If you somehow don't end up buying this vessel, I imagine that there are at least 10 others on this forum who will.



And probably at least 35 TF members (like me) who are looking at your boat's $114,000 price tag and looking at what they paid for their boats, and thinking that you are one smart son of a gun.


Finally, I agree with you, adding a bowthruster to a single screw vessel is a great idea. From looking at the photos and now hearing about the survey, that and the a/c may be the only modifications you ever need to make to YOUR NEW BOAT!


Congratulations!


Cheers,
Mrs. Trombley

Given potential issues with retro-fitting ducting, and various routing issues you may encounter anyway... you may find two AC units could be more efficient than a single. Just a thought...

Around here, AC is a must during summer, and reverse cycle heating can easily extend our normal local boating season to at least March-November.

I've lived in AC since I was 16, hubby since he was 0. It's not just FL, got to have it in NC, got to have it on the Chesapeake, got to have in in NY. Our boat is another home and must have it and heat too and what Chris said about even reverse cycle heating can really extend the season. It turns decent days into good days and the ones that would be frigid it makes decent. My boating is influenced by the condition of the seas but not going to be influenced by an exceptionally hot or cold day that pops up.

As far as A/C down south goes.... More is always better!
Congrats!

Thanks for the input on the AC issue, gang. I hadn't considered the no seeum issue, and was thinking I could just count on a good breeze a lot of the time. It's currently in the top five on the list of boat improvement projects. She actually already has a propane forced air furnace for heat, and I think I may be able to just tie into the existing duct work, but I'm not sure. That'll be a project for another thread, I'm sure.

Following this thread and seeing, no feeling, your excitement and appreciation of what you have bought, I think the seller is probably smiling and very comfortable with who has taken over.
Congratulations.

Congratulations.
The owner said he was glad I was the one to take her. I only hope I can keep her up to the standard he's set.

When your only issue is a fuel filler hose, you are on a winner. You chose well! When`s closing?

Congratulations, Dave! She surveyed well and it sounds like you were pretty much expecting that. We look forward to stories of your adventures on her.
