Long before I started reading Sailnet I new about the need for a survey. Certainly good advice. But the survey follows the offer. And one can't trust a survey commissioned by the broker.
So how does one guess what a boat is worth? Saying to offer "what it's worth to me" doesn't help. I have bought a small power boat and several small sailboats over the years. Now I'm looking at a J-37c and I don't have a clue what a proper offer is. I offered .85 of the asking price but no luck
Any help here would be appreciated.
