  1. It seems paperwork was promised when the boat was purchased and none of it has been forthcoming. Your advice has followed my own thoughts and whilst appearing quite unfair on the purchaser, she should have sought advice. I don't think she will take this any further, take it on the chin as a lessons learnt. It puts her in a difficult position if she wants to sell the boat, no RCD. She will probably have to wait until the boat is confirmed as 5 years old and get a BSC. Thank you for all your input.
  2. OK, I have asked some questions. The boat was purchased by a 'totally inexperienced about boats lady' last June from a broker. The boat was sold as being 3 years old, it turns out the boat is actually 4 years old. At the time of purchase no survey was carried out as she relied on the broker being honest and the fact the boat was only 3 years old!

I don't want to put in too much but also I don't want to not put in enough. Thanks
  9. Surely it depends what glue you use? I suggest you do it how you intended to do it before you asked your original question.

  11. so somebody managed to find some money to light this up!!
  12. We seem to have forgotten about the idiot party goers!! This guy couldn't have organised these events if people abided by the rules and said NO. I would guess there is very little chance of any of these fines being paid. What will happen in that event, a suspended sentence to somebody who doesn't care is no deterrent.
