I would like to get my boat and my money back so i can hire someone to do the job properly. Or have him do the job properly.
Here is a copy of an email i sent to the boat yard
I was at the marina over the weekend to look at the progress of the paint job. Overall I am not satisfied with the job. There are a number of issues that need to be addressed. 1) The cracks are still visible2) the boat looks like it was painted with 2 different colors3) The non skid was sanded unevenly and in the places that it was repaired looks nothing like "new" as you told me it would.4) In several places the primer is still visible, i am not sure how after 3 coats of paint the primer can show through.4) Originally we agreed that the boat would be complete by April 15, its almost 3 months past that and we still don't have it in the water. that is more than 1/2 the season. I would really like to come to a resolution to this, in a reasonable manner.I am not looking to bicker, but would like to get what I am paying for. I have been very reasonable and understanding, so would like to hear from you on how do we can address my concerns quickly so I can use my boat again!
total repairs were 15K, value of boat about 60K.
I have already missed out on 1/2 of season plus about 3K to reserve my spot at marina.
1) Should i pay first then file suit, or file suit first.
2) Should suit be filed where i live or where the boat yard is?
I live in holland PA (bucks county)
Boat located in Chestertown, MD
thanks in advance.
