local boat buying assistance experiences

My boat buying assistance list has been up for over a year now.
We're at 4 pages of members. That is a lot of good offers for help.
Thanks all for volunteering.
How about some stories??

I took advantage of 2 members, PBZEER & T34C. Both took a first look at boats for me. Both were very helpful.
T34C looked at a boat that I was very interested in. But I couldn't get the price down enough to get further involved. But it was worth it to know the boat was a good candidate before I started talking seriously to the broker.
PB looked at a boat and reported it might have soft decks. I paid a very small sum for a surveyor to do a quick looksee and confirmed PB's findings. Saved me the cost of plane fare to go there.

Thanks a bunch to both of you!

How about you?
Anybody shopping for boats??
