This is a great thread. Let it live sans tacking.

I'm a bit surprised that you black souls have not managed to dampen the spirits of North Channel Sailor. After all, you folks bring "experience on a professional level".
You might consider that one of those internet sailors has actually examined the vessel in question. Have you ?

It's always struck me as funny that those with no education, training and little or no experience love to slam those who have acquired same at great expense over several decades.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

Can you honestly look at that video and put any credence in that "glowing" survey report ?

What standard is your $100k repair bill based on then?

Re: The $1 Dollar Boat

I wasn't really asking about your credentials. I was asking about your baseline.

Although being familiar with the vessel counts for something.

The good survey is just as irrelevant to me as your estimate. Sorry, no offence. Obviously the boat needs attention. Your assessment is probably closer to the fact than the survey I have in my hands right now. I just found it ironic that an equally qualified surveyor found the vessel in good condition and another does not. I know what the issues are. I have a plan and a budget. I also plan to enjoy the process and the sailing. Stay tuned folks.....

Re: The $1 Dollar Boat

Looks like a fun project, NCS. As long as you keep it a fun project, instead of desperately wrapping your life and your household budget around it, you're good to go. Working on an old boat definitely beats sitting around watching 'reality' TV... especially if you can rope the kid into giving you a hand.

Some of the best hours of my life were spent with my son, working on projects my wife considered a waste of time and money. I love her dearly, but she can be almost soul-killing 'practical' at times.

Try not to let the urgent override the important.

Exactly, what else would I do with my spare time? I am just a regular guy with three kids, wife and mortgage still trying to make ends meet. I have no dilussions, that is the reality. Sometimes you just need to go out on a limb a little bit and do the things that bring you enjoyment. It's worth the risk. What's life without a little adventure.

I know every surveyor in Ontario (all 250) I love to know which one did that report.
or if you prefer not to name him could you please list his/her qualifications or at the very least the source of their Certification or Accreditation as a surveyor.

My point in listing that information was to show that my estimate was based on a highly educated guess based on standards and experience not just the usual internet speculation.
