Re: The Joys and Pitfalls of Buying a New Boat - Part 1

Forgot to address this in the first response...

Having a savvy friend give candidate boats a once over may be a great way of weeding out unacceptable boats without investing in a survey.

IMHO, however, once you find "The One" (which given your stating intentions will likely be a cruiser in the 30'-40' range) you are going to be well served by having a professional survey(s) done by an accredited surveyor before you take ownership.
