Top Hatt (2016)

LOCATION: British Columbia

Case number: 120-690

On May 6, 2016, the Fund received an email from Fraser Pacific Marine Services (FPMS) with an attached invoice in the amount of $92,829.45. The Fund advised FPMS that the invoice did not constitute a claim and provided them with a copy of the “Claims Manual” in the event that they wished to file a claim.

Coast Guard was on-scene and advised that FPMS were contracted by the vessel owner to lighten the vessel and that the vessel was stored in their boat house when it sank.

On February 21, 2017, the Fund contacted FPMS seeking the status of his May 2016 inquiry. The file remains open.
