This is really helpful. Sailingdog's comment brings me to wonder about a boat I'm thinking to buy. It seems really inexpensive (less than $6K), so I wonder if I should go to the effort of paying to pull it out of the water to inspect everything below the waterline. I assume that would typically be on the prospective purchaser, assuming it would be a costly method, such as using a crane. At the moment, the boat is in the water, so I hope a "sea trial" would at least be allowed. I didn't know about escrow, but would it be applicable to such a relatively small purchase? Any thoughts?
