I can cover the entire Texas coast. A little help on gas would be nice.

Thanks.

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.

Sydney, Australia.

Not that it would be much use, given most of you are in the US of A, and you would be basically out of your friggin mind as an American to buy a boat in OZ given boats are as a rule much dearer downunder. However my hat is in the ring for other aussies or for an extraordinary circumstance where someone international was looking at a boat down here.

I am Jersey City and willing to look at boats within an hour or so of here. I started with a Mirror dinghy and now (6 boats later) have a Bristol 45.5. I also do almost all of my own work so I would consider myself to be an experienced amateur.

I'm in Portland, ME and would gladly help someone wanting feedback on a boat that's in a reasonable radius from here.

I'll be glad to help out in the San Diego area. I'm out looking at boats as it is and I have a camera. My expertise is not great but my willingness to help is.

Another set of eyes for the Puget Sound, i am actually pretty experienced and thorough in checking out boats as well, not to mention I love to do it! Based in the Bellingham-Seattle area but i never mind an excuse to get out the motorcycle and go out for a ride!

And I have a camera.
