Re: Almost free boat

Yea I here ya... I'a $4,500 dollars into mine. It can be hell. And there are some good deals out there. Better to let a pro inspect it first. Then figure if you want a boat or if you are trying to make a buck. In my case It was / is a labor of love. And a 25 year old DREAM come to life. Got to love it...

Re: Almost free boat

Hi, there are some worrying points listed on the "boat inspection form", that are not shown in any of the photo's. It states "major damage to deck" and "cracks in dash/floor". You really ought to get to have a look at the vessel personally, take lots of pictures. Take somebody with you who really knows about the costs and difficulties of boat repairs. I wouldn't invest in a surveyor unless you are then really really sure that this is your boat and you don't mind loosing out the money invested if you are not the high bidder at the end. Also, as this is an auction, the price may well go up quite a lot. In deed, only today it went from its starting bid to $2000. There are still 18 days to go in the auction ...

Cracks could just be the normal spider web cracking of the gel coat. Its worth taking a look at her if you live nearby.

Re: Almost free boat

Just listed! LOL ..." Vessel is in need of clean-up and repair" WTF does "cement lined" hull mean? It's a whitby http://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa...56&acctid=1426

Re: Almost free boat

C'mon, nothing a bit of diy can't fix . I first thought they meant ferrocement, but looking at other listings of the same vessel I think they were made of fiberglass. Guess they mean the thick and hardened fouling amd barnacles ?

I don't know what to think of the inspection form it says the boat is 30' 10" long and 25' 6" wide, that is a wide boat! Does not look bad for a very basic boat, but it is already bid to what I think it is likely worth and is still not to the reserve price.
