Customer Question

I bought a sailboat from a guy 6 years ago
basically he financed the boat with a down
payment - we agreed to his price 78,000
paid several payment to keep the boat from getting repo
give him the down payment and have been making the payments
since
I was notified yesterday he took procession of the boat
due to me not paying the 2015 taxes - yes i am behind on the
taxes for this year - but everything else is current
When i do the math the boat was paid off in may of 2015
what can i do - just walk away from 80,000 dollar investment?

The balance is currentI want to file a claim on the boat with the US Coast Guard to prevent this guy from
screwing me out of my boat and moneyThere was no notice - he had a capt come in and take the boat yesterday
with my personal belongings and 15,000.00 worth of gear. It seems he has stolen
my personal property

You may do so. You may also consider a police report. Consider also a lawyer demand letter and filing a civil lawsuit seeking damages and an injunction plus award of costs and legal fees. martindale.com is a good resource.
