i hate brokers

Anarchist 108 has a problem…

I bought a boat in January from Canada. I had in the contract, “delivery to the US”.  I get a bill from the delivery skipper. I told him the broker is responsible. The broker said that I was responsible for it so I showed him the purchase agreement that is signed by the seller and myself.

Broker offers to pay half. The delivery bill was over twice the original price because the broker didn’t know how to get a boat across the border and the delivery skipper had to turn back. So instead of one day it was two days and a week of moorage. I don’t want the delivery skipper to get screwed but I don’t want to get screwed either. I sent a message to the skipper explaining my position.

What else should I do? At least I got a cool boat.  Olson 911.
