What a terrific idea!

I just went through the process of buying a new (to me) boat, and can't stress the value of having someone along to assist. In my case - seeing as I am very unfamiliar with the process - my 'guy' (a dockmate from my marina) was able to give very good and objective feedback. I know he prevented me from making a huge mistake because of his insight.
