Agreed. When I got my boat the survey found the bow pulpit had been bent out of whack and the fridge did not work. There was no adjustment in price, but the seller paid the cost of repairing those items.

Isn't that sort of an adjustment? I wouldn't pick over the fridge, but if they repaired the bow pulpit that was money you didn't have to put out and more money that they did.

Yes. I only mentioned it as an example of what a prior poster had said: You don't survey until after an agreed price.

The reason there was an adjustment was that the broker and seller had pointed out what they knew of the boat and everything they knew was wrong. My offer was based on that information. The bow pulpit had not be noticed by anyone until during the survey, hence we agreed on an adjustment in the form of a repair.

It was interesting that it was me, not the surveyor, who noticed that the pulpit was out of whack. Sighting down from on centerline it seemed bent. The surveyor looked and said "sure is". The broker looked and said "damn, you're right".

Broker said the marina shop guys could straighten it out. The shop guys said it got wacked 2 years prior and they had already worked on it, that was as good as they could get it. Broker was good. He didn't argue, just ordered a new pulpit. Catalina sold them a replacement for around $700 and it cost another $500 to have it installed.

Re: Catalina value

We bought an older C36 this last summer. I will second the C36 user association as an incredible resource. Also, a factor for us was location. We spent months looking at boats from Wisconsin, Chicago, and southern Michigan. At the end of the day, we factored all the variables and gladly paid a bit more money for a comparable boat that only required that we moved the boat 4 slips for the delivery, as opposed to finding help sailing one home or getting it delivered.

On a side note, my family absolutely loves our C36, we have been very happy with it.

Re: Catalina value

The 86-88 vintage 36s in brokerage in your area have been listing just under 50k and selling in the low 40s over the last two years.
