Re: Hunter 28.5 versus Allmand 31

I had a chance to visit the Allmand with the owner. I saw corrosion on the chain plates, and a possibly damaged bulkhead where one of the chain plates attached, plus other problems, some of which were noted above. I researched repair costs for some of the bigger stuff I saw, subtracted the costs from the NADA value, and made an offer that was about 7% above that result. The owner was less than pleased with the offer, so I walked away. It's a shame, because it would have been a nice boat for us. In the meantime, the Hunter has sold. So, now I am back at square 1. There is a lot of crap out there right now, and stuff that's way outside my budget. I haven't really seen anything that's "close" that meets my needs/requirements. So, I am thinking of sitting out this season, and maybe adding my expected slip fees to the "pot" so I will have more to play with next fall.

Thank you all very much for the help and support!
