Re: Buying A Boat, Need Some Help

Marty, $10/foot would be a pretty good deal methinks.. some locals are approaching $20, we paid $12 in 2004 in Seattle.

It's not a minor expense, that's for sure... but for most it's worthwhile, and in any event if the boat is to be financed or insured a recent survey is usually a requirement.
