....someone bumped our boat again(*) whilst we were busy moving house over the past month. They must know they'd done it - the port midships stanchion was left leaning over at a crazy angle supported by the guard wire. The not insubstantial aluminium base had been completely shattered by the blow. The post is rough towards the base so presumably someones anchor is to blame.

An enjoyable weekend was a little tainted by the discovery - not so much that it was yet more damage but that someone in our marina hasn't the courage to own up.

So if you are out there please do the right thing and let the marina office know.

* it was our first trip since Temptress was repaired after a previous incident had seen the transom holed by another berth holder out of control in windy weather.

That's it. A total lack of manners, guts, consideration for others etc. Unfortunately it seems to becoming more common. Hope you find them and report them to the marina office. Also "name and shame" on here.

We don't get that many visitors (shame) and those that do visit this secret gem of a place are rarely sent to our end of the marina unless we aren't there!

If we are away or out of the water then our berth is a prime spot for visitors being a hammer head with room for a couple of 30+ footers

Look on the bright side. Since you moor in a marina any impact is likely to be with a similar sized boat moving fairly slowly.
We moor on the river and have seen entire trots of moorings sideswiped by a coaster taking a bend too wide and getting caught by the wind!

Have you tried looking at all your neighbours for a boat with matching damage? You may not be able to prove anything but some well directed questioning might bring forth an admission. Makes you mad doesn't it, especially when if the boot was on the other foot you would own up and probably worry about it for weeks. Hope you find the culprit.
