We put up earnest money, and signed a contract for our current boat, sight unseen,
however I spent at least 4 hours on the phone with the very patient broker, about 3 hours of which was facetime, with him crawling through the boat realtime. I also spent about 6 or 7 hours on the phone with the Seller prior to putting in the offer.
So, although we had not physically seen the boat, we DID know a lot about it.
Then flew from Kentucky to Washington State for inspection, survey, haulout and sea trial. It was as represented. Survey found nothing that hadn't already been disclosed.
The only hiccup was lost oil samples, which had to be redone.
