If you look at that Selene, take a moisture meter. Top of the line Skipper Tramex will set u back $500+ (there are cheaper options) but it will pay for itself with the first boat you look at & save $$ Survey surprises. Good luck - the right boat is out there!
Poppycock. Here's a nice, stabilized DeFever 44 for $209,000. You had to add $100K after buying your boat? Did you have it surveyed before buying? If so, didn't the survey reveal the deficiencies? Sir, there are plenty of boats out there that meet the criteria and in that price range!
