local boat buying assistance

We're up to about 100 participants on the local assistance list

Has anyone here been contacted to help?

I thought I'd hear from somebody wanting a nice freshwater boat from the most depressed city in the country but I haven't had one contact since I started the list.

So share your stories if you have them.

Don't think I helped much.. as I recall we discussed a surveyor, that's about it! But glad you got a boat you're happy with.

Not a list, per se.... a thread with people offering help in certain areas.

An easy access list would be nice to have somewhere....

Then it was somebody else that actually scouted the boat. Name is on the tip of my tongue. They said the boat was in great shape except that the elec panel was all rusted. That was a bit scary for me plus the long distance and relatively high price so I moved on.
Apologies to the SN'er whose name I can't remember.
