Really just wanted to hear your opinions and maybe prevent this from happening to someone else who expected more and may have been mislead.

You are trying to make the marina the culprit? Seriously?

"The lines were properly tied and adjusted before I left the boat."

Then how did it get loose?? Maybe double check, add spring lines if "it also was a full moon and the tide was super low and there were super high winds. Gale force warning."

I don't see why it is anyone else's fault. Sorry.

Don't be an a-hole. The guy was told his boat would be looked after and somebody dropped the ball. Believe it or not when I used to help run a dry storage I would run watch about every turdy and make sure that didn't happen. I don't see why its unreasonable that if the guy was paying the duckies he shouldn't expect the service. I repeat, SERIOUS WEATHER would get MORE ATTENTION. Even in BFE south MS.

Kinda hard on him aren't you? Where I come from if you're paying commercial dockage fees, and unfavorable weather conditions are f/c, then that "high end full service marina" may not have legal liability but they certainly have built up expectations that you can expect them to look after your boat. Bottom line is that they didn't perform up to expectations!!!!! Whats your point??

I can TELL you anything you want to hear. Unless it is in writing then you lose.

Did the OP call the marina to make sure his boat was being watched during this storm?

I am tired of hearing and reading about folks trying to pass the blame to others and not taking personal responsibility for their lack of action.

Your never going to get a penny out of the marina. Yes they were supposed to watch your boat but its not there fault if a line comes undone and your boat gets banged up.

i keep my boat at a full service marina and the docks are checked by marina personnel all the time. when ever an impending storm approaches emails are sent out reminding to check the lines. you also have to have braided lines available on your boat for the marina to add in case you cant get to the boat. if you forget you will be buying new lines from the marina but your boat will be secured. before irene hit i secured my boat and left 4 extra lines in the boat. they used 1 of them and called me to let me know the were lowering my outboards until the storm passed.its a piece of mind knowing they are looking out. ill be back there next year and already paid for my slip because i know what to expect

Internet tough guy crying over his scratched boat..Waahaaa

You knew the forcast, yet you CHOSE not to be proactive and check on it. You CHOSE to leave it up to the marina, who has how many over boats,docks,yard equpment to take of first. You were only an hour away, so by not going down and checking on things(and doubling up on the lines) your boat is damaged.

As far as the dockmaster, thats just the old guy that works there year round, he can splice a line, tell you a sea story, hes there when you need help tying up at the gas dock. If hes really good, he might even be able to tell ya how to cook the catch of the day, how to read the clouds to read the weather, or where to get that fancy boat soap you've been looking for. BUT he doesnt have super powers, and he is not responcible for your boat. Read your contract. Again.

Man up, call your insurance, and be done with it. You are insured, right?

If you ever want to donate that old boat you have I could probabely take it off your hands before it sinks.

X2.. I think he has made some useful posts in the past but this time someone must have crapped in his cereal. Bet hes lots of fun at a party.

Obviously osudaddy and Clear solution belong to the same "yachting club" . Niether have any comprehension of what you can expect from a "high end" marina, and both are above anyone other than you having any responsibility. Spoon fed maybe? Just glad that we have niether at our marina.

Just noticed that one of these have a record of making over 3 posts per day. He has to be an xpurt...

Past time for this dude to get out of boating. He must have got his boat thru an inheirentence, as he certainly knows nothing about boating or the maritime laws. Its easy to be a blow hard.. well, yep.
