    You'd be better served deleting that post. Robert has been in the business for many, many years, and has a great reputation. He has helped out many members here.

    Re: Boat Show Pricing

    So with all the professionals out there . What is a good deal on an ordered boat. If the MSRP is $380,000 what should I be shooting for once I decide to pull the trigger? $300,000, $280,000 $250,000? When I bought my Fountain 2 years I got 32 % off MSRP on that ordered boat. Thanks Mike

    Humility, a never ending quest to learn and the ability to change the way you do business are what will keep a company strong.

    Even old dogs can learn new tricks.
    Very true.

    Re: Boat Show Pricing

    The whole thing about something being charged at $.99 or $1.98 started back in the 17-1800's. Store owners priced items this way, because worker's would HAVE to make change, therefore they had to open the cash register. Otherwise - it was an even $1.00, they didn't have to make change, didn't have to open the "Till", and could pocket the money with no record of a sale.
    Don't ask me how I know this stuff, but it's true.

    I still look at a $39,995 boat as about $45,000 by the time it's said and done (title, tax, Prep (and prep is a bunch of crap - I have to pay a fee to have the boat clean and ready when I take delivery????)).

    But, for the general population - yes, $39,995 sounds better...
