Sounds like you let this one go? Reading the descriptions of the work to get the bottom refinished made me cringe. Remember that when you eventually sell your boat, you will never recoup the time and money that you put into it. Same goes for the guy who's selling you his boat. Bottom line is that it is worth paying a little more for one that has had the work done already. There's lots of good boats out there - keep looking. IIRC, you are in the NW somewhere?
Yes, the moment our friend saw the boat he brought us back to reality, and told us to walk away.
We are in the NW. Still looking, by the end of this, I would've seen it all.
Thanks for the encouragement
