for me, its like this...
what the p.o. knew, didn't know, should have known, should have disclosed is all moot, same with the broker. I don't care what they knew, or didn't know. You watch,both will claim to be dumber than a bag of hammers about the whole deal. Prove they DID know. Knowing they knew, and proving they knew are two different things. The report said that the PO had just did something with the carbs, and that the po, and the broker were frustrated in not being able to get it running. I'm sorry, thats a far stretch that the po/broker KNEW something was wrong with the tank/fittings/fuel lines. (oh, I assume that they knew, but proving they knew...)
What about the clam head who shoveled over 28k... yea, 28,000 samolienes, for a hole in the water.
Hey, numbskull, you peel off 28,000.00 for a boat, you'd better make darn sure its as fit as one of your soon to be ex-wives. Pffft, hey, I shake that much outta my shorts in the morning, I don't check and see if I've got any wedged anywhere else. I'm not taking any responsibility for anything.
In short, ASSUME the worst, its YOUR money. If you don't get something checked out before you buy it, thats ALL on you, don't come crying when it goes ka-boom, and don't blame anyone else BUT yourself.
