If this is the boat, seems like it has a history. It may have done the Northwest Passage. Northwestpassage2011 dot com: Arctic 2012 Expedition - Request for Crew

Normally I'd be among the most skeptical but the boat is intriguing. It's a Bruce Roberts design. No idea who built it but guessing perhaps a gulf coast commercial builder. Don't know it's current condition or what it looks like today. I suggested to him earlier that the marina could probably have someone look at it and would probably know a bit more about it. I think it's worth a bit more time and exploration and some direct questions such as why it is where it is, why it's for sale, and why the broker who was chosen.

It sounded crazy and it may still be, but it might, even though perhaps not good odds of it, just be good.

Find someone who will inspect the boat for you. You can pay a marine surveyor to travel to the boat for an at the dock inspection but that is expensive. You could find someone from a local boat yard that might be able to give a report to you. The idea is to hire someone local who is unbiased to save you the expense and time of a trip yourself.
