I have a client who refuses to pay for hull cleaning services that we have already provided. Typically in this situation I send a "Letter of Demand" threatening small claims court and/or a mechanic's lien and usually this is enough to motivate the client to pay. Not so in this case. Never having actually filed a lien on a vessel before and finding confusing/conflicting information about the process online, I thought I'd ask here if any of you legends have experience with it in California (or more specifically, in Alameda County) and can enlighten me on how to go about it. Thanks.
