I bought a load of quality boat bits at a Boat Jumble off a bloke who wiped his boat out near the Cadnam turn-off not far from Rownhams. I forget what make it was but it was similar to an Arvor, maybe 20ft. Apparently, a caravan started snaking in front of him and he plowed into the back of it and lost his boat and his L200.

I can confirm that it wasn't an Arvor 25, but an Jeanneau Merry Fisher 655 "Cruising" on her way from her old home on the Hamble to her new one in Liverpool.

The haulier, apparently, had to brake so hard that the trailer jack knifed to the point of actually riding up the inside of his rear wheelarch. It then flipped on it's side.

I feel sorry for the owner and hope the haulier has good insurance.

Another possible sale for you then Tom. Will you be sending a letter of condolence to the owner, with a Price List:unsure: :)

I actually sold the boat originally this time last year. The owner had upgraded to a larger boat (from me :) .
This was on her delivery to her latest owner after being sold by our broker at our Hamble office. I am sure the insurance will sort it our, but what a shame :schmoll:

I feel very sorry for the owner and I feel sure that our broker will do her very best to help the owner.

A bit of filler and it will be back to new......

Where will this boat end up when it is released by the insurers?

Sorry Ian

No more pics as I believe they are for the insurance companies use only.

I don't want to rub anymore salt into the owners wounds either.

if i send you my address can you arrange to drop one of "gently"....i'll get the crash mats ready in anticipation.

on serious note...horrible thing to happen but good on you for being open and sorting the problem out...nothing better than dealing with people who "own the problem"

To be honest John it has nothing to do with me, but we all have that macabre fascination with someone else's misfortune.
My only connection is I sold the boat to the original owner a year ago.

Just feel sorry for the poor guy who now has to wait for the hauliers insurance to sort it out.

If that happened when the guy braked I'd be looking for another haulier. Anyone worth using has ABS on the trailers these days and they don't jacknife under braking.

That photo is a good avert for the build quality. I saw a pic recenty of a sunseeker that had been dropped by a crane in Florida - it was matchwood! That Merry fisher didn't even lose the patio doors!!!
