I h ad this Lotus until the Auckland storm hit, and wrote it off. The hull was badly damaged and the quote for

repair was over $50 grand. It's a wooden boat and the hull was pulled off the stringers and keelson.

It was "repaired" by a bloke who bought it off the insurance company, in a week and has been sold on. I  have

been unable to determine who the new owner is.

I'm concerned that someone has bought it and doesn't know that the repairs have only been done on

one side, and the other, under the water tank and sink etc has not been done. I'd hate to think of someone out

in it in rough weather.

Yeah- I know its' "buyer beware" and that people should get a survey done, but sometimes it just doesn't happen.

If anyone knows of the new owner, and can get them to get in touch with me, I'd appreciate it, for safety's sake.

cheers

Agree that the public should know. Unfortunately I don't think they will because if the full story comes out it will show how much trademe cares, which is not much.

I might agree with you Lateral if it wasn't for the fact he has tried to flick several  boats in dubious condition. Knowingly trading in boats like that is not ok.

My mate just sold a Tasman 20 for $600 to this guy . It has a seized centreboard and no trailer .   Will be interesting to see what it’s re-listed for and what the trailer and centreboard repairs ar

Good on you for posting this. More info on the "repairer" would be good.

 

There's a guy I've been tracking on trademe who has multiple accounts and starts new ones when he gets found out as a crook. I've reported him to trademe but they don't care. His modus operandi is to buy old boats for peanuts, tizz them up a bit then sell them. They are still junk. He goes under different names including Jason and Rudolf.

hmmmm- interesting coincidence,, the guy who bought the boat off the insurance company was called Jason.

I believe he had another boat for sale a couple of weeks ago at Milford MArina if it is the same guy.

Was it a whiting 1/4 tonner ?

You mean the one that’s still for sale, as a Farr built in 1990, albeit for about Alf the original price?
