Very true, it is super clean but the economy in FL is pretty weak, unlikely it will sell before I leave.

Only thing stopping me from buying is the location. You'd be hard pressed to keep it on the market for more than a week here in San Diego. They are highly sought after.

If I was not facing two more procedures on my stomach in August I would not sell it, spent a bunch making it reliable and safe.

Another way you can go--I did this--get a marine surveyor to go over, and he can look it over better than you or I. Send you digital shots, give you a full assessment. If it were me, the big thing I would want them to check is possible penetration of water into the foam. It is probably pretty dry, but you never know. People don't bother to seal their hatches and standing water can penetrate the foam. It can become like a water logged brick in there, so I would want someone who knows their stuff to check it out for me. Next, on this site, several guys have given reference to a reasonable shipper who could ship it for you. It's not super cheap, but still, if it were me, I might price it out. Just thinking out loud...

I may go that way, when the fuel tank was replaced it was not foamed back in and limber holes were added to make sure water cannot get trapped anywhere.
But I do get that people worry about wasting a trip to Florida, tried to find someone on this site who would be here and could take a ride or at least a look
but no luck yet. I may have to get a survey.

Should have thought of this yesterday but I was stressing about the medical crap, if anyone knows someone close to Sarasota who knows a bit about boats, it would be nice if they could look at/ maybe go for a ride in mine and let people here know what she is like. I could take her out most anytime until sept hits then I get really busy. I do have some nice holes for snapper/trout/snook.

Thanks

Matt

Well, your Cabo looks just great--and I seriously doubt a surveyor would find anything wrong. And I meant to add that anyone who thinks they may buy the boat--should ask for the surveyor at their expense, not yours. In fact, you "can't win for loosing" cause if you buy a survey up front, then the surveyor works for you--not appropriate, or so I was told by a marine surveyor the one time I used one. If it were me, as a potential buyer, I would hire a marine surveyor, my expense, to go have a look, then report to me the findings. Next step, buy the boat and then get a shipper to bring it over. I did this once, and it all worked out great.

That's a great idea, but I heard (maybe wrong?) that U-haul does not allow you to tow with their trucks. Don't get me wrong, I hope you are right, cause I would like to do the same thing in the near future.

All msgs responded to, will detail the boat tomorrow and will be happy to take pictures of anything I missed.

Was a good thought on the surveyor, you probably do not want him working for me but for you.

If anyone has a pal that knows boats in the Sarasota area I am happy to show the boat to them.

Small update on the boat, had an interested party and went through the boat to get it ready, found a couple things did not work.
First was easy, anchor light bulb was bad 99 cents and it is fixed, second I did not escape so easily, stereo would not turn on.
pulled the panels to get to the back and sure enough, it had power going to it. Head unit was dead - it was a 2000 so it lasted pretty well,
burned up some West Marine coupons and some cash and now it has a brand new loaded head unit. Pandora, Sirius, CD, Bluetooth etc
If the weather cooperates I will be detailing it and rebedding a couple hatch hinges. Now officially there is only one component on the boat I have not replaced and that is the VHF which works fine and I always have a handheld with me anyway. So everything is working well, boat started up after a month easily, I do not think she will
be around much longer, it is an awful lot of super clean boat for the money.

I have used Uhaul to tow broken cars in the past. Tow dolly with a car on it isn't much different than a boat.......

Possible deal pending, survey has been scheduled for Saturday. Will keep post updated if buyer decides against it.
Kind of a headscratcher, went from no buyers to three buyers in 24 hours and none in Florida.

Quick update, had survey done today, other then both of us forgetting to put in the drain plug
Everything went smoothly, as the surveyor said, "I guess the bilge pump works well".
I am not privy to his findings but I do not believe he found much if anything.

Ok, update at last, survey came back clean, Jim came and looked at it/sea trialed it this weekend and liked it so it is officially sold.
Best of luck with your new boat, I will miss her a lot. I knew the first person who took a good look at her would buy her and Jim was first.
