In reading the helpful list, what different thougts come to mind when looking at a ~30-ft boat with diesel that's been only on freshwater?

Re: Boat Inspection Trip Tips

Sailingdog
a big thank you. my wife and I are going to start kicking some tires in search of a sub 10 year old boat in the 40 ft. range and even though her father, a very meticulous surgeon and lifelong sailor, did not have nearly as comprehensive a list (with reasons you are doing this) to give me.
Thanks again

Re: Boat Inspection Trip Tips

I am looking at a larger boat and this is going to make my mind up for me. I am going to order one tonight. This is the reason I joined Sailnet. THANK YOU...

Re: Boat Inspection Trip Tips

OK, this thread helped tremendously in many ways but is making me reconsider whether to buy a day sailor or one large enough to live on?
