We have a cottage in Horton Bay, between Boyne City and Charlevoix. I'll be there from time to time this summer sailing the family Laser. I may also bring our Helms 25 up from Grand Haven for a week or two. You're welcome to join us for a sail when we're there.

Private buying documents

Hello, can you help me by telling me how a form looks like by buying a 35’ sailing boat from a private person, NO via broker. Are there standard forms?
Thanks in advance.

Your Ericson 29 should make him excited about getting back to the States alright. Nice boat. I had a Zuma in the 1990's and it was a fast, fun boat; easity towed behind your vehicle. I even put atop my station wagon before I bought a cheap trailer to tow it easier. It should give you endless hours of enjoyment before you find your next cruiser. [Learned to sail in Seattle on a Laser] Good hunting and enjoy that cabin.

I would be a bit cautious regarding the check and making sure it clears properly... since there have been some new recent scams that use the "soldier in Iraq" as part of their new routine. I'm not saying that that is the case here, but as someone who deals with internet security issues a lot... it is something to be aware of.

Everything is going as smoothly as possible, I have the check and will cash it today, then send them the title as soon as the funds clear.

Still no idea on the amount of $$ ebay and paypal will charge. I can't believe she is actually gone, sad day!

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.

From what I've heard lately, that a cashiers check is NO more guaranteed untill it CLEARS as a personal check.

No check, whether it is a traveler's check, cashier's check, a certified bank check, a personal check or a money order is "guaranteed". It is far to easy to counterfeit or forge any of the above nowadays.
