Think you had a bad day at work???
Mark my words, this would happen to ME if I ever ordered a 3million dollar boat! :mad: I'd be waiting at the yard with my captains hat and champagne and the whole nine when BOOM..............

Good Afternoon Lloyds of London, Charles speaking How may I help you?
I dropped something and I think it broke (long pause)
Sir, I am unsure how this concerns us, sir?
I think that you carry the policy on the object.
Oh I see sir and what was it that you dropped?
A boat? You mean that it fell off of the trailer on the ramp?
No, a big boat and I mean that it fell..
Sir I don't think that I understand. How big of a boat sir?
78ft long sir? Is this correct?
How far did it drop?
Give or take a hundred feet
A 100ft sir?
Yeah a 100ft
Holy Sh.... I mean Sir, please hold the line......

I would hate to be the person who has to call the owner to tell him his boat has been reduced to a pile of fiberglass worth a few million dollars!

I hope the crane company had the "extra" insurance.... wow... so I guess the owner is going to have a delayed delivery date of his yatch.... Builder is laughing... cause they get paid regardless... time to make another multi-million dollar yatch... time to make another couple hundred g's profit.... heheheh
