No connection what so ever, that i can guarantee.
The first time i saw his screen name (NEMS) i thought that someone was trying to be me It's funny, because this is how i engrave (NEM) most of my boating stuff that tend to"fly" off the boat or the dock. Anyway, back to this now, who is the Greek guy? Is he the owner?
And i really feel for NEMS about all this happening to him.

Youth or inexperience.
There are all sorts of things about this delivery that are wrong.
Rule # 1) Signed Indemnity agreement, don't leave home (port) without it.
Rule # 2) Never, ever, use your own money. Ever, not unless you expect to lose it.

No one ever expects to lose money. Hindsight is a beautiful thing.

You obviously haven't delivered boats enough-----.
And particularly this deal, it had C-------- F--- all over it from the beginning.

I agree with what you are saying but not every situation is the same. Have you ever seen anything like this before? Its not your standard delivery. There is a lot more variables in this one. I'm sure NEMS was looking at the finished product, there would have been a lot of money in this for him if it went to the end.

Let me just say, wealthy people do not part with their money easily, they did not get that way by being stupid.
Take a young guy, dangle a carrot at the end of the trip, promises, etc.
Prey on his naivety and poof, a CF.

I say again.

This unfortunately is going to be a very painful expensive learning experience for NEMS.

They also did not get there without taking risks.Either way it's a sad situation for NEMS, hopefully he can get it all behind him and move on to the next one. A lot of blood sweat tears would have gone into this.

Brokers and even production manufacturers used to have regulars that would fly everywhere without a single signed agreement, and this was long before brokers were so regulated either. Yacht owners worked one on one with them and rarely if ever anyone would be stiffed.
Very well understood. I was one of them.
The new breed of owner, broker was the reason for my hastened exit from the yatch delivery bizness.

There's an entire new breed of owner, customer, provider, broker, worker in almost every industry…not just the marine trades. There's a reason societies generally last just a few hundred years…….before things unravel…..

Were you under some type of contract to deliver the vessel for repairs?

If so, unfortunately, it sounds as if the captain could potentially be held accountable for crewing a non seaworthy vessel (pecuniary liability) . I can virtually guarantee you that this boat was uninsurable in its current state so either you or whomever captained her may also be held liable for whatever environmental damages, cleanup cost, or emergency response charges resulted due to her 2nd sinking.


By knowingly operating the vessel without a suitable bilge and high water alarm the captain assumed responsibility when he took charge of the vessel and now could even be required to repay the owner for additional vessel damages.

To make things worse, the owner asked you to install the recommended equipment, yes at your cost, but they did request it.

I hope I'm wrong but from what I have read it looks bad for you
.


This sounds like how it might play out, too bad for NEMS. Then again, there is a history of bad luck here and there could always be a ....TRIPLE DOWN.

WOW...All that works for nothing....so sad NEMS...

I dont blame the captain, does not matter which captains was at the post...The owners give the go ahead to repair and prepare the Vicking for the thip down south...and after all that perseverance and the good job that was done to bring it to south...

The owner just give them the s.....,

Get what ever you can Nems...

Obviously, he really needed the job. So he took the risk. Yes, very painful learning experience
