I won't even ask you how it is possible that the broker's contract serves the buyer's interests...
I gotta ask, do you really believe that Sailnet members buying a boat should pull a contract off the internet which reflects someone's first time boat purchase?

I do believe that buyer and seller have common interest in completing a sale, and in a manner that explicitly protects the reasonable interest of both parties, which seems to be what YBAA tries to do.

A homemade contract that attempts to foist a warrantee on a selling individual will never lead to a sale unless the seller happens to be as unknowing as the buyer.
