Re: Please tell me this is a nutty idea so I will stop looking at this boat.
Thanks everyone for all the advice!
One more question - the most frequent advice I hear for first-time buyers to find a used boat in as nice as condition as you can in your price range. But what's a good strategy for locating these boats? I'm looking at all the online listings, but it can be tough to tell anything from the picture other than how clean they kept their boat. And there's a lot of boats that look like they have sat on the hard for a while - bad sign? What are the good signs to help me winnow down to the boats worth spending my Saturday out checking them out?
