It makes me wonder how bad the exterior is, considering that they didn't show any pictures of it? Still, if I was in the neighborhood, I'd be curious enough to consider checking it out.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I recently posted a couple of boats in the "Free, or close to free!" forum on this website that people might find interesting. I'm not sure if anyone is still monitoring that fourum. I've posted a fair number of boats there over the months and none of them get much in the way of discussion. Maybe I should just post them here.

I just hope they've taken away the previous owner's...er...remains!

Thanks! Lurked for years without an account, I figured it was time to make one.

I'm a little hesitant on this one, as the price is ~1/2 what other Baba 30s are going for. Need to go look at it I guess.

Always get a survey

There’s plenty of reasons for and against getting a professional survey.

Everyone will have a different skill set and level of experience with boats, but self-surveying is more than appropriate in a lot of cases.

If you have enough experience you’ll see more then a surveyor will. It’s up to you. But I see things surveyors miss.

Surveys tend to be full of the “ bleeding obvious “ “ the flexible gas pipes must be replaced “. Yep, thanks , I can read the date code too
