Protect yourself! By decoding the HIN (hull id number) of a boat (something most insiders can't do, by the way) you can make sure you're buying what you think you're buying. As one example of how you'll protect yourself, I'll show you how to make sure you're not buying a boat that's older than you've been told--something I've seen happen many times.

Inspect It Yourself

I can't tell you how many times I've seen experienced boaters miss important (and expensive!) details when checking out a boat. Their experience isn't inspecting boats for a living--mine is. I've created a thorough step-by-step procedure to help you eliminate boats from your short list. One technique I'll show you here has saved people thousands of dollars when it came time to negotiate price.

Salespeople only tell you what's right about a boat. With this special report, you can tell what's wrong with it.
