My First Vessel on my Own
After sulking over the loss of my boat, I decided to put my big girl pants on and buy myself a vessel. I didn’t think it would be that difficult. After all, I’ve purchased cars in the past. I didn’t think it would be that much different. My stars! I was so confused, even after my brother came with me. Actually, I think he made it a little more confusing. I hope he doesn’t read this. If you do, sorry Mark.
As I said earlier, I was always worried about how pretty it looked, the number of people it slept comfortably and if there was sufficient deck space for sunbathing. I had no idea of all of the different systems and stuff that were involved in not only buying, but owning a boat. When I asked the owner of the marina where our boat was docked in the past what I need to do before I purchased my first boat on my own. He said call Simex Marine – Marine Surveyors.
I did and I am so happy that I listened to the marina owner. The first boat that I fell in love with was an absolute nightmare. They didn’t advise me not to buy it, but they gave me a very detailed pre-purchase inspection document and I was overwhelmed. I had no idea what some of these systems even were, but unfortunately, the boat was so ragged out that I would be upside down as soon as I would have purchased it. Simex Marine – Marine Surveyors saved me a boatload of money. Pardon the pun.
Finally, I came across a smaller boat that would work well for my needs. The owner took me out on the water and it seemed to run quite well. When I asked if I could have a pre-inspection performed, he told me to “have at it”. Simex Marine – Marine Surveyors did their inspection and darn near everything was great. I made the deal and have not regretted it. I appreciate the marine services that Simex performs. By the way, they did the marine insurance survey for me as well. If you’re buying a vessel, call Simex Marine – Marine Surveyors. You will not be disappointed.
