Here was my response to your question. i wasn't saying that it wasn't a legit quesiton... just the wrong thread...
You are missing the exact point of my original question. I stated what the BOOK is! I KNOW THE VALUE OF THE BOAT! (what you are saying I don't know by your statement)
I WAS ASKING what to OFFER on the boat! OFFERING A PRICE ON A PURCHASE OF A BOAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ME INSURING CLIENTS BOATS.
I do think the tone and the statement you said is absolutly RUDE and uncalled for. My clients here on OSO can attest to my knowledge of my industry and that i know plenty more about insurance on boats than most boat owners do...
I am soooo sorry that I don't know a ton about being a boat BUYER. BUYING a boat and being an INSURANCE AGENT have very little to do with one another. I know the systematic process and steps needed to purchase (which is all i need to know for insurance), but that isn't what I'm talking about.
Apparently on OSO there are such things as a DUMB question and I do take offense to your comment because your statement doesn't make ANY sense. If you read the original question right then you wouldn't have even made your statement.
I would appreciate if you drop your comment and not respond. These guys are helping me, I don't need someone on here when I am asking for help to belittle me or judge me based on my boat buying abilities or inabilities, they have nothing to do with how good of an insurance agent I am.
Just curious... do you have every single value of every single boat ever made in the US memorized... i sure as heck don't... does that make me a bad agent?
