Suppose you do find its owners and they deny knowledge of the incident; where does that leave you?

    You have two obligations to your insurers:

    1. To disclose any material information affecting your insurance, eg your boat has been damaged.

    2. To file any claim promptly.

    Let the insurers deal with it. That's what you pay them for.

    Very good point, I have called them and submitted a claim. They're far better placed than me to deal with it as you say.
    Thanks for the advice all, hopefully it won't take too long to get sorted!

    I hope it all works out and you get your damage repaired.
    For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?

    Quick update, just in case anyone was interested.

    I'm now into the second month of paying yard storage fees waiting for quotes for repair from people who promise the earth but deliver nothing.
    The underwriters (Nav & Gen) have been extremely understanding, and helpful, and are trying to track down somebody who can actually provide an estimate.
    The skipper of the coaster is claiming that my boat drifted from its mooring, into his path then must have somehow drifted back to the mooring and tied itself back up afterwards.
    The battle, frustration and expense continues...

    If you are fully comp its down to your insurers to get the boat reinstated to condition prior to the incident

    Does their AIS history not show the route they took, ie too close past your boat?
