Good morning. My wife and I just had our offer accepted on a 47 Commander that lives in St. Paul MN. We are flying out this weekend to do a visual inspection. All things goes as planned and we will follow up with surveys and eventual breaking down and shipping. We have been in contact with Bob Allred and he is working on a quote. Any and all advice is welcome as we want to make sure she makes the journey with as few obstacles as possible. Thanks in advance. I’m sure there will be plenty more questions. Thank you.
John and Kim Leavell
What a great find!
Not wanting to be rude but where in Idaho is there a lake big enough to fit that big boat? Looked on a map and most seem to be on the smaller side.
I've been watching that boat - the engine room and salon floor look fantastic.
Congratulations on your purchase. I hope your move goes smoothly and you have many years of happy and smooth sailing with her.
John, when you go to see it in person, jump up and down on the aft deck over the master cabin. Someone has removed the diagonal ceiling supports in the aft stateroom, I don't know how much rigidity they add to that deck - but they were originally there for a reason.
I would also look for signs of stress where the dinghy is mounted.
Good luck, the 47 is an amazing boat.
DAMN! THAT'S A NICE LOOKING BOAT
