on behalf of a buddy who is searching for his first boat so I apologize in advance if I don't have answers to some of the questions that may come.
He's looking at a boat up here in Canada
and the broker has been forthcoming in disclosing that the boat was caught in a hurricane
is the states and required extensive hull repairs
. A 2015 survey
So the question is why is the boat up here for sale
now. My friend thinks it may be similar to automobiles where an automobile that was written off/salvaged in the states can not be resold in the states so that's why it's here now.
So is anyone aware of any laws like that? I know most would recommend against buying
the boat but if the repairs
were well done and the price
is right it may be worth it? Or are we crazy
