Many of us are shopping for boats far & wide. It would be nice to get a preliminary idea of a particular boats condition before spending time & money to go see that boat.
This thread can be a resource for 'remote eyes'. I propose that those that are willing to take a peek at a boat for sale put your location here. This would not constitute a survey or recomendation or anything more than one persons opinion.

PLEASE keep these posts short & direct to the locations offered and perhaps time of year. Do not clog this thread with various opinions on a boat visited or other stuff.

Any inquiries for help should be made by Private Message only, off line. Keep the communications private.

Comments regarding findings should only be shared on a separate thread and only with the agreement of both sailnetters.

Brokers, please refrain from joining in here. This is for independent evaluations.

Thanks.

EDIT: NOTE...THIS SERVICE IS PROVIDED AS A FREE ASSISTANCE BY SAILNET MEMBERS FOR SAILNET MEMBERS. ALL FINDING ARE SIMPLY OPINIONS AND SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN AS PROFESSIONAL EVALUATIONS OR RELIED UPON FOR ULTIMATE PURCHASE DECISIONS. THIS IS MERELY A HELPFUL SERVICE IN THE SPIRIT OF SAILORS HELPING OTHER SAILORS!

Good thought Zort......

I'll volunteer. As I mentioned in the other thread; anywhere within about 2 hours of Corning NY, which would include the shore of Lakes Erie and Ontario from Erie PA to about Syracuse NY.

It probably would not be on short notice though; but I doubt we'd be asking for other's in-expert assistance in a time critical situation anyway.

I would be happy to do it in exchange for being informed about your particular purchase, and maybe a copy of the survey you get if the sale goes that far. The education I would get from making my observations then comparing them to those of the eventual buyer and surveyor would more than offset my time and gas.

This could be fun........

I'd be willing to cover Eastern Massachusetts, basically the greater Boston Metro area. If necessary and gas costs are covered I'd be willing to cover the Cape, Northern Rhode Island and Southern New Hampshire. Like Ajari, if any of the boats I look at go to survey, I'd like to see the survey report.

EDIT: I'll leave RI to TB et al.

Texoma, TX at the moment. I may be able to do all of the Dallas area. SW Fl is a possibility depending on the timing, as is S coast Texas.

I'd gladly research/inspect prospective boats for sale along the Narragansett Bay area. Preferably the East Bay/Newport County communities - including Newport, Jamestown, Middletown, Portsmouth, Tiverton and Little Compton, as well as Bristol County - Bristol, Warren and Barrington, RI.

Galveston Bay

I enjoy looking at boats, so I will make myself available in the Galveston Bay area--perhaps more of the Texas coast if I can get my travel covered.

I'll take the Northern Chesapeake. I have a good digital camera I can chip in to the cause.

The warning in red applies though. I am NOT a trained surveyor.

Actually this sounds like fun.
