From reading my first question do you think I have any hope of being successful if I take the seller to small claims court?
The boat has a mechanical fault. Quoted by an authorised engineer in needing either a £3600 rebuild or £5500 new engine. the boat was bought by me for £4600
They told me the engine was full of sea water, suggested a possible crack in either the exhaust manifold or head gasket. 2 valves had lost compression and many seals had been ruined. the propeller drive (stern drive) was also discovered to have been flooded and needing £700 worth of repair.
Doe's knowing exactly what was wrong with the boat help you advise me to wether I would be likely to win any compensation or refund in a claims court?
Bot***** *****ne is the boat broke within an hour the day after I bought it which I can likely prove via the harbour master. Reducing the value from £4600 to £1000 if I'm lucky.
Is there anything that could help my case ie: a report from the engineer describing his findings and the state of the engine? or if i could get proof from the harbour master that I was out on that day and having mechanical problems? or the log from my phone showing the time line of events on the day I broke down showing my texts to the seller and calls made to the engineers/boat yards?
