If you send the guy a contract you are going to look like a sheister and will probably scare him away. Take the surveyor for a ride and just deal with it. All part of the game.

the boat I am talking about has painted drives...thats all I will say so as to not stir any ****pot, and I am happy I didnt buy it

BTW

Someone should man up and buy that single 28 Apache with the 3 man.........hell thats one more person than can fit in my boat, bonus! Although I think 90mph might be a bit optimistic.

now back to the original thread sorry for hijack.

I know which one you are talking about. I would love to have that # man set up but I'm pretty sure my wife would divorce me and i would like to be married longer than 4 months

I am pretty sure there are less than 10 Apaches in that setup, might even be the only one

last time I checked (I check every time mine burns my scrambled eggs) there were billions of women......and in that thing you can put one on each side...blonde and brunette

Hey John congrats on the pending sale.

Mind if I ask who the surveyor is?

Do people normally negotiate the price of the boat before getting a marine survey done?

Lakeluvr: Hey stranger, how's it going?

If a buddy dropped by, and wanted to go for a ride in your boat, would you take them out for a spin? You've got a great boat there, and it sounds like a serious buyer who's paying for a third party to survey it. I don't see any red flags with that. Heck, it sits in your dock 40' from your back door. And you get to go on a nice boat ride. You are planning on going on the test ride with the surveyor, right?
