10 horses for 8000lbs? That's very green.
I know I am not getting a 2 bedroom apartament that floats for my budget (around 4000$). But something that 3-4 ppl can live on it, for maybe a week, with out killing eachother....lol
I don't quite know what any sail boat is worth. Whatever I will pay for it now I got to add another 1000$ for winter storage....so a good deal for me would be a boat 2000$ below its value to leave some cash or any repair/mantanance it might need, to make it worth bying now.
The most important question....its worth bying now or wait till spring???
