    Sad to hear of your bad fortunes. Great repair though. Looks like new.
    I have two dogs and the only person they bite is me. Only in friendly playful mode though. If a dog bites it is always the owner who is at fault.

    No lawyers for this American! My neighbors dog bit me twice (on my property in front of my house) about two years apart. Another person was bitten in between. Like American baseball, three strikes and you are out (read R.I.P.) in this county. We have had a number of dogs and they never bit anyone.

    Anyway, good to see that your boat is repairable.

    UK here. Had the lovely tetanus jab earlier. Still no update from the police though most likely here back tomorrow. I'll be keeping an eye out more now when at the boat pond. It's such a quiet yet popular place that you never think to look over you're back.

    I hope tomorrow's re maiden is far better with the rebuilt vessel. One of my prop shafts had bent slightly so have had to replace that and my receiver had a small crack in it though have range tested and all is well. Hull I don't know how it survived as being a Revell kit the plastic is thin though just a few scrapes that I've managed to sand down slightly.

    All in all things could have been far worse for both myself and my boat. Was a bit heartbroken as minus some photography building my boats is a big part of life and with health problems just now getting to the pond is a special occasion and one I look forward too when I've enough oomph to get out the door.

    Roll on tomorrow and I'm hopefully I will have many nice photos of her finally at ease ๐Ÿ›ฅ๏ธ

    You are in the UK so unlikely to sue, thats very much an American thing. If you were dealing with a Canadian he wud apologize (thats a Canadian thing, we apologize for everything even when its not our fault)& his house insurance wud cover your GoPro loss+your "toy". Our provincial insurance wud cover your medical, & if he was a typical Canadian gent you wud be offered something for your "pain & suffering". Yes,get a tetanus booster & the police shud insist upon veterinary certification of the dog's rabies vaccination. Your doctor may advise you to be treated for rabies exposure anyway, its a terrible way to die...there is no treatment for it to save you. In Canada the dog wud be immediately quarantined..... for observation.

    Where are you located? In the US, your damages from the bite and to your ship would be covered in a Small Claims Court case, no attorney required.

    The dog owner is strictly liable for all damages arising from the dogs conduct, which would include getting a new kit for replacement parts.
    So many ships . . . and so little time . . .

    What a bloody shame. I feel for you. It was a real nice boat and I'm sure it will be again after the repairs.
    Make sure you get a Tetanus shot if you have not had one recently and make sure the dog has had its rabies shot. Len1

    Dog lover and owner of one here too. The park that our pond is in has a lead only policy though you get the type who just don't want to abide by that and the can of lager in his hand at 9am suggested he wasnt fussed about much. It's time to give her a small varnish prior to returning to the pond tomorrow morning and I'm praying the pond isn't frozen over as it's meant to be minus 8 tonight โ„๏ธ. I'm hopeful I'll have some nice photos tomorrow to upload.

    Thank you all for the kind words in regards to the boat and also hospital. Just a small op thankfully though one I've been readily waiting for and should allow me to eat better again ๐Ÿ˜‹.

    Happy sailing everyone

    The Dog's owner should look like the boat.
    I don't know how many times I have head "He does'nt usually do that."
    The owners are at fault and should be held accountable.
    Just my two cents.
