Re: Looked at the Ranger 26

A few questions:

Did you get an excited feeling when you saw the boat? Did it look pleasing to your eye?

Do you still feel like the price is "too good to be true"?

Did the boat look anything like the pictures in the ad? If not, what does this tell you about the trustworthiness of the seller?

How long has this boat been on the market? If the price is so good, why hasn't it sold already?

Do you want to go sailing right away, or spend weeks/months/years getting it into seaworthy shape first?

How much money are you willing to spend before you're willing to trust your life to this boat?

How much would you be willing to pay someone to take this boat away next year if you can't find anyone to buy it when you're done with it?
