  1. Hmmmm well I’m thinking I’ll leave NZ late next year, but is much for sale late in the year? In other words is there a month or two when lots on the market as perhaps I should aim to come then. Thanks for your thoughts.
  2. Hi again, deep pockets sounds worrying, I’ve seen another possible boat, with an RN DM2 but is the price differential really way too wide compared with other engines in the canal boat range of 40-50,000 range.? I will have money for upkeep but not sure of earnings so need to be careful. And I’ve no idea really of comparative engines.
  3. And depending on age etc quite legitimately not have RCD but this is late built , Its funny I’ve been told GET A HOUSE as I’m such a stickler, heehee just trying to be diligent! But very interesting and will no doubt begin to appreciate the casual boater attitudes which are charming if not unnerving.
  4. Yes in my understanding if it was a self build or for multiple person onboard hire purposes. But this was built by a boat builder and sold to private party 2002 so should have complied but somehow no mark or paperwork
  5. Thanks for that yep I think at 49.500 and low spec, though pretty, its been overpriced, esp with regards the hit expected on resale.
  6. Thanks all, I’ve since discovered along with no paperwork incl receipts of work or goods etc the boat is not CE marked, no boat manual, no RCD, am told this not an issue and will only affect resale. Interested to hear thoughts but feel it’s last straw for that boat. And really hearing you all about buying at a distance. I need to follow the forums more to learn and then either be there or get someone in the know to help I’d say. I would have thought that it leaves you vulnerable to having to prove it’s up to RCD and modify if not, but since it’s had several sets of safety certifications , advice was no one would care.
  7. Hi , I’ve seen this boat appearing rusty in the picture. https://www.apolloduck.com/boat/steelcraft-70-traditional/605970 And wonder does this 100£ a foot approximate price include de-rusting to paint or is that more money and if so any idea on extra cost? Thanks.
  8. Yes thanks for the above comments they make sobering reading. And make me wonder if I walk away whether I will find many other options with a better paper history as it seems generally a hit and miss affair in respect to a boats proof of provenance.
  9. Sorry was rushing out of house and should have written undated not unsigned and thanks for the further page of comments which I missed and will read now.
  10. Does anyone have any particular thoughts on the bill of sale being unsigned.This is a principal worry for me.
  11. Thanks for replies. Both Points taken about brokers. Sorry I should have been clearer my “child” is in her 30s and will be living with partner on boat following in car so can continually cruise and get to where she needs to go. And my younger children will only be with me later on the boat not unaccompanied.
  12. Thanks.. interesting , good to hear another perspective.
  13. Is that standard for Steelcraft boats : the water tank built into floor?
