Arrr yes I know that guy. Once called him a friend. Once. I made the SST rails for his boat. But I got screwed by him.
His Boat had many problems. It's an old "Ship Builders" design and was getting very tired. I feel sorry for the people that bought the boat and are now without it. Surely He must have known something about it going to be seized. Surely the Court wouldn't take a Boat that had already been sold. Normally a Boat is Bonded, so he should not have been able to sell it (without breaking laws) while it was under bond and till after the Court ruling.
Oh yeah, the berth this side of his used to be mine.
Wheels do you know what bonded means.
Bonded does not mean they have taken procession.
Bonded meaning is that you post a amount to a prescribed figure that is decided by the court or similar to cruising vessel like Tahiti.
They zap a open signed credit card and that doesn't get process until it needs to be honoured supposedly as collateral. No prosecution and credit card transaction is stamped with a cancelled stamp. Conviction or payment require the open bill of exchange is activated / processed. If ISF then I guess they would go for the boat. Caveat Emptor Let the buyer beware.
let the buyer beware: the principle that the seller of a product cannot be held responsible for its quality unless it is guaranteed in a warranty.
The axiom or principle in commerce that the buyer alone is responsible for assessing the quality of a purchase before buying.
(Law) the principle that the buyer must bear the risk for the quality of goods purchased unless they are covered by the seller's warranty
A Latin phrase meaning let the buyer beware, used to mean the idea that a buyer must not assume that the quality of a purchase is guaranteed .
Commercial principle that without a warranty the buyer takes upon himself the risk of quality
Latin for “Let the buyer beware.” It means that a customer should be cautious and alert to the possibility of being cheated: “Caveat emptor is the first rule of buying a used car.”
Regarding the sentence.
Correct sentence and wheels I would have thought you would have been yelling whip pee for this. Not only where they undersize but the boat had over the allowable limit scallops on board. Scallops are fussy where they propagate and are being over fished. Dredging also damage untaken stocks and spreads disease amongst the bed. Commercial vessel trawling / dredging within the Marlborough sounds boundaries should be banned.
The sounds, you have been complaining the loudest re visitor numbers drop, decline, since the regulations restrictions for recreational fishers where altered re Cod only from memory but could be wrong.
Scallops and snapper and all the wild fish stocks are very important to all the SOUNDS operators who are trying to survive / make a living during a declining visitors numbers game. Scallops are a treasured commodity for all the Marlborough sounds and the NZ fisheries are trying their best and obviously listened to your screaming blood murder and unfair criticism of them. Fishing recreation for the recreational fisher is diminishing / being eroded each year as the fish gatherers increase and the fish resource diminishes. No warning should be given. Most know the fishing rules and penalties so why give them a warning. This judgment all NZ's should be congratulating the Judge. People for years have been crying for harsher penalties and when they are given we get some people saying that's a bit harsh.
The person that bought the boat and was unaware if your information is correct needs a lawyer to recover with full costs for his loss.
Did he the seller if the boat was sold, frauduately sell the boat knowingly that he was going to get a heavy fine or as some are here saying expecting and first time warning small fine that he could afford and bad boy verbalisation from the judge. So did he commit a crime?
Fishing regulations breaches should be enforced more rigorously with no warnings and harsher penalties even for the non speak English citizens that fish the Auckland fishing areas from land with casting rods . Plenty mumjo talk when they are catching undersize fish but watch their reactions when a person appears wearing a three piece suit or wearing collar and tie even when they are spotted approaching from a distance.
Perhaps the boat was not bonded. It should have been impounded like Commercial foreign vessels are when they breach our fishing regs. and prosecution / charges are pending. Then people would not get stung. Did he buy the boat through a ship broker or did the buyer cheap skate and by pass local professional selling / buying services with protection for his investment?
