I think this is an excellent thread. We need to find alternative ways to buy great products at lower prices.
I love boating, but the price of boats, motors, drives (#6) is already getting friggin rediculous. I don't have the money to buy a $300K+ boat per say, but I have a real "problem" with spending alot of money on something that will be worth half it's purchased value in 5 yrs of use
What really makes me wonder.......why does it usually cost over $20K to make a 700HP+ motor in a boat---but you can get them much cheaper with these stats for a car?????? I know a marine motor is "marinized", but come on, these dmn things cost a fortune.
