I live near Kemah Texas, can cover Houston over to Galveston and any where in between. This is one of the largest boating areas in the country.
Also like AjariIwould like a copy of the survey to compare with my notes

Is anyone covering South Bend Indiana? I'm looking to buy a boat. There is a Melges c scow in South Bend that I'm interested in.
Also, I'm new to sailing but I can look at a boat while I'm on my cell phone talking to a potential buyer. My inexperienced eyes may be better than none, so I'm volunteering to cover Buffalo (Lake Erie) and local lakes,and southwest areas of Lake Ontario.

I'm happy to cover Cartagena, Colombia and maybe Santa Marta on occasion. We're on a job assignment for about another year and half.

We're in Missoula, Montana. Think Flathead Lake, Canyon Ferry Lake. We'd be more than happy to take a look at boats.

New Boat Buying Assistance List

I'm putting together an up to date listing (that will be kept up to date) of members willing to assist other members in the boat buying process. Volunteering for the list doesn't obligate you to help, but it does mean you have expressed a willingness to help, if possible. There'll be a link on the page, or you can contact me to have yourself removed.

What is assistance? It could be an informal eyeball survey. Taking pictures. Talking with the owner/broker. Things like that, for a member who is not in the area of the boat they are interested in. Or it could be going along with a member to view a boat.

Obviously, it is coastal areas that will have most of the volunteers. That doesn't mean there aren't times when help is needed in "dry" areas.

What I need from you, the volunteer is this :

Sailnet User Name

State/province/etc that you are willing to help in. If only a part of that area, specify the area, or say all. (For instance, State - Virginia - Deltaville or Virginia - All)

An e-mail address if you want to be contacted directly (you can PM me in that case). If none is furnished, then the member will contact you through Sailnet. Your choice.

The purpose here is to make the list easily accessible (a link on the boat buying forum) and to keep it up to date. I'd like to have this ready in a couple of weeks, so please let me know if you want to volunteer, either in this thread, or through PM.

Happy to go look or take photos for/with people, can't say I know much about what I'm looking at, but might be able to give some guidance to first-timers. Sidney, BC, and contact through here is fine, not like I don't visit regularly

I'd help again,
The County, Brighton and Kingston maybe 1000 islands to Gan so to speak, atleast there I could hit the Casino as well.. lol
Also, if you were to do the murray canal, some times you may need a third for what ever reason I could always jump on and off at the end.
SN/Email either is fine
