Yes I did....for me and I do realize I am very conservative when it comes to money ( read cheap...
), the rule would be until I can actually see the darn thing and touch it there is not a chance of one cent changing hands. these days there is just too much funny business going on with twists and turns that you never see coming.
Good luck on your other deal. Have you had the surveyor look at it yet ?
No, after the engine is installed, seller is moving it back to the Charlestown marina where be berths it. The sale will be done with them as his broker. Survey should happen within the next week to week and a half.
If the purchase goes thru, one of my winter projects will be to modify the shower enclosure. I'm a big guy at 6'4" and 300 pounds. As my son's like to say, I have a cat a##, and it is a tight squeeze into the shower. The rest of the head is fine. Any suggestions re this project. I would also like to put some kind of moulded steps up to the fly bridge in place of the ladder. Easier on me and then my four legged crew member could join me in the bridge.
As for being conservative with money, or as you put it cheap, I spent 22 years in the operations side in Wall Street and in public accounting dealing with brokers and traders. During that time I NEVER met one who was not conservative with their own money.
