    Hi everyone,
    I have found a great looking boat on craigslist that ticks all the boxes.
    Is there anyone that would like to or be able to check it out for me? or that could put me in touch with a surveyor that is fairly local?
    I am more than happy to pay for someones time and gas to do this for me.
    I as yet haven't heard from the seller, but i have emailed and am hoping he doesn't think I'm a Nigerian internet scam or something equally as bad.
    And only 50 odd miles to the Baltimore docks
    I'll sit here with my fingers crossed..........
    here's the boat
    1991 SHAMROCK 196 KEEL DRIVE INBOARD DIESEL OPEN FISH

    cheers - Justin

    Okay bit of a shame = but seems no one does live close.
    I have talked to the seller
    And fired off emails to some surveyors for a pre-purchase check.

    Not many of us live that far away from major water, lol... and those of us that do are out of state.

    Is all good really, and in a lot of ways is not really very fair to ask a member to look at a boat unless they are surveyors, if it was me I'd hate to give thumbs up to someone then have the boat shipped big distances for something to go wrong with it.

    I would wait a few more days for a reply from a cult member. There are quite a few that live on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay that I'm sure would not mind taking a look for you. The slow response may be because we just got over a 4-day (for some) holiday and it takes awhile to recover, LOL.
    She definitely is a beauty though. Good Luck.

    "cult member" love it - and yeah i get a bit like that too.
    To tell the truth I forgot about your holiday - a belated but happy Independence day USA !!
    I've now emailed two surveyors and heard back from one, he thought i was a kiwi living in the US, i told him i was a kiwi living in NZ - and haven't heard back from him..........

    I’m planning to go out that way tomorrow. I’m not a surveyor by any stretch, but I could have a look if you’d like.

    Hello Quickstep192 - much thanks but i'm okay now, i have gone and told the owner i am not purchasing the Shamrock - something else has come up. I feel pretty bad about it, but the other option is a model i've always liked.
    Again thank you for the offer of the help - much appreciated
