I am looking at a Cheoy lee 36 and a Pearson 32 the cheoy lee has been out of water for 6 years and slightly neglected but in my eyes workable. My significant other wants a neater and newer looking boat. I want to love the boat I get. THe cheoy lee will need a seasons work to make her look neat and good. Both are in the same price range and I can buy today if I want. I am in the south shore of Massachusetts area.

I'm in the Atlanta, GA area, up in the northeast right by Lake Lanier and not that far from Lake Hartwell in SC, so if anybody is looking at anything in this neck of the woods I'll be happy to lend a hand and some time. I could also swing Lake Allatoona on the other side of Atlanta, if anybody really wants to sail over there! ;)

Just keep in mind I'm a relative newbie just searching for my own first boat now, so I'm hardly one to offer any expert opinions. I am a professional photographer however, so I can promise to come back with good photos for you at the very least!

Can anyone take a look at a boat for me on Cape Cod - take some pics so I can see if it's worth pursuing.

The boat is on a trailer at the owners house, so access should be easy. It's in Cotuit.

Please PM me. Much appreciated.

If anybody is available to take a look at a boat in Galena, MD (near Georgetown, on the eastern shore), I would greatly appreciate it. PM me or leave a message here if you're able to help and we can work out the details, I'm happy to cover gas and whatnot if needed.

I am looking at an SJ24, $4600 Crown 23 $3000 and a Tanzer 22 $3000 in the next few days, I am on Vancouver Island. The boats are in Ladysmith, Nanaimo and Courtenay respectively.
I have sailed on many larger boats as a kid in the Bahamas, as a guest. I lived on Andros from 10 to 15 yrs old. As well as the local traditional local sloops and we had use of a Sunfish from the hotel.
I have a Prindle 16, Chrysler Pirateer 13 and a home built Opti/Sabot with a bowsprit running 56 sqft of a Delta wing hang glider for power...what can I say, use what ya got.
All of which I have 2 seasons sailing on.
So... a little knowledge is more dangerous than none...lol
I intend to daysail/weekend with my wife, who is a total lubber in the Campbell River area. For now, we will be fair weather sailors, running for shore/bays/marinas when she blows.
Ok, any comments/suggestions on the 3 candidates in our list?
Thanks
Steve

Any sailneters in the keys close to Marathon? I'm in Florida but at the other end of the state and would appreciate if someone could take a quick look see before I make the trip to see the boat. The pictures look great but I have seen great looking pictures and went to see the boat and ....... not so great:confused:

Re: Montreal Area

Hanmo,

The purpose, at least as stated in the OP, is for people to volunteer locations that they are willing cover. People looking for assistance need to search through the thread, and if they find someone who has volunteered for the area where the boat is, contact them directly.

Best of luck!

I can cover San Diego to Newport Beach

I live in Oceanside and work in Newport Beach and am often in San Diego to work on my boat. I am always up to kick the tires for someone if they are interested in a boat in the Socal area. I know enough to rule out and save you the cost of a survey or the effort of coming to look at a lemon. I also have a professional quality camera so can forward good images of the boat.

Re: New Boat Buying Assistance List

I'm not much use for giving advice yet, but I'm more than happy to go visit and take pictures for you, maybe eyeball any specific items you want me to. I can handle Broward and Monroe counties in Florida, which encompasses Hillsboro Inlet down to Key West.

I can also find you local surveyors, yards, marinas, moorings, etc.

SN/PM is fine, I'm on every chance I get.
I'm about to pull the trigger on purchasing a 33' Irwin MKii on Marathon Key. This will be my first sailboat purchase, but I don't have the funds for a professional survey. So two favors, would you be interested in looking at the boat with me this Wednesday or Thursday? And I also am trying to find a good, cheap liveaboard marina to move it to once I do buy it (it's moored on a free mooring right now). I've already been on the boat and it looks to be in good condition for a 38 year-old boat, but I'm worried I might overlook something. Thanks for your time
James

Hello James -

You should review some boat inspection tips prior to visiting your prospective boat. This could include this write-up:

http://www.sailnet.com/forums/boat-review-purchase-forum/48177-boat-inspection-trip-tips.html

It would help to have an experienced boat owner along. However, you need to get a professional survey for a purchase this big. Frankly, if you can't afford a survey, you will not be able to afford a sailboat. Furthermore, if you are going to get insurance for the boat (may be required by marinas), then you may be required to have a survey. Anyway, that is my $.02. Good luck with your purchase.
