Re: Looking at a boat tomorrow

First, let me say that in my opinion there is no better gift for a new bride than an old sailboat. That is what I have been telling my wife for years.

Second, there are many reasons for people to sell a boat. Not all of them are because there are serious problems. They may just want to unload it fast. That being said, any contract contingent on a successful, quality survey is your best insurance against a lemon.
