I already have several surveys that people have sent me.
My idea is that with a broad cross section of surveys I can create a master super checklist which I am willing to share when it is done.
Would you be willing to send me a copy of any surveys you have.
If you want to redact personal info I understand completely. If personal information is included it will be ignored as it is not important for my purposes.
If you want to share even more I would like to know.
1. Did you buy the boat
If so for how much. What did you find out that the survey missed?
If you didn't buy the boat why not?
If folks are willing to send me the raw data I'm willing to compile it and report back my findings.
I'm hoping that with sufficient data I can make some contribution to understanding the buying and selling process.
I've been on this forum for over 5 years so I'm well aware that some of you may have very strong opinions about why you would never share for free something that cost you a thousand dollars or more.
To that very legitimate issue let me make a few comments:
- I am fully aware that no one owes me anything. It cost you a lot of money and you may figure that if I want a survey I can pay for my own. If you don't want to send it for any reason I completely understand.
- Some people will be happy to send it though because even though it cost so much at the time it doesn't cost you anything to share it and maybe I can extract some general principles from it.
- I know several sailnet members personally and some have already sent me their surveys, thanks.
- I will keep private anything you tell me to keep private.
This is the address to send your survey to.
