I just bought a 30' 1978 Hunter in Glades for $6,000. It was full of mud daubers and covered in mildew. Within 5 days or 5 people working we were able to get her in the water and head out to Ft.Myers. There was a continual list of jobs to get her through the sea trials and back, but we got a great deal.
Spend alot of time calling marina's, and getting to know the boat you're going to buy. The Florida climate is not forgiving to paint
, wiring, or anything else, so be mindful of the time you're going to have to be on land working in a high priced work yard.
My boat is done except for the deck paint
, and back in storage until next winter. Bahamas bound!
