That's a good idea. I've driven from SC as far as St Louis, FL, and NJ to buy boats from online ads. Had someone looked at the NJ boat I wouldn't have bought it, but after driving several hundred miles and talking the price down some I ended up with a boat that I probably should have walked away from. Any one in a few minutes would have spotted the problems, and if they didn't it's still no worse than not having someone look. I guess the only issue is if you don't pursue a boat based on what someone else says, when in fact your opinion would have been different.
