immunizations

I am in the market for a 45-50ft cruiser I have been working with a few brokers and just about ready. I was just curious though do I need to get vaccinated before I purchase me boat because in my search for a boat I have come across quite a few owners that are selling due to health reasons I would hate to buy a boat and after a few months of owning it get sick.

Re: immunizations

The other thing to be concerned with is many are selling to buy a bigger boat,
and you don't want to catch that disease either!

Re: immunizations

Remember that most cruisers, particularly big boat cruisers start when they retire. In large part because us young guys can't afford a big boat, or the time off from work it takes. Their health issues are typically age related not infection.

Re: immunizations

If you're gonna get sick and die, then you're gonna get sick and die. Might as well buy a boat so that you can enjoy your last few months on earth.

Regarding the original poster.

You can't possibly be serious? Please tell me you're joking.

Did you know that the word "gullible" doesn't appear in the Shorter Oxford Dictionary ?

Before writing my post, I checked the calendar to make sure it wasn't April 1st... but I forgot that you guys over there are a few days ahead of us here in the States.

They have something they stick in to people wich protects from dying to any known disease. It's having only one side effect according the ministrators in Texas
