Gift Boat--Worth it?

find out what type of boat it is. then, if it''s a decent boat, you can have a surveyer look it over for a few hundred dollars, and tell you what it will need to make the passage. it''s down wind with following seas, so find some kid who''s been sailing since before he could walk, and who seems to be responsible (eg: who can give you phone numbers and letters of refrence from past deliveries, and then DO check them out.) and drop a couple hundred on him and a friend to have him bring it down for you.

(disclamer)
um... not that I would ever suggest paying someone who doesnt have a coast guard captains lisence. That would be illegal... I think.
