Hello,
I've been looking at boats to buy and I found one that I am really interested in. My problem is I'm pretty much a newbie and I'm not 100% sure what to look for. Is there anyone local (or not too far away) who is more experienced and able to come on short notice to help a fellow Sailnetter on their first boat purchase? Lunch and beer is on me.

I'm on Lake Norman and the boat is in Denver new Westport Marina. Shoot me a PM if you can help.

Thanks,
Chris

Guys,

I need anyone of you that lives near him, to please go there and have a look at this boat for him.

He showed photos and such, and the boat looks good, and has a spot in the marina already..

But O'days sometimes have weak soft decks, the chainplates need inspection and according to him the stanchions "shake".

Thanks in advance

Yes it is. I think I showed you pics.

It's finally getting down to it. The RV sold and I'll be getting the money tomorrow.

I hope you've read and taken notes on the Boat Inspection Trip Tips thread I started. :) I'm sure that one of our colleagues here will help you out.

He knows how you maintain stuff apparently. :)
Sheeesh; I offered an O'day 32, trailer, and a 2002 F-250 for his RV and he turned me down. Good luck!
