I'll be driving by tomorrow and on Monday. As long as there is a place to park 18-wheeler, I can find half an hour to check the boat.

Welcome from another new guy Liz.

My question is: have you got a vehicle that can pull it ? Those boats were made to be trailered.

One other point: I'm about to start on my own boat (boatbuilder by trade) and I'm going to be looking for a used boat to salvage gear from. If it does turn out to be too much work to take on, maybe someone in your area is doing the same thing...

Otherwise, there's lots of folks on here who know their stuff and would be happy to help.
Ru, I repped you for your offer - most generous.

Well, you can only lose what you put into it. Going in with your eyes wide open, keeping a close watch on what you spend, and not getting emotionally invested in the boat can make this a great deal for you to get started.
