Question- was the boat covered before the mechanic removed the battery? Did he fail to put the boat cover back on? Why wasn't the battery replaced quickly? Was battery replacement on you or them?
If the boat wasn't covered, I can see that it might be on them to cover damages, but I think you might be hard-pressed to get them to admit to it. FWIW, and hindsight being 20/20 and all, but a battery really isn't that hard to replace. I'm not sure that's something I'd pay a mechanic to do when it's really a 10 minute job.

I think being flung by a trebuchet in a siege re-enactment would be a good idea. Preferably, the object of the seige will be made from masonry.

Always a good option. I was just trying to stay within the marine theme, all things considered.
