The condition of the boat is in good condition the previous owners took very well care of the boat i do have lots of pitures of the boat if need to look at.
Can you post a link to the photos or the original ad? Is it gas or diesel? Older boat like that you might want to sign up for vessel assist if you haven't already done so in case you have engine trouble. Doubt you or anyone with you wants to sail into a slip and a spur of the moment tow will cost you.

Another voice for towing insurance. Just one little tow is more than the insurance cost per year.

GET THE INSURANCE, as the owner of a small boat I can tell you it will break. Get it now and keep it current.

Re: Looking For Experienced Sailor To Move A Boat

The tow insurance is like $150-170 for a year of coverage. If you break down offshore and have to be towed in the bill will be AT LEAST $1000 and probably a lot more depending on where you are and where you want to be towed to.

If you have the insurance the tow is pretty much covered. I don't leave the mooring without it. Super cheap compared to the bill that one could receive.

The very first time I took my boat by myself the engine shut down from an air leak. I was heading out of Chula Vista and not even 1/4 mile out of the basin. I turned around and sailed it back into the basin and anchored up right there in the middle and called for the tow. I had the insurance. I ended up getting a couple of good folks in dinghies to help me to a pump out slip on the end of the dock. The tow company showed up a few hours later and moved me from the end of one dock to my dock which was like 8 docks down IN THE SAME BASIN. They send you a notice of what the charges would have been if you didn't have the insurance. For moving me less than a mile the charge was almost $700!!!!!!

If you don't have the insurance its high seas robbery.

Re: Looking For Experienced Sailor To Move A Boat

Black_magic, join BoatUS and get their unlimited tow insurance. Peace of mind for a tow, a jump start, emergency fuel delivery, even emergency dive service. Hope you never need it but good to know you have it.
