Do you have written terms and conditions with the Marina? If so do those terms and conditions mention this right?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have no written ts & cs however the marina manager says by mooring there I am implicitly complying. What do you think?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have just spoken to the marina and they say their ts & cs include holding the boat - I have yet to see these. They say they are taking me to court on Monday. I made an offer of paying £500 and the balance at the end of July. Any advice before I visit them on Monday?
