O.K., guys, I'm new here and seriously considering upgrading from a C-25 to a C-270 (my dream boat). She's a '94, wing keel, LE model that's only had one owner and has been neglected a bit. The boat is 6 hours away from me, so I can only go by what the broker tells me and what I see in pics. The broker categorized the boat as being in 'good' condition. The engine has 109 hours on it. "Original sails with very low use". Bimini, portable A/C, cushions, etc are all included. It doesn't have a trailer, but I think I've found one that will do the trick. Any red flags going up so far? I presume I should get a survey of the boat but how do I go about arranging that? How much will it cost and do I make an offer contingent upon the results of the survey or what wording should I use? Your help and suggestions are most appreciated.
