original bill of sale I received was not signed by the owner nor witnessed, I did chase up a signed etc bill before all this came to light, and have since mentioned it during the last conversation with the yard owner, which was many weeks ago now, as I am not the best at staying composed when strong emotions are at play, so am avoiding contact in order to not escalate matters beyond civil to criminal.

Needless to say I have no bill of sale and therefore a boat that is not registered to us, I don’t know the legalities of that?

Insult has now been added to injury as the owner of the boatyard has now lied in a written reply to a letter we sent him.

so I am now naming them, I can accept negligence and mistakes, but now that he has fabricated events that did and did not take place, it is clear that the guy is morally corrupt and therefore leads me to believe that he has no moral compass in his business dealing.
