Sometimes pushing the chair away from the computer and walking the docks pays dividends. You are located in an area where there are brokers displaying their wares on the office glass.

Nothing beats eyes on. Then go to a few boat shows and climb aboard. Lift the hatches, educate yourself about engines, heads, stoves, varnish, maintenance and perish the thought - seamanship.

You'll get there, but use those Nikes rather than the backend of your Levis. Talk directly to those who know a few things, walk around the boatyards and enjoy the most fun part of boat buying, the hunt.
