I have an awesome opportunity to buy a boat very very cheaply. However it is winter here in the midwest, and we cant exactly hook up a garden hose to hear it run.
Anyone gamble on buying a boat in winter? What did you do when you looked at it? I was thinking of having him start it up dry, and just replace the impeller come spring, but then id have to re-winterize it and it is freezing here, not exactly what i want to be doing.
He lives in a huge house in a nice neighborhood, and in my experience, means that he was more likely to maintain it well, then the guy living in a shack in the hood. The guy has had it for sale all winter at $3000, and keeps it in a heated garage. With all the snow we are getting, he just wants it out of his garage so he can park in it. He just changed the listing to.... first 1500 gets it. He has a cottage up north, and thats the only time he uses it.
