No luck!!!

Well, the survey was today, and we didn't even get through it before we called it off and walked away from the deal. Blisters covered the entire bottom of the boat, even the keel. My surveyor said it would need a full peel, at least two layers of laminate deep--nothing you can "spot" fix. So we walked. It seems like we can't catch a break! We don't believe the listing broker knew about the blisters (just based on his reaction), though I don't know if the sellers did or did not (no evidence either way).

I guess the good news is that because we did a survey (as we should), we found this out in the process and can walk away. Still a big bummer though.

SOOOOOO, back to the drawing board again, looking for a boat...
