I understand the Sale of Goods Act. It would also take a good lawyer to make some of it stand in court and would be expensive.

In the UK as I'm sure you are aware, it is a small industry. Most customers are friends of the dealers or at least on first names. Many are struggling. I would feel guilty about taking them to court and I'm sure many others would too. Taking the distributors to court would be expensive and take a lot of effort. Taking the manufacturers to court would be nearly impossible.

If a brand is that bad the customer will soon move to a different product. In a small industry such as windsurfing this is bad news and has seen a number of brands either change distributor or no longer exist in the UK. Just a few sales can be make or break for some brands.
