Re: Challenger Boat Just Too big For The Broads

Interesting point which another boat raised recently. If hirers were made aware that they are responsible for damage and won't be covered by a collision damage waiver/buffer, then they will still enjoy their holiday which is what they should be doing and also they will be aware that they will have t...
