LA BELLE AURORE
UNFORTUNATELY, every now and again a business gets stuck when we allow an owner to remove a boat before the final charges have been paid. This has happened to us twice in the past several years. We repeatedly asked, nicely, that these two boat owners pay their bills. One has, the other has not not. The substance of the bills were not questioned or contested in any way.
As a favor to our colleagues in the marine business we will list the names and address (office, boat names and details) of these individuals to serve as a warning that these individuals have seen fit to run out on their obligations.
La Belle Aurore skipped out of Rumery's with an unpaid yard bill. Owner John Mate has ignored our requests for payment. He has not disputed the substance of the invoice, after all, we performed the tasks he requested.
M. John Mate was at the time a partner in the law firm of Cox and Palmer in
St. John's, Newfoundland.

Mr. Mate has not responded to our many communications. Beware if he becomes your client.

Belle Aurore, built by Robert Reid, underwent extensive restoration
at Rumery's. She was partially reframed and a substantial number
of planks were replaced. She received new teak decks and numerous
systems were replaced and upgraded. She is really a gem.
