Maybe the price of gas is making the 2nd home market even stronger. There are already so many nice boats sitting in marinas on the best days of summer ever since gas hit 2 a gallon. Some people figure they can make a house pmt. on what a fill -up costs and have an appreciating asset - then just buy a smaller boat they can keep on hoist or trailer. Don't see as many performance boat people downsizing because its more of a in-the-blood at all costs thing , but the cruiser people are hitting the fence. If you can see,smell,or hear water values will keep going up ...non- renewable resource.
