captain tim is on a distinguished road
if you plan to travel with her, does she suit the cruising areas you want to go. For example, don't consider a blue-water boat for the Chesapeake or a
Weekender for off-shore passages. This may sound stupid but too many new-comers but the wrong boat for the wrong reasons!

your boat should be like a good pair of shoes, comfortable and made to last. If you are doing business with a private party ask them why they are selling the boat. Are the trading up for a larger boat, if so why?

avoid buying to big of a boat. the smaller "pocket-cruisers" seems to get the most use from their owners!

Good Luck,
