Thanks again to all the input from the members here.

Please don't buy a boat unseen or hire a surveyor without talking to him and his references. Advertised boats that are priced below market are never going to be good buys. They get that way by being passed over by knowlegeable buyers. Brokers are not into the charity business. If you can find a boat in Hawaii, it was at least sound enough to get that far!

Engine Size

Have you considered the size of the engine on this boat. Yanmar 27hp seems a little small for ocean crossing? I would be happier with double the size. Given that you are not going to undertake work in Cali. You may need to rely on your engine.
