are you gonna be able to sea test the boat? Are you close enough to spend some time with this boat, more that just a few hours? Last fall i found a boat i've always liked that i could afford (Vagabond 47).... it was love at first sight, i saw her at the dock and had visions of topless girls in bora bora , winning the newport to bermuda.... on a V47, yea right.... anyway i got all swept away. the broker let me spend the week-end on the boat at the dock and i came to understand why i could afford this boat... she was great tied to the dock but i could not afford to make her sea worthy. at first i thought i can fix this, and this, and this, and this, ect... my point is if i had not spent time with the old girl her price and sexy lines would have sucked me in before i realized she wasn't right for me. good luck and keep us informed......
