Re: Going to look at a boat
How was the boat?
I hope you did better than the first boat I looked at. I had my suspicions that the pics the guy sent me were out of date, so I went a day early to check out the exterior in advance. The boat was clearly trashed - pics must have been 10 years old - so I canceled my appointment and never looked inside.
Like I said, I hope you had better luck.
OTOH, while we were at the marina we spoke to the local Catalina dealer, who sized us up and told us he thought the C250 would be perfect for us. He had a used one for sale, but it had issues so we passed. After 5 (winter) months of looking at boats up to 36' from Norfolk to Kingston, NY, we ended up buying a C250, but it was in much better condition than the one he had. It was a FSBO in the same marina.
