It appears we now have a sea trial and survey date of 7/8.

I was not able to get any of the mechanics recommended from this site to ever return my calls, so I went with a local guy. I just have to pay an extra 4 hour travel time. Bummer, but he comes very highly recommended.

Fingers crossed.

Thanks again for everyone's time and information.

DENIED!
Out of water survey was about what I expected.
Put the boat in the water for sea trial and couldn't get it in gear.��

Sounds like the price needs to be much lower

Jason,

The owner still tried to negotiate a deal. I told him the boat was now a project, and offered him half his asking price. He declined my offer.

Owner just contacted me and said he would like to see if we can still make this deal happen.
He is going to have someone address the transmission issue, which I believe may be a linkage related.
A few of the gauges didn't work either. Not sure that will be an easy fix.

I again made him a "project" offer, but he declined.

I have an accepted offer on a 7M.

Sounds like a good bargaining position. Have him fix everything and still pay less as obviously it needs work. or at least not maintained to the level you would expect for the price he is asking.

Jason,

Once owner says he is ready, I will bring my surveyor back up there and hopefully sea trial. Having oil samples taken too.
This would be a lot easier for me if you would just sell me your boat. I'd take it with the broken windshield.

Sorry I replaced the windshield with plexiglass on Wednesday so I don't need to sell the boat anymore
