Default Any 38 owners willing to give a test ride.

I am just wondering if anyone in Michigan is willing to take me for a quick ride in one. I am close to buying one, but need to put money down on the ones I'm looking at to get them in the water. I will pay for gas of course. Preferably an 02 or newer, unless 01 has the final hull design that would work too.

Anyone who won't let you sea trial a boat before buying it is trying to hide something. It seems crazy to me that if someone wants to sell you a boat that they wouldn't jump at the chance to get you on it in the water to seal the deal. I'd be cautious...

The few I am looking at will go in if I am buying it, but they need serviced first.....they need a deal written up to do it and something would then probably have to go wrong for me not to buy

Uncle C is always looking for a few good men to go on the boat if you no what I mean.... How come I haven't got an invite yet? U cancel e.c. on us and won't even offer a constellation ride?
