Re: Closing date before sea trial?

A friend of ours, who is new to boating, wants to buy a boat from a similar broker. The broker is pushing to close early but that would be tough to squeeze in a survey and sea trial.

This is in the Boston area (US) so I am not even sure if this is possible. Is there anyone in the Boston area that could let me know about if a sea trial is possible now or you can PM if you rather.

Re: Closing date before sea trial?

Love the rule. Unfortunately, the friend was blinded by a low price. He (luckily, with my husband for a balanced opinion) will be taking one more cross country trip to look at it before making final decision. There is another boat they are looking at as well.

Is the water open enough for a sea trial. I know some boats are shrink wrapped and winterized. Guess they will find out soon.
