Lindsay v. Spiller

In Ship Building and Repair on (Updated )

This was a dispute over the repair of a motor yacht. The repairer claimed for repair costs, storage and other costs. The boat owner alleged that some of the work and expenses were incurred without his authority and that other amounts were not properly itemized and were not reasonable. The Court extensively reviewed the evidence and agreed, in part, with the boat owner that some charges were not authorized and others were not properly itemized or reasonable. In result, however, the repairer did recover a substantial portion of his claim.
