As a long time guest viewer I've learned that someone out here in these forums
can help me. I'm trying to buy "the boat" in La Paz
, from Oregon
. I've bought a number of boats before, never sight unseen, and never imagined I could. All of course before Covid and travel restrictions, and required quarantine from work
if I go...
Since this boat
is to be the one my family
and I liveaboard
for (hopefully) years to come, it's even more inconceivable that I purchase
without stepping foot on it first.
That's where you come in. I'm hoping that some wonderful soul in La Paz
would be willing to help out a stranger, and take a look see before I make a binding offer. The broker is, I'm sure, trustworthy and fair; yet ultimately biased. Hopefully you could be my independent, objective eyes. I'm familiar with the type of boat
, and I'm sure it's floating, but need someone to confirm for me that it's going to remain that way and the pictures aren't hiding anything too sinister.
I'm not looking for a survey
from you, just that first cursory peak around we've all likely done dozens of times.
Also, it'd be great if you didn't "snag her from under me."
So, if you might be willing, please let me know and we can make a necessary greeting. Really hoping you all can appreciate the times and the experience of buying
, to help a fellow sailor out.
Guarantee of beers when we make it down there and meet in person!
