Protections are few when buying used!

With the fall boat buying season approaching, buyers looking for a pre-owned boat can often find deals as sellers, not wanting to take on the upcoming expense of winter storage fees, are in the bargaining mood.  However, BoatUS, estimates that 65,000 boats were damaged or lost when Superstorm Sandy struck.  Now, nearly a year later, some of those boats are being sold on the used boat market, either in “as is” condition or after repairs have been made.  That’s not necessarily a bad thing, if the seller is truthful about any past damage.  However, the problem exists when seller’s fail to fess up to a boat’s true condition.  So how does a used boat buyer go into a purchase with eyes wide open?  The BoatUS Consumer Affairs Department has these used boat buying tips-each may be an indication  the boat has experienced hurricane damage.

LGPC Washing BoatWith a unanimous vote, the Lake George Park Commission (LGPC) passed a resolution yesterday that sets it firmly down the path of mandatory inspections for all trailered boats launching in Lake George. This is another important milestone along the road to protecting Lake George from aquatic invasive species. The resolution enables the Commission to develop regulations that would require all boats and trailers to be inspected by certified Park Commission inspectors, and if the boat fails inspection, it would need to be decontaminated at a Park Commission wash station.
