This afternoon I rented a hobiecat and went sailing. The wind was off shore and gusty and I got into trouble getting back. The team was very helpful in sending out a boat to pick me up. The catamaran had capsized and it took them 45 mins to get it back upright. When they arrived back at shore they asked me to pay 200$ as the main sail had a tear. This surprised me as there was no tear when I was picked up and I had given 30$ for the effort of picking me up. I told them that I had no issue compensating for part of the damage but asked them to be honest about where and how the sail tore. First I was surprised to hear that the boats were not insured and as renter you are fully liable for any expenses / damages. Second I wasn't pleased by the fact that they were not honest. I paid the money and after asked for an honest explanation, after I waited and waited the owner wanted to come and explain. By that time I was fed up and told him that I would write my thoughts in a review. I can imagine margins are tight and after coming to Bali for 15 years I have seen this many times but still feel being honest is the way people should treat each other.
