Need help Bay area, might buy an Ariel there

Would anyone in the Bay area familiar with Ariels or similar be willing to do an initial cursory inspection for me, of one for sale?

It's in Oakland, I'm on the East Coast, hoping to avoid too much plague time jetsetting.

PM me please.

Also can anyone recommend surveyors in the area? here publicly is fine

And a reasonably priced way to do escrow, for if I get that far along? Talking under $10K. . .

Source for sample contracts protecting the buyer?


Thanks in advance, mod feel free to relocate if this is the wrong spot

Where is she, what is she named and what do you want to know?

Latitude 38 is our local magazine, they have a web site, and there are lots of ads that you could shop a surveyor...

I'm afraid maybe my OP is already over-asking!

But #1 is someone to confirm that the boat actually exists, in the location the PO has stated, and ideally that she looks OK from a quick look over.

It may not be a lot of money from the POV of many here, but it's more than I'm willing to take too many chances with.

Tell me what Marina — I’m in Marina Village in Alameda. It it’s close enough I’ll look it over.
