I just joined this board yesterday and do not have the 10 postings to IM another member. So, I am posting this with the hope that member Ibdavis who posted on page 8 of this thread that he would be willing to check out a boat in Portland Maine will see this. Or, if someone can IM him and ask him to please email me at hank nine seven five two at yahoo dot com There is a 28 foot Pearson Triton in his area I would like him to have a look see for me. Thank you. Hank

You do understand that these "initial inspections" would have to be FREE... if you're looking to charge for your services, you're violating the terms of service. I'd also point out that you really need to read the Full Disclosure Thread for the forums here.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hi SailingDog,
I am happy to do this in my travels from one marina to another, free of charge. This spring I saved a guy in Vancouver from a survey on a 49' boat that was, shall we say, mis-advertised and he said he'd buy me lunch as a thank-you if he ever came to Los Angeles but that wasn't the reason I helped - I'd like to have a non-biased, expert set of eyes to just see if a boat's reasonably like it's advertised, myself.

I'll write more in my profile tonight and hopefully give folks an idea of who I am and what I'm doing. Briefly, I believe our community's what we make it and am surprised and disappointed more professionals don't help in the forums and blogs - It's good for everyone. In this spirit, I've got a blog that's free to all, in which I write in-depth (far too much in depth for forums such as these!) in boat repair and seamanship. If you read it, you'll see I pull no punches with any dogma and it's packed with terrific, practical advice. I'm looking forward to giving the same, here. I wish more boating professionals and in particular, manufacturers, would participate in public blogs and forums such as this. There is really only so much expertise recreational boaters have in technical subjects and I feel I can help.

Thanks for pointing me to the note you've got on commercialism - I fully agree with it. If I've got a brief article I've written on my blog someone asks about here, I'll copy and paste it but there's a number of articles I've written that are simply too large, have videos and pictures, etc. and not appropriate here. It's only natural for me to refer to various references and I have several times, today, here. If I've published a significant article that's not appropriate here that someone specifically asks for, I'll mention it but that's a rarity - I reference whatever I'm answering in chat, blog, etc. and the most interesting materials generally come from manufacturers. I guess we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. I'm looking forward to being a great part of sailnet and enjoying the people I'm meeting.

I'm happy to learn the ins and outs of etiquette here and am not proud, so please let me know if I've inadvertently stepped on anyone's toes. Thanks!

Cheers!
- Jerr

Anyone near Norfolk, VA?

I am traveling to Virginia over Thanksgiving. We're considering a side trip (several hours) to Norfolk to look at a boat there. Is there anyone in the Norfolk area who might be willing to preview the boat for me and see if it is worth it?

Is anyone interesyed in covering the Port Huron, MI area? I'm interested in a Cal 39 there. Also interested in boats in Hollywood, Melbourne and Clearwater, FL. I recently looked at a Pearson 36 a few hours from me and found a lot of undisclosed problems....significant water intrusion/rot throughout and a bilge full of thick oil with a stream leading from the engine....lol, hate spend the money to fly around the country only to find the same thing. Aren't brokers supposed to disclose any known problems like they must with real estate? I'm certainly not even close to being an expert, but I will look at boats in Maine.
