Sail test question - Proper procedure
Here's the deal. I'm try to sell my boat without a broker. I have a couple people somewhat interested, and one of them wants to do a test sail, but we haven't yet discussed money. When I bought it through a broker, I submitted a written offer, contingent on a test sail and survey, but this potential buyer, never really made an offer, he was more like "I really like this boat, can we take it out for a sail?" and not wanting to lose the sale, I said "sure, how about Wednesday". But now I'm thinking this might be a big waste of time. Should I ask the buyer to make an offer first? Or should I keep it casual, and just see what happens?
