Re: I've taken your advice...and found a better boat
Awesome! Sounds like this boat may have found you! Looks pretty nice for the price...As long as the systems to get you on the water and sailing are intact, I think you're golden!
This boat is a pretty good sized 30 footer! and if others are vouching for its pedigree, makes you feel better about the investment
I bought my boat without survey but it was $2500 and I trusted the seller, visited his home while making the deal and felt confident in general...
No sea trial here but realize it was a risk...Only leaking when I launched was coming from the stuffing box which leaked more than normal...but then again, when a boat sits on the hard for a while it's normal for the stuffing material to shrink and once exposed to water, it will slowly swell...Leaking slowed down quite a bit after the boat was in the water for 24 hours but I adjusted the stuffing box anyways to leak the more normal 4 drops per minute...
