We take with us wonderful memories of our wedding day

The beautiful view of the Manatee River from the Eagles Nest and Riverfront Room, is what had drawn us to picking Riverhouse, as a venue for our wedding. Cindy and Kris were great to work with.
 
From our ceremony to our reception, it all went smoothly. Our guests enjoyed themselves greatly and also complimented the delicious food. We are very satisfied on how it all went. We take with us wonderful memories of our wedding day.

Two Must-Have Forms For Every Boat Buyer or Seller

Staff & Boat US Wire Report

Regatta Pointe Marina is home to more than 50 new and used brokerage vessels, as well as multiple yacht sales firms (click here to visit their page).  If you are purchasing or selling via a broker, they will help you get the correct paperwork completed and filed.  If you are buying or selling on your own, there are a couple of forms you need to know about.

Behind most successful used-boat transactions, there’s a Purchase Agreement and Bill of Sale that clearly spell out how the boat was bought or sold. The BoatUS Consumer Protection Department now offers both of these documents at no cost online.

“A Purchase Agreement is necessary if you intend to buy a boat, but require that certain things must be done before you will accept the boat, such as a satisfactory marine survey, specific repairs, and the ability to finance or insure the boat,” said BoatUS Consumer Protection Director Charles Fort. “It also describes both parties’ obligations. Once a buyer accepts the boat, the bill of sale is used as proof of purchase. You can download and print both forms 24-hours a day.”

Fort also added that while the two forms were designed to meet the needs of most buyers and sellers, they may want to seek legal advice if there are any questions about whether the forms are appropriate for their situation.

The BoatUS Consumer Protection Bureau offers a dispute mediation service, the only national boating complaint database, and provides consumer-oriented information to help boaters make smart buying decisions. For more go to BoatUS.com/consumer.
