    I wont cover up a real flaw in a boat, I would rather pass than perhaps cause someone in the future injury. But then I see someone else buy the boat and cover up a major structural flaw with bondo and sell it to unsuspecting person. So buyers beware, it is easy to cover up major flaws or even fire damage. The fiberglass hull is damaged internally and has lost most of its strength.

    Wow, I am on holidays and just checked the forum. Couldn't believe the amount of great feedback you guys sent.

    Let's say that I do know these are tough times but I am not afraid of risks if planned carefully and throughly. I have been an entrepeneur before and I do know that market is key and Portugal is not the competitive US market and although we are much lower on the food chain, we have one of the highest penetration of high-end mobile phones and Ferraris per capita. Go figure :)

    It's a dream of mine and it's something I will definitly do.

    Thanks for the great feedback and help. I will probably contact a few of you offline.

    Take care
    João
