Purchase, surveys, and seatrials...
I found this particular boat, where I can a make an bargain offer and most likely get it as a bargain. That, of course, if I decide to skip survey and seatrial and write the check now...
I've checked the boat myself and found soft spots on deck but I'm willing to deal with them.(They are known to the owner and broker) The boat was on water until a couple of weeks ago and broker states that the engine was working perfect. And I'm willing to deal with the engine as well...
And it'd be a bargain for the boat, if I can buy it at the price I'm offering.
The boat has been taken care of and updated by the previous owner who had to relocate... As far as I can tell, he wasn't thinking about selling the boat by the upgrades he added to the boat. Most are structural upgrades, those been done by professionals...
What do you think?
Should I take my chances or play it safe?
The boat would be used for coastal crusing in LIS for up to 5-10 years...
