Thank you for all of your posts!
Had the Short haul at C & D Marine Services Copiague, NY.
They have been doing all the maintenance on the boat for the last 7+ years.
TERRIFIC OUTFIT! I canít say enough about them. Indeed it was a snapped hose clamp that caused the issue, and due to itís close proximity to the fire suppression system sensor, Haylon was deployed. The engine compartment was cleaned and in better shape than at our first viewing of the boat. They treated us like family.
Met the Owner and the Surveyor, JIM DIAS of Connecticut on Friday morning.
Happily the Broker was busy and did not attend!
Jim was just Top Notch! He was very thorough, direct, and very good at sharing his vast knowledge. His agility moving through and around the boat was amazing. IF YOU NEED A GREAT SURVEYOR IN CT, NY, RI,MA,NH,ME. HE IS YOUR GUY!
Sea trial occurred Saturday due to remnants of Hurricane Michael blowing through Friday. The boat performed really well and Jim Dias was all smiles after emerging from the engine compartment. A short list of a few suggested improvements was discussed, but the consensus was that we will proceed with the purchase pending the oil sample study.
I canít wait to get her cleaned, shiny and to add a well needed Womanís Touch to make her our own.
Thanks to All!
We will keep you informed, your input is greatly appreciated
