    You've convinced yourself that it didn't happen therefore any evidence to the contrary will be ignored. I bet you've got some interesting theories about what really happened during Apollo 11, and you know exactly who the second shooter on the grassy knoll was.
    Now that you and Steve have ended your spat whos boat was damaged? Im not sure if you have seen my post about being a local aswell and Ive heard nothing of damage. Was the damage reported to the harbour office or possibly the police?
    If an insurance claim is needed due to the damage then a police incident number is needed

    Other side of the river, probably the same two.

    I'm sure XR will be delighted to send you a flag if you are feeling left out.

    What are the statistics of a boat being damaged due to coming aboard a moored yacht from a tender or rib?

    To get a handle on it, let us assume I have come aboard from a tender or water-taxi about once per day (it's often more) and been on board about 60 days a year (this is a gross under-estimate) over 35 years, yet in all that time I have never caused any damage to the boat by so doing. That's 0 in 60 x 35 (= 1950) times. I suspect that nearly all on this forum will have similar (absence of) experience of damaging a yacht by coming aboard, so what is the actual likelihood?

    This would suggest that it's extremely surprising that damage was caused merely by putting a flag on-board a mere 250 boats So is the OP asserting deliberate sabotage, or maybe his boat is unusually fragile?

    BTW, I'm local as well (TR postcode, boat in the Fal) and I've not heard of any boats being damaged by XR.
