Will do guys, we are having it hauled and surveyed this week. I am not sure if I should talk money before the haul out of not, I probably will cause I was talking about him owner financing a small part of it.

Hauled and surveyed. Two of the most important words for the boat buyer... You CAN talk about money first but you might wait till you get the survey results. They are the most important bargaining chip you will have as you finalize the deal. Great info about the condition of your boat will help both with making sure you get a great deal and in keeping the boat safe and comfortable as an owner.

You might just wait till you hear about condition and then talk about money. Getting the owner to back waaaay off his price is easier if you have not already been making side deals with him. I had an instance where I was looking at a house on land. I had loved the owner and he and I had a great rapport but when the inspection was done we found out the entire water delivery system needed to be replaced it would cost 25 grand. He would not budge on the price since we had been talking about all of the great things in the house already and he knew I was interested. It cost me the house and him the sale. I would get the survey first.

Yeah thats a good point, i will wait and see. i told him i was interested still but he seems like he wants to move it soon so thats another point. Ive got an idea for an offer and it is a good bit lower than his asking price and Im sure he wont go there but it will get the ball rolling after the survey. Thanks guys ill post up some shots if everything works out.

Well guys I am terrified but the boat passed and I got it. No photos yet money is going to be tight for a little while but it will be worth it, any tips to help get rid of this anxiety. I want to but its a big change from living on land with parents to living on the water by myself.

Well guys made one big payment today the guy has been great I am going to pay him the taxes soon on the boat and then he is letting me pay off what I owe him, and come to find out the jib is a 155 haha so the boat should scoot along well but I will probably reef it back until I get used to the boat. Any tips for living on the boat of this side? I need to figure things out before moving on, im going to go ahead and take care of some bright work and change some wiring on the boat, I also need to find some good interior cabin lights I want to go LED to save power so any ideas and tips would be great.
Thanks
