The fine print: 
You know, I do the best I can to get all the stuff on this site down properly, the way it's supposed to be so I keep myself and my friends and family out of trouble, but you know what?  Sometimes the earth shifts in its orbit around the sun or my wife yells at me or I stay out too late or a dog bites me or the north pole moves or Alzheimer's takes over or I have deliriums of deranged insight or something totally unexpected happens that screws things up--nothing intentional, you understand, but sometimes... So, though to the best of my knowledge everyhting you read here is correct and reliable, be smart, don't take my word for it, do your own thorough investigation.  Everybody's entitled to their own opinion.  Suppliers change their prices, availability varies, boats from China get the slows etc.  Maybe I'm just another raving maniac blathering idiot like your brother-in-law.  Read the fine print--even if its published by the FAA-- check the logs, get a title report, get a pre-purchase inspection done by a mechanic you know and trust, check NTSB records for accident reports etc.  Use an escrow company.  Because Everything you see here is only my opinion, is AS IS, WHERE IS with no guarantees or warrantees of any kind whatsoever, expressed or implied, not usually, but sometimes depending on what "is" is.  What you sees "is" probably what you gets, though one never knows, do one?  Do your homework, then decide. Yes, an attorney advised me to put this statement here to protect me from who knows what kinda legal baloney I could get tangled up in otherwise.  Life in the fast lane ain't always what its cracked up to be.  Etc etc etc.  Sheesh! This is disgusting stuff!  Better go flyin' and get my mind right...
