Re: Quality of boats that sit vs sail

I purchased a boat in similar circumstances, Philzy. We had a few (possibly many) more deferred maintenance/replacement issues than I thought, but it worked out fine--though it wouldn't have if we had had to pay for all my labor Oh, and don't sweat the black oil too much. Oil in a diesel goes black pretty quickly when the engine is run.
