Hi, I have a boat in the harbor and am being evicted because I am not a sailboat but a motor boat. I sublease from a sailing organization. Even though I have been there for over two years and no one has questioned before they are evicting me. They sent me an email which I believe is not a legal eviction. What are the laws on this? Is it like renting a home or does maritime law come into affect and how do I find out what the law is on water? Anywhere anyone could send me please advise.
Oh dear... I'm sorry you are in such a position. I'm afraid that IF the owner's association has a restriction on the type vessels they allow in their harbor and, your presence has been an oversight to the charter rules your eviction is legal. The person whom you subleased the slip from is the culprit here and that person is who you have issues with if indeed there is a written charter restricting motor vessels. Good luck... it might be possible too that you've offended some person(s) in the harbor and if you try to make good with them they might decide to overlook the charter and allow you to remain?
