[QUOTE=gamayun;2937788]Shouldn't be a problem unless you can see a whole forest growing under the boat. Do you plan to sail it or only live on it? Perhaps a potentially bigger issue than the condition of the bottom paint could be buying
a boat without hauling it to see what else might be going on down there. But, the answer to that likely depends on the selling price
and how comfortable you are with risk.
Welcome to the forum, Ron! Let us know how it goes with the boat purchase
. Thanks, I plan on having a survey
done , I need to for insurance
and I do plan on using the boat . But trying to save a little cash at the moment. The boat is a good purchase but more than I wanted to spend. Thatís the reason for foregoing the bottom paint for now.
