. . .. . ..GoodChance. . ..see you 'edited' your earlier post. I got a chance to read it before you did. Gotta say it wasn't exactly fair. You. . .and I . ...are both going on second hand information. I will tell you that the owner did give your friend a recent survey (Jan 2012) that valued the boat at 29K and did not mention any major damage. Suposedly the same surveyor was used this time, so. . .. .from 29K to buyer beware in 3 months (with the boat out of the water)??
