In one sense yes. But truth be know its taken seven months of diligent work
, due diligence, walking boat
yards, traveling thousands of miles, talking with boat
yard mechanics, climbing through the bowels of a variety of boats in a variety of condition, listening to more than I care to remember selling brokers spin, lengthy interviews with owners, failed surveys and a ton of persistence get to the point we know what we are looking for, what is reasonable and how to successfully work
through all the challenges of putting together a deal. For me, this has been pretty much a full time job for the past seven months. Kinda like climbing a mountain peak.
Enjoyable, frustrating at times but well worth the experience. Hopefully we have dodged the many pitfalls awaiting an unsuspecting or uninformed buyer.
The saying "One has to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince." comes to mind here.
