Thanks Joe, I will try my best to take your advice. "Deep breath,.... Exhale". I'm over it. It'll distract from the excitement of the boat if we agonize over every penny now.
I think we're about ready.
Surveyor lined up and paid Check!
Boatyard lined up for haulout. Check!
Motel to stay tomorrow night. Check!
Some things I missed on the negotiation of the boat:
The prepurchase agreement clearly states that what comes with the boat, unless otherwise agreed, is the list of specifications found on the brokerage listing. Nothing else. As I began thinking about bringing Serenity home, I suddenly realized that I'd need charts, and at least a couple from around her present sailing grounds that I'd likely not need again. Of course they are probably on the boat, in her nav table,. but since they aren't explicitly included, and they can be pricey, I'm now regretting that I didn't try and include them in the deal. Same with the dinghy. In several pictures there was a Zodiac inflatable on the deck of the boat, but it isn't listed in the specs either. He's willing to sell it, I wonder how much? Sigh...........
So how much is a "Zodiac Model No. SB275, length 9' with 4'11" beam, inflatable with hard floor that you install when you inflate it and a Johnson 4 hp. outboard that is probably 11 or 12 yrs. old and all that can be said about it is that it runs." worth?
