Re: Buying my first boat please help

Agree with all. While some people hate brokers, on our current boat our broker negotiated MORE off the price than I asked based on the survey results. He was extremely helpful and found us a great...

Re: Marine Air Conditioning Install

There are a lot of steps involved and while each isn't especially difficult, they are time consuming. You would have to install a through hull and seacock for the cooling water, pump, condenser,...

Re: Bascule bridge, Knapps Narrows, MD question

Some bridges go fully open, others don't. I've been through Knapps Narrows and don't recall any issue. Just stay toward the side where it's most open. Since only one side opens (as opposed to draw...

If you can't afford it, then it's a yacht. Otherwise, it's a boat.

Re: What would you do? Caught off guard by storm on the Chesapeake

I'd say that your scenario isn't that hypothetical, it's an inevitability in the mid-Atlantic. I can say from experience that most of not all of us have been it this situation. For my part, I've...

Re: Help with tired interior

I'm glad that you aren't replacing the veneer. I do a lot of veneering and it will not work for you because a) the stick-on veneers won't work over an oily (i.e., teak) substrate, b) the substrate...

Re: "Paying" friends wanting to go on the boat.

You mentioned getting back to boat building and that will certainly keep you on the water. How about building a smaller boat? I know that we're all in love with this idea of living aboard and...

Re: Bulkhead refinishing question

Why did you put mahogany stain on mahogany? As Siamese said, a satin finish like Minwax Helsman or Minwax wipe-on poly is all that you need. The interior of Victoria is done in satin and gloss...

Re: Initial Offer Question

Interesting responses. All are good and I'll only add one thing that I haven't yet read. Buying or selling an item is not a contest of wills. A successful negotiation is a meeting of goals or...
