last word from my side to say to this IRWIN 52 in Dinner Key Marina
well, I was asking me self how I can find out what else is wrong with this boat. So I did ask for a tug boat to get it in the yard and take it out the water.
The answer was, that the guys need two boats with at least 4 h per boat for a small quote of 300 bugs/h. Then to bring is out the water is additional 500 and the water blast 100 as well.....but I think I sow enough. its a good deal for maybe 20000 l....but the asking 60000 was much to high. And every bad thing what I discovered ended in no interest from the owner.He didn`t went down any dollar ....a shame
As to finish up with this boat and to warn everybody to get closer to them... the calculation is about 100 000 to get is back in the water, but then there are still too many questions marks. Then there is still no dingie, usable davits,no water maker, no new plumbing, bilge pump, usable anchor, water hoses.......never ending story, what is partiality required, no electric is a lot is not working and I found in almost all lamps no glue bulb( why this?) the mast top light is also not working and the rig is not yet replaced.
additional there is still the issue with the prop,maybe the shaft got a problem too and destroyed the fibreglass and bearings as well
The owner isn't honest and not helpfully.He hide a lot and hopefully he need to keep it and will not find any "idiot like me" that is stupid enough to believe the owner as well the broker .
I did cancel the deal today and hopefully another guy will not step in my feeds.
I've got the offer to sell my survey to another interest that will follow me , but its better, he read here something and save the money....its a gift from me. The survey isn't in written in any way not yet complete, because the surveyor and I agreed to proceed to another boat.
in the case, that somebody is still interested, he can buy the survey from me for the half as I payed as well photos that show the underwater ship in detail.
kind regards and when somebody know another boat what is not a rubbish-project like this....please contact me immediately as long we stay still in Miami.
