    Don't worry, that's about par for the forum. Nothing is wasted... Just time spent.

    I'm Happy to report that we are now back on berth!

    Thank you to all the posters who provided me with insights into how this process can/has worked for them in the past, and for really setting some ground rules for what can be a lengthy and intricate process for those that are new to it.

    For those that questioned the validity and on/off topic overflow of information that I put up online, I can only apologise for oversharing, which was all meant to provide as much context as possible.

    As someone with a full time travel-heavy job, and several part time engagements, this has been a real time drain that I have had to bear on my own, and with no real connections to the boating community down south, it has been a real echo-chamber of worry, doubt and constant on-the-go learning. (I think our move to a new marina will do wonders for that side of things!)

    The real takeaway for me is to get my questions up much sooner in a process like this, as this forum is a real goldmine of information and those willing to provide their perspective and even assistance.

    Thank you all!!

    If I could try to sum up fair contribution using the car tyre analogy:

    New tyres fitted Saturday were slashed Sunday. Insurer pays full cost.

    Tyres with 2mm of tread left (8mm new, 1.6mm legal limit, 2-3mm recommended change time). Anything insurance contributes is a bonus but essentially you were due to change them. Maybe not now but in the foreseeable future.

    Choose your battles in life and always try to stand on the other person's side of the fence before digging your heels in.

    Looking at your logo Henry it is a wonder you have 2mm left!
