Re: New Boat Buying Assistance List

You should start a separate thread for your questions.

Re: Local boat buying assistance

Sounds like a good idea to me. I remember all the driving I had to do to find lemons when I was looking. I'll give it a try in Norfolk VA.

Re: Local boat buying assistance

Looking for some help in Central Maine (central part of the coast that is...). Sent a PM to a member but I think he was further south and his last contact on the site was in October so he may not see my PM. THanks in advance to anyone who can assist.

I live in the midcoast/Rockland area and may be able to assist.

Re: Local boat buying assistance

Some of these volunteers are very dated and no longer post. Is there anyone currently volunteering who can look at a boat on the EASTERN shore of Chesapeake Bay? Please let me (and SN) know.
Thanks and have a great day.

Re: Local boat buying assistance

Jeffro, in the USA, many states do require titles, so it depends on where you are. There are some good threads on inspecting boats, though some of them may be overkill for a small, simple boat. Is the owner willing to let you take it on a test sail, assuming you could borrow a sail that would fit? There are several companies that specialize in selling old sails (Minney's, Bacon, etc.), though I don't know whether they'd have many dinghy (small sailboat) sails.
