Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Hit by another boat...

Dear John,

Thanks for your email and remaining active on the forum! I really appreciate the time you took to reply.
I also think it needs to be replaced.
The owner also said he would pay for it directly.
Will keep in mind going a size larger if metric not available in Nassau.

Talked to my insurance (DeLassee) here is the answer:
they first need information on the 3rd party.
Then an estimate from a reputable repair shop.
then they will decide whether or not to send an expert.
Then, should the 3rd party decide to pay directly for the damages instead of using their insurance, the claim will be closed.

I ask Amel for a reputable repair shop in nassau, no reply yet.

Thanks again for your help!!!
Sincerely, Alexandre

The same thing happened to us in Panama.
We were on a mooring at the yacht club next to the channel
going into the locks. We were down below and I thought a
ship had hit us. Turns out, a big ketch got caught in the 3
knot current and smashed into us. It also bent the furler
around as its attached to the pulpit by the 2 lines. The
entire pulpit had to be replaced. There was no other damage
but it sure looked bad. It wasn't easy getting a new
pulpit built and we were lucky that the fellow that hit us
told the welding shop to just get it done and he would pay
for it. All new wiring and lights. They couldn't match
the Amel metric tubing so we went with the next size. I
agree with Joel. Get a good surveyor if possible. If not, I
think you will be alright. Like the old watch add used to
say, Amels take a licking, and keep on ticking...John ex SM

Subject: [Amel Yacht
Owners] Hit by another boat...
















 











Dear Amel Owners,



This morning 9.30 was hit by another boat:

Felt like a pretty violent impact.

Bow Pulpit bent

Port navigation light (possibly electric wire cut in the
stanchion or just broken bulb)

My main concern is possible damages to the connection of the
forestay and electric unfurling/furling motor (which was
bent 40 degree).



I posted some pictures on:

http://nikimat.com/accident.html



Owner was very sorry and came back to apologize, very nice
person.



First time for me to have a boating accident.

Have no idea how to handle this, what to look for.

Would hate to miss a damage then later have problems.

So any advice is welcome!



This is actually the 3rd time in 5 week that a boat hit me
at this marina.



On the bright side, yesterday installed new Dolphin 40 Amp
Battery Charger and new Engine room Blower, both work
perfectly!



Thanks in advance for your help...



Sincerely Alexandre
