New Owner

Well I changed my status today. Have been looking for what I hope is the prefect boat for my cruising plans. Today got my offer accepted on a well kept 1980 Hatteras 42 LRC mark II. Hopefully it's not bad luck to change my status before the survey and sea trial but took my chances. Now just the craziness of preparing for closing and a mad dash across Florida and north when I can squeeze some time out of the ER. When I figure out how to will post pictures.

Spending the day with the former owner to learn the nuances of the boat before she's all mine. Head is swimming with questions

Hopefully, you and he will keep the lines of communication open, but where he can't help, maybe we can. I was still talking to my trawler's new owner five years later.

Thanks. Right now we can't find a surveyor that can get the survey done on a timely basis. They say the demand is high, and most are booking into May already when our Broker has us closing April 29th....

Surveys are overrated, unless;
Well if you need a survey to complete the sale.
Now would be a good time to secure a date for survey and then renegotiate the purchase terms.

I had to have a survey in order to finance my boat and to insure it. Yes, not everyone finances, I realize.

That said, my surveyor wasn’t fabulous....

Luckily I have such a full, varied [5 decade] background regarding pleasure boats... I am quite able to well survey boats on my own, in my own ways. Additionally - For insurance reasons especially, as well as simply for another set of "educated" eyes that might pick up an item or two I misjudged, I hire a professional surveyor to sign their own personal survey result pages.

After I do my own, solo multi hour survey... I make sure I go over the boat again by closely watching the hired surveyor during performance of their survey.

I always clear it up with the surveyor that I will be aboard during their survey and we will have discussion while survey is accomplished. One said he did not want me there... he were not hired.

We docked behind it a few years ago. She just needed some loving.

Found a surveyor, had spoken with another Hatteras 42 LRC owner in the marina and he gave me his surveyor whom he was pleased with. Was able to set up for later next week and coordinate the haul out also Now hoping owner who's emotionally attached to the boat survives the survey.

I just remember it being for sale. Several people looked at it at while we were there. Family came down and cleaned it up and took it for a several day vacation.

This was a couple years ago IF the same one, which I think it might be.
