    Yes I agree with You, but You have started this thread with accusations!

    Now once we all know the truth, why don't You say 'sorry, I was wrong'? Why don't You just close this thread?

    Propshaft, it wasn't an accusation I started with, it was an inference...

    ... asked Junior Member with 9 posts! :D

    So, do You agree that Your 'inference' was wrong? That there is no proof that the accident is builder's fault?

    I repeat for your benefit -

    Just for the record, I'm not a client nor do I know any. I do have a feeling that a certain builder's been posting though...
    As for half the forum? Who knows? Only time will tell.

    people

    we do not know the facts

    all we have is some photos. We do not have other independent sources of information. We do not have a builders survey in public domain to my knowledge.

    I am not saying that the builder is free of responsibility. All I am saying is that looking at the photos it seems it was that the lashings failed. Everything else is just assumption. You cannot lay fault with one person or another without being fully informed. Since we have limited information we cannot make conclusions.

    There is another blog going around with a builder that took his tiki to NZ to have it finished because he had concerns. So I do not the truth. too hard to make conclusions, there is no point in so much speculation with so little hard information.
