What I found with the help of many web sites and a little buying power...the asking price for my boat was 45k...and I eventually got it for 37k....from what I have seen with market values...it seems most are selling close to 10k below asking...so that will give you an idea of what you can afford. When the time comes...get a survey..unless the boat is low balled..then save the 1k that will cost. Transport is an issue too..depending on where you buy...and of course the dreaded sales tax...unless you document it...cheaper..but kind of a pain...still requires a recent survey..and a pile of paperwork. If you are leaving the country...documented is the way to go!
I'd point out that he has since bought a boat and is living aboard. His post, that you're responding to, is from August.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
