1. Dear *****, I would advise you to go to a different marina and get it fixed there. Essentially, if you are left waiting for six months, the level of quality and service leaves a lot to be desired. So, you should simply go somewhere else and get it fixed, paying whatever it costs. If the head gasket blowing is your own fault, you are going to have to pay for it anyway. So, go somewhere which will get it done in a matter of days. You have already waited much too long for this marina to do the repairs. Alternatively, you can simply pay the 1k and get it fixed. However, you should specify a time limit within which it should be done. Otherwise you will continue waiting indefinitely.

3. I regret to say there is no legal provision which allows you to withhold payment owing to late performance of work. However, I would suggest you negotiate a reduction, if you can. However, my guess is that this marina is waiting until you pay them some money to do the work, before they will do it. Taking the thing apart and leaving it there smacks that there is some difference of opinion which makes the marina reluctant to do the work. Otherwise, if there isn't and they are messing you around, you simply should get out of there as quickly as possible as another year might go bye with nothing happening. Pay the GBP 300 if necessary, but get out of there if they aren't doing the work. Someone is messing you around leaving you waiting this long.
