"Jerry? I don't know....." maybe you'll remember the quote from Seinfeld. I was reading a response from Faster (I believe) earlier in this thread that mentioned Craigslist as a source - so off I went to the Seattle listings - there I found a Cape George Cutter ('75) for $155K. OK, beautiful boat well maintained - lots of stuff - but there are 3 others that range from 60K to 99K which are also nice vessels. The seller of the expensive boat is up front saying this boat is appealing to a certain type of buyer ......
NCC320 mentions that he doesn't want to have his time wasted - and I totally agree - but how can a buyer investigate his possibilities without asking questions and poking around to find out whether he should go to a more serious level? I suppose that's the job that we saddle with brokers. Some of my most enjoyable times have been pulling into a dock and after chores are done - walking the docks to yak with other boat owners. I have not yet encountered one who did not want to respond. Everyone - from a 100+ foot aluminum thing in Big Bay near the Yaculta rapids to a fellow sailing a beautiful homemade kayak in Namu BC (that was the artist Stewart Marshall). Actually, there was a big boat in Neah Bay (80+ ft) that was somewhat snooty - perhaps because I asked if it was a Beneteau 32. Oh well, too bad if they can't take a joke.
My wife has agreed to a week of looking at boats later in the year. I just hope I can take all of the very sensible statements made on this thread and make a reasonable decision.
Nice motorcycles eherlihy - I started with the classic Honda 55 - crossed Canada twice on '71 & '72 Yamaha 650s - now an '81 Honda 750.
