Re: Valiant 32 problem with Fire Retardant in resin.

Thanks for the reply to my thread. This yacht is registered on a European website and the asking price is 10,000 or 11,000 dollars US.
This price is negotiable as the seller is a little desperate. How do you think this compares with prices in the US?

Very low I would think. At that price there may be more problems than the blisters.

Re: Valiant 32 problem with Fire Retardant in resin.

Should get the survey results in the next 24 hours. That should give details of all the problems, both large and small.
Crossed fingers that it is not too bad. If it is bad, I am quite willing to walk away even at a lower price.

Re: Valiant 32 problem with Fire Retardant in resin.

Valiant side deck space can be greatly improved, by putting the stanchions on top of the bulwarks. They tended to have flimsy bow rollers, which can be rectified .

The bow rollers are not flimsy. Brent Swain does not know what he is talking about.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

We'll, to cut a long story short, I have bought the boat for 8000.
Lots of problems, as the boat has been ashore for the last four years, and has been left to deterioate.
Not had any contact with the last owner, which has also been a bit of a funny situation, with no explanation of the systems on the boat.
Can anyone help me with contact details for the owners association???????? They might be able to give me more information about the boat.
Thanks for all the advice in the past, it has been much appreciated. O

What about rectification of the problem, (probably by me, as a boatyard would be too expensive)?
Resale value, Resale Value, Resale value. Unless of course you are able to do a perfect reconstruction of the cosmetics.

Peter:
You could do the repairs yourself. You can attack one blister at a time.

Rich is correct, It's mainly about cosmetics and resale value.
