Hello, my name is Tony and I can assist with this.
Can I just clarify please - you have sent the boat to a yard, with dimensions and instructions of work you want doing, but the drawings are slightly out and as a result, it causes the aesthetics to look wrong on the boat?
Your question is whether the board yard can be responsible for this?
The drawings are correct, but the work that has been done is not and does not represent what is on the drawings.
If you like i can send you the 2 main emails i have written to the boat yard and the drawing which goes with them
If the work has not been carried out in accordance with your instructions, which would form the basis of the contract, then you would be able to argue that they are in breach of contract.
This means that they would be obliged to either put it right, or for you to instruct third parties to put it right at their expense.
Thanks for the offer of the emails and drawings, but I don't think they will help with the principles.
Are they going to propose a solution for you?
they haven't yet, and i have given them 2 weeks so far.
Two weeks is a fair period.
If they fail, then I think you're entitled to go to somebody else and get some proposals, and if necessary, get them to do the works then insist on the boat company meeting that expense for you. After all, they are the ones that failed to do the works properly. However, what you need to be clear about is that their terms and conditions do not exclude liability for this type of thing, and even if they do, it is arguable that such a clause would be ineffective anyway.
Does this help?
Thank you. Could I ask you to rate the answer for me please? Thanks.
Is there anything more I can address for you about this that I haven't already?
