Default cigarette mistress question

i am really thinking about buying this mistress that i looked at over the weekend .it would be my first cigarette . it has been recently surveyed and no moisture in the boat acording to the paper work . the thing i am not sure about is the floor in cock pit area move a little when i walk on it. is like that in all the mistress or is this one just rotted to ****. oh yeah i didnt have the survey done the seller did but seems very honest and trust worthy

I would have it rechecked. Movement in the floor would make me nervous.

always have your own survey done . . . . always. Floor should not move as you describe, its a plywood cored piece and known to go bad.

You can probably expect to pay about $10-15/foot. I believe thats what we found about 3 yrs ago.

Is the boat in the greater Cleveland area? Like CigRocket said, some one probably knows of it? Also, Greg Group is a good surveyor to use if you buying,.......
