I'm just starting to get quotes for this, but if anyone with delivery

I think the delivery
of my new boat would be the most terrifying part of the buying
process. Horror stories abound.
I would start by asking FP whom others have used that may be available as references
- I mean owners that are contactable.
If you used a broker I would contact the broker for the same information.
With a new top dollar boat I would not scrimp at this point and I would pay for quality and seriously vett the candidates.
No offence to any of the delivery guys here but a random throw off the internet
would be my last choice for a delivery crew.
How many delivery skippers do you think will show you their "not so satisfied" customer references
Finally, I am with another poster - I would definitely figure out how to be on the boat for the majority of the delivery...
