Re: Out Shopping

Ok. The offer of $100k countered at $113k. I have countered back at $105k but that's about how much I plan to pay.

Survey complete. Boat looks great! Only one major problem: engine hour meter is inoperative. Broker claims less than 350 hours but no proof. Engine looks, sounds and performs great. Oil looks great. Broker also indicates 350 hours is about right for this year (2006). Otherwise, no significant issues. Thoughts?

Did the surveyor use a pyrometer on the engine? If so, how were the temps at 2000 and wide open? For what it's worth, my 1990 37.5 legend doesn't even have an engine meter. I think with a 2006 sailboat, presuming a 50% engine run rate and a 50% sail rate, as cruisers typically do, I think you will be fine.

I would not let a $50 meter stand in my way of completing this transaction.

If you have some evidence to throw doubt upon the 350 hour estimate, and are greatly concerned, you could have a thorough engine survey done. Same with the rigging.

Re: Out Shopping

You could figure on 50 hours engine time per season for typical Puget Sound summer sailing. I wouldn't be concerned with the engine hour meter so long as the engine runs strong and doesn't blow smoke etc.

Re: Out Shopping

Yeah, too low hours can be as bad as high anyway....
