The veridct?? Well, when I told the seller that I wanted a survey and then to launch the boat and do a sea trial prior to the purchase he told me that he was no longer selling the boat. I do however see it still for sale as well as listed on a new website.... I am going to create a beware thread to warn anyone else of this clown. Not sure what he's hiding but I'd hate to find out the hard way.

Sorry, it often works out for the best. It is possible the seller does not want to spend any additional fees on the boat. See trials usually require put in and take out fees plus a captain if seller does not want to go out. Where I purchased my boat in Annapolis it was $600-800 easy with no guarantee that you will purchase the boat. My seller was eager since the boat sat on hard for a long time and yard fees were eating her up. as per size of the boat I took ASA101 and 3 outings on friends boats and plunged into a Bristol 35.5. Went out on it 2-3 times with friends with experience and now I am comfortable. Still learning each time I go out but the boat is solid and I need not to look for another boat for quite a while if ever. Have gone out about 20 times since last July and love it. Go for it.

Sorry it didn't work out. I agree that if the seller isn't willing to have a sea trial (around here the buyer pays for the expenses) then it is a huge red flag.

Good luck looking.

We went from a 17' dinghy to a 1975, 38' CnC. Started out looking for something about 32-34' but ran into the 38 and fell in love. We're very glad we got the 38; we love the way it handles and the extra room. Two thumbs up from the admiral.

Think through your maneuvers before doing them. The bigger boat needs a little more room.

There's a ton of good used boats out there - another one will come along.

L. Erie boater too.

There's no "too big" until you hit fitty. But then, of course, you have dudes like Bene505 who singles that monster like a rockstar.

Go big. Go comfy. Go fun. Go smart. Dinghies are for suckas.
