Re: Engine has not been run in three years

The boat ended up being sold before I could get to it!

There'll be other boats to look at. Good luck and fair winds.

Re: Engine has not been run in three years

I think the most frustrating thing about boat buying isn't even stuff like this... it's even getting calls back from brokers, or setting up meetings to see boats that were sold two months ago, or being told "you can't get in because we don't have keys", or no keys to the lockers, or "don't touch anything".

I know that brokers need to ensure that the clients boat does not get damaged by overly agressive buyers but the sellers need to expect that they are going to run into buyers that are going to do more than look at the color of the curtains.

Re: Engine has not Been Run in Three Years

If I was to ever buy a different boat, I would definitely want to look into all lockers, compartments and get my hands on whatever I can.

maybe some sellers are hoping you stop looking once you see the curtains.
