Re: Going to look at a boat

Insurance sounds about right. The overriding question should be whether or not this particular boat fits your boating goals. Is it too big, too small? Does it have the equipment you will need? Will it be safe sailing where you want to sail? Where will you keep it? Does the yearly cost of dockage, repairs, storage and normal upkeep fit your budget? Once you know what your plans of use are, you can decide if the boat fits those plans or if maybe another boat might be better. In this terrible market for sailboats in this terrible economy, there are LOTS of boats on the market for the right price.
