A look Inside Legal Action

Boaters Are Voters

Hi Dana Point Boater,

If you are wondering why legal actions seem to take a long time and cost loads of money, here’s a perspective you can expand with your thoughts. “Legal matters move at the speed of the legal process.”


To a non-boat owner, boating may appear to take a long time and cost a lot of money. However, boat owners understand the processes of operating, maintaining, and making repairs to their vessels. Funny enough, both viewpoints demonstrate the differences in understanding a process. And both require money.


An attorney’s work requires the use of writing and researching above all tasks. Writing in a certain way as prescribed by the legal community is time-consuming. Researching authorities to support what lawyers write also consumes time. All written work is not subject to public scrutiny. Consequently, a lawyer’s work can appear as if nothing is happening to outside observers. However, nothing could be further from the truth!


All slip renters in Dana Point Harbor are a part of the class action lawsuit. Tides raise all boats, and we rise and float with the forces in play. Dana Point Boaters Association is a force taking action for all boaters. We take our commitment to advocate, inform and help provide answers to your questions seriously.


We ask that you participate with us during the class action lawsuit. Your contributions are of tremendous value to the cause. Donate today! Attorney’s fees include more than paying for their time and expertise. One example of extraneous fees is court costs. Did you know that every deposition costs a minimum of $1,200.00 for the reporter, transcripts, and related services before the attorney fee?


To paraphrase Patrick Henry (1736 - 1799), “Now is the time for all good boaters to come to the aid of their marina.” Why? Because this is not the Partner’s marina. It isn’t even the County’s marina. It is the Public’s Marina. Let’s keep it that way!


Feel free to ask questions and continue to write to the county supervisors. Your words matter and your concerns are valid. Whether or not you receive a response does not mean your voice goes unheard. We live in an ocean of motion, and your contribution to the motion is important, appreciated, vital, and respected.


Thank you for your help, generosity, and courage to do what you enjoy doing.


Happy boating!
