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.

Thank God for caffiene.

We've got a landing spot and winter storage arranged, the funds transferred, three options for a slip in the spring, and the contacts to get the boat hauled, prepped and transported. Just trying to arrange a back-haul to save on transport $$$ and the owner to get the boat to the lift prior to that.

A few more gray hairs for sure.
Now your first mistake was NOT POSTING a review on said oyster dinner...rest is forgiven.

Unfortunate about the bottom needing a peel. If the boat is to your liking otherwise maybe the current owners would spring for a reduction in price equal to a bottom peel with you possibly paying for the barrier coat and bottom paint.

Just a thought

Doubleeboy-

A proper bottom peel and relaminate job is in the thousands of dollars... at a minimum.

To do it properly, they have to use a machine to plane away all the damaged laminate, and then dry the remaining hull out, usually using heat lamps and vacuum bagging, then they have to re-laminate the hull back to the original scantlings....and usually they re-gelcoat and then put a barrier coat over the gelcoat. Most owners aren't going to pay for that kind of work...since it can often be a significant fraction of the selling price.

Yep, the price range to do it right is just insane. We figured at best, the owners might go 50/50. But even if they cut the price for the total amount, we'd still be taking on a hassle that we'd rather not deal with. Why go there when there are many other boats on the market, and it's almost winter right now, so why rush?

Well said Jozrules...and most owners would only go 50/50 max... and that's a huge financial hit...which is totally unnecessary, especially in today's boat market.

Maybe I missed it, but what was the make of the boat (just out of curiosity)?

You didn't miss it. I don't think I ever said, just because I figured I'd wait to see if the survey went well. I don't think there's any harm is saying it was a Pearson. I've seen others that had no bottom problems, so it's nothing against Pearson of course. We'd still consider one if another comes along.

Sorry to hear about the letdown, josrulz. Yeah, there are plenty of boats out there, but by the time of the survey, you are mentally invested. But you dodged a bullet and did what you had to do! Good job.

The two big "breath-holders" for us during our survey was after the haul and power wash, and as the surveyer tapped out and metered the deck looking for wet core. Extensive problems in either area would have been disappointing show stoppers.

Good luck in your search!
