tahnks for your responses, i am working on a couple of cash deals i just hate dealing with dealers, and prefer to deal with owners. the type of boat i am looking for for 6k wouldnt be in the water. its the one that sits out back untouched while everyone scratches thier head trying to figgure out what to do with it, or they ignore it alltogether. i have rebuilt 2 sailboats this way and the last one i lost in katrina. but rebuilding on land really bites.
sorry to bother ya'll if you arent intrested but i am a firm believer in its a free question, and how many of us would be sailors if we let the fear of being told no get in the way.
so with that i do thank you for your responses and will keep looking.....
