That takes me back to the days I worked at a hirefleet!! We would sometimes get a boat back like that and it would take one person about 5/6 hours to get it looking vaguely respectable. Often a proper cosmetic repair would have to wait until the boat was off hire or the end of the season.
Do you know how it happened?
nah it was on Royall's website but from the look of the damage i would say it was done mooring up going in bow first a little to fast.
from Royall's online blog
Royall Satin came back early to have a repair done on her front toe rail as unfortunately whilst mooring in Oulton Broad Yacht Station the skipper inadvertently went ahead instead of astern and hit a private boat nearby. This was soon repaired by our resident GRP expert Steve
also there site here
Ouch, any news on the private boat ?????????
nope dint say anything about that maybe dropping them an email might find out
Knowing just how hard that bit of the boat is.
I bet there is a much worse mess on the private boat
Hope Royalls do the right thing.
In all the years of owning I have only ever been hit hard enough to sustain damage once and the owners were Horizon Craft (Owned by Richos) and they did the repair at my own moorings with no questions asked.
Anyone else had experience good or bad of this type of thing?
