    Is he a Dukh Driver? Does he run the go kart track?

    If youíve got a real emotional investment in the boat, and donít need to get every possible dollar for it, you can be more selective about a prospective ownerís intentions and capabilities. Itís like putting your child up for adoption.
    I own several small boats that I built and like and havenít used much recently. If and when they leave me, theyíll go to someone worthy.

    My last wooden sailing boat i sold to a gentleman who appreciated her & looked after her, in turn he sold her to a guy who owns a large marina, I am told she looks great!
    On the other hand our subsequent yacht an Anderson 22 (Grp)... I did a massive refit to sort her out & when we outgrew her after 7 years I sold her to a fellow club member.
    Nice bloke but he has trashed her with terminal neglect over the last ten years. The worst thing is she was immaculate & her mooring is 50 yards away from our current boat. So every time we leave the mooring i have to see her covered in bird crap & green grime. I have to look the other way.
