I have a trip coming up real soon and the boat has been pulled due to mechanical issues. They have cancelled the 2 trips just prior to mine. No need to mention the boat as it'll only result in the thread being locked.

The landing has said they think it'll be back online for our trip, but they've also told another passenger it could be docked for up to a month. They said when they have word, they'll call. My worry would be having less than 48 hours notice as I'm rolling from out of state. I'm not pissed or anything. These things happen.

My question is if anyone knows if a landing will refund before the trip is "officially" scrapped. There's very few options with open spots and the clock is ticking and I'd like to jump on another boat if they'll release.

Thanks.

    call them now with your concerns and see what their response is. See what they will work out for you since you are out of state.

    thats for you to call, not for people on a forum to tell you. you could have called the landing and got an answer faster than you could have posted on here. No matter what anyone says they have no say when said and done, call them and get it worked out.

    There's the rub. I asked, the guy on the phone said he didn't know and was busy at the moment and wanted me to call back later. Figured I'd check here in the interim. Gonna call again around noon.

    call and ask him them to transfer your deposit to your next choice of boat(as long as there are openings from that landing) so that you are now confirmed on the new trip...if the boat gets fixed in time, you can switch back on to it...but at least you will have a confirmed trip on the books...specify you are not asking for a refund, merely confirmation of space on a trip whose status is not questionable. Good luck, whichever boat you ride

    We called the landing and asked the same question, there response was" we will not refund the money until the trip is officially cancelled".
