DW and I owned a boat for 4 years. We live on Vancouver Island with easy access to some great destinations, but I was never comfortable on it. I love the RV and where it takes us. I guess it comes down to a personal choice.

We currently live on our 42' trawler in Fl. Have for 9 years. Have 15,000 miles underway, including 4 trips to Bahamas, 2 up to the Ohio river ( old stopping grounds), one to Chattanoga , 5 winters in Fl Keys. WE HAVE LOVED it. But DW is ready to try some land cruising,so boats for sale. Living on a boat is a fantastic way of life as rving will be too. Hope you find the boat of your dreams. The saying is "you only have so many days on this life--but those spent at sea don't count against you". If you want to Pm me and I'll give you what little advice I've gleaned.

This will be my first boat purchase. I am considering a 1992 Sea Ray 270 Weekender. Comes with a 10,000 lb trailer that I cant use.
The boat is very clean inside and out. There are no electronics or generator on the boat. It has 370 hours on it.
The owner said he had a previous issue with the boat bogging down after running for about 20 minutes. Mechanic could not id the problem. Owner said he got the boat back from the mechanic and ran a compression test, discovered one valve with low compression, sprayed Sea Foam in it and it runs fine now. So owner deduces it was a sticky valve due to ethanol in gas.
He's asking $14,500.

Sounds like a nice boat. I owned a Searay 370, 12 years ago and loved it. Electronics advance so fast (they're old models the day you buy them), I wouldn't worry about that. Lack of AC an Gen could be an issue depending on type of cruising. DW and little dog would want those on hot Fl days. Also dockage. Trailers can make easier to move and store. Good luck.
