Re: Local boat buying assistance

Jeffro, in the USA, many states do require titles, so it depends on where you are. There are some good threads on inspecting boats, though some of them may be overkill for a small, simple boat. Is the owner willing to let you take it on a test sail, assuming you could borrow a sail that would fit? There are several companies that specialize in selling old sails (Minney's, Bacon, etc.), though I don't know whether they'd have many dinghy (small sailboat) sails.
