My only problem with that strategy is that when I was looking at boats, I ended up eliminating most of them by my own visual inspection. Usually an offer requires earnest money. If everything is...

I had this same issue recently when looking for my boat. I travelled a lot before I found a boat I liked. I quickly caught on to the fact that boats are almost never as good as they look in...

I really don't find any of these arguments convincing. First off, a boat is a huge expense. I certainly wouldn't be eager to let my boat sink if I could do something to save her. Even with insurance...
