Just looked at the 27's on Yachtworld...my gut is that you are paying too much...unless the boat is in really great shape...

Have a couple of questions - how long did your surveyor spend at the boat ? At least two hours ? Did he check out the hull and deck with a little tap hammer ? What else did he do ? The reason I ask is that it seems a little unusual for a survey to come up that clean - ie, no moisture issues anywhere on a 30 year old boat sounds a bit unlikely...especially if the PO put in a VHF with a car speaker ... I would take that as an indication that he might not have been the most careful and conscientious in the maintnenance department...
