pulling the trigger on a 3207

Postby Ranger34 » September 19th, 2014, 12:38 pm

New to the forum. Just about ready to pull the trigger on a 83 3207 AC.

Just wondering if there are specific issues or areas that I need to inspect as typical trouble spots?

I'm currently living on Kentucky Lake and I frequently watch loopers heading south. so if anybody needs anything feel free to drop me a line on here.

I'm looking forward to the years ahead with the Carver Aft cabin this will be my first big one.

Get a survey, and WALK if anything comes up. There is a ton of these on the market, don't get stuck with a rotten one. Remember - they need to sell, you only want to buy.

Your insurance will likely require a survey. Since you are already familiar with boating, look for all the obvious items: all electronics work, motors run smooth, boat rides smooth, genset works, look for swelling at all attachment points (railings, etc.), inspect the bilge and all pumps, head and drain ports.

If you are reasonably satisfied, make an offer contingent on the results of a survey. It is more wise to pay for your survey and walk away from a disaster, than to make a purchase and found out later it may have been a mistake!

Good luck and happy boating.
