    All,
    Starting my next boat hunt from VA. So I am looking for some qualified folks in ME that I could hire to put eyes on boats for me before I get on a plane. I know I've seen posts on here over the years from folks offering hourly inspection and estimate services but can't seem to find any now. Feel free to pm me or email to bill.rainey444@gmail.com. Thanks.
    Bill

    Thanks - I sent him a message but I was not sure if it was Jerry that offered that type of service or another member.

    What direction you headed? Someone somewhere might have seen just the right rig for you. You might want to give us all the scoop so we can let you know about it if that is the case.
    Good luck with your search.

    Cape Island style Novi; 42+ x 15+; preferably with a Cummins, Deere or CAT. Budget <$100K USD. I'm in touch with Athearn/TriNav and watching Facebook but other help is appreciated. Bill

    42 Atkinson for sale in Rockland, has a GM though, think hes asking 90 something. Its on facebook under Maine Commercial fishing gear. The boat has been around here since it was new. She ws a seiner on Vinalhaven, and been lobstering since, but I don't think its had a lot of use in the last 10 years
