The contract would have to provide for attorney's fees. Read and see if there is a dispute clause with fees.

Oh.....my......god.....

I would be furious..... as I'm sure you are.

I know all about shady transport guys. Both of my drives were stolen the first time I tried to get the boat delivered.

Here is the number to my new transport guy. (305) 345-6174, his name is Milton. He transports for LipShip, Cigarette, NorTech customers, etc. He has excellent trailers, trucks and a great staff.

I hope you stick it to those b-stards.

Neill Has already put me in contact with Milton. I was trying to prevent damage by going on a semi/flatbed.

Sorry to hear about the damages to your new boat.'

I cannot give legal advise but I do receive several boats a year and here is the procedure when things are damaged in shipping.

1. Lots of pictures of the boat on the truck with all damages shown.
2. Carefully list all damages to boat on the BOL (bill of lading) and have driver sign off on each listing
3. You have the right to refuse delivery if boat is damaged. It must then be brought back to the origination point at the carriers expense.
4. This only applies to certified, Licensed and insured marine carriers. NOT GYPSY HAULERS
5. PAY by certified check or cash when boat arrives not up front

Unfortunately you have a battle on your hands proving all this after you have paid the carrier and accepted delivery and unloaded the boat. In the past I have gone through the carriers insurance company which takes some time but they do pay up. Getting an attorney involved NOW is an added push toward getting things resolved quickly.

It would also be faster to find a local service to repair the boat....by the time it gets shipped back....they work in the repair to a busy schedule .... and the the boat gets shipped back to you , precious boating time will be lost.
