Also, there will always be another right boat, so don't feel bad about taking a pass. The other good thing about taking the sea trial first is that you get to experience the boat for future reference, if it doesn't work out.

Dude, some of us live aboard and alone by choice, and then there are those of us who go out of their way to eliminate all other options.
If you think a pre-purchase survey would have saved you money, just consider the cost of decommissioning.

If only I could of had a pre-purchase survey on the Admiral, would have saved me a packet.
I hope she never reads this forum or I may find myself buried at sea, alive.

|PaulinVictoria||You may well be right, and it's going to cost me a few hundred dollars to find out one way or the other but at the moment as far as my untrained eyes can see, it's not bad. If the survey isn't good, I walk away, plenty more fish in the sea.|

|bljones||survey first. The water in the bilge worries me, and I have a sinking feeling about the amount of wet core you are going to find.|

|PaulinVictoria||Now of course the question is, sea trial before the survey, or after?|

|PaulinVictoria||The offer has been accepted, subject to survey and a sea trial. So, assuming they go well, I should be out on the ocean soon. Watch out mariners|

It's been the best one I've looked at so far. If I'm looking for the perfect one, well, I need to win the lottery or accept the fact that I'm going to be spending the next ten years looking for a boat rather than sailing one
If the guy accepts my offer then I will get it surveyed and see where I go from there. At worst I've spent a few hundred bucks for nothing.
