negligence has not been found in any part of my physical labor or any repairs to the vessel. there was only around 1k gals and I didn't hide that I said in a prior post where the news article could be found I just wasn't about to let it come from my mouth. just for further knowledge I just asked for opinions I don't know how personal information was posted about a man that isn't even the owner. as I have never said names or pointed fingers at anyone on here I think its best to say that may have been a little to much. thanks for all the support

Found these pics in a craigslist add.... Looks like the company that did the work at Hoffmans.

I saw them doing the work every day I was at the marina. Came a LONG way.

What a sour deal you ended up with. I know the feeling, I have been burned with tens of thousands of dollars in one single shot in the past, and it is not just the money.
I wish you the best, and I hope you can come out with the winning end of the stick. It makes me remember soooooo many sleepless nights and others where I woke up in the middle of the night with a knot in my stomach and the cold sweats. Reading this is the second heart brake, first one was when the boat sank.
I for one will still root for you and hope the best ending for your story. Keep your chin up

Even if they had 4000 gal of diesel on board the chances of it all coming out are slim and none . unless someone did something to the tank . I will have to say bs . unless of course your hands smell of diesel .

Dno't worry NEMS…the negative comments towards you are all from strangely NEW posters….popping up out of nowhere. ITS A MIRACLE! They're just appearing out of thin air….all new…and all negative to you! Damned coincidence…..AHEM.

NEMS - you need to contact the US Marshall's office, put a lein on the vessel ASAP and then get a good maritime attorney. I'd find an attorney ASAP before the owner locks out all the good ones. This is a very sour ending to this saga. Good luck.

Is the amount of posts on THT an indication of anything other than how much time one sits on a computer?! Have you guys been to the bilge?! Do I get college credits for this?

Well, yes, it can be an indication of a lot of things….and probably proof of none.

For example: when it's in the extreme…meaning post 1 or 2 or 5 being a very opinionated negative post in the middle of an historic thread - that falls under things "that make you go hmmm…" When you have multiple posters like that, it really makes you go hmmm……

But beyond that yes, it can be any number of things, like time in boating, interest in boating,knowledge of boating, type A or type B personality speed of typing, control of ones own time, ability to multi task, etc. Again, perhaps indicative of some or all of these, but not necessarily proof of any of these.

-- and that's before I've had second cup of coffee…...

So tell me why the owner would allow a negligent captain to continue to move his boat?

Just wondering how a boat that has a fuel capacity of 1,930 gallons leaked 4,000 gallons of diesel into the water.

http://www.marlinmag.com/boats/boat-...view-viking-64

They were only carrying 535 gallons of gasoline also.

FWIW, the Coast Guard won't pay for any clean-up...the bill will be going to someone-usually it's the owner of the boat.
Same applies to what the salvage company did.
Some of y'all seem to think the clean-up and salvage was free...nothing in life is free. As NEMS is now finding out...to his misfortune.
While I don't know as much as many who have commented on this thread may know, I just cannot see how the cost of the original salvage, plus the second re-floating, and all the work done to this point makes any fiscal sense whatsoever. You can buy a lightly-used late model Viking for what it would have cost to bring this one back.
I think-and this is only my opinion-that NEMS severely underestimated what it would cost...and now that the owner is being barraged with bills on this FUBAR, he/she is re-thinking the arrangement and has decided to bail out. Not saying it's right...it surely sucks for NEMS...but that's how I believe this whole unfortunate situation has unfolded.

I'm sure there is more to the story…but you seem to have fully figured it all out oddly while thinking the rest of us are just glossing over the obvious.

Maybe you have. Maybe you have absolute inside info….or perhaps a vested interest. There is no doubt more to this story than meets the eye.

But another valid question: - is there more to your interest than meets the eye also?

You just reminded me of what the perfect name for this boat is. "BOHICA"

All of you familiar with military slang will have to agree with that!

This was a Viking 65 not 64 as previously thought when the thread was started. I still don't think 4000 gal leaked out.
