This is really helpful. Sailingdog's comment brings me to wonder about a boat I'm thinking to buy. It seems really inexpensive (less than $6K), so I wonder if I should go to the effort of paying to pull it out of the water to inspect everything below the waterline. I assume that would typically be on the prospective purchaser, assuming it would be a costly method, such as using a crane. At the moment, the boat is in the water, so I hope a "sea trial" would at least be allowed. I didn't know about escrow, but would it be applicable to such a relatively small purchase? Any thoughts?

Also, I'm not available to inspect the boat myself, so I'm going to have to rely on others. I thought about a survey, but from this thread, I might not be buying much assurance of the condition.

Did you mention the location of the boat, I missed it. There is a thread where SailNet Members have volunteered to do drive by boat visits. If you are going to pursue this it would be better to start your own thread so you don't get accused of hijacking this thread.

Stay tuned, this event has raised a whole bunch of questions in my mind. I will kick off separate threads so we don't mess this one up.
