I agreee with Isabeel, You can't be to concerned with depreciation or you wouldn't be doing this. You have to love for what it is,or you'll hate it.
I don't understand all of GLH's comments though. When your talking about the number of boats for sale, I think that is just a function the larger number of boats that Fountain builds every yr vs cig. production.
Also the the camparison of a 2000 cig vs. a holdover fountain isn't exactly fair. As one is still a new boat and one a used boat. We all know that a new anything is going to lose more value than used. Just my .02, they are both great boats, Just the old Chevy vs. Ford theme.
