Rippem you make good sense, Just the way I think. Iam a buyer and most I deal with know this. I bought my last three boats here local brand new and when it was time to buy a bigger boat (twins) my dealer here in town took me for granted and tried to stick it to me. I Tried to givem the buisness and told them iam going elsewhere and I did saved 10K on the exact same boat (in Dallas) 2-3 hours away. When the dealer called and said they were ready I toldem it was too late already got one..hehe..they were pissed! called me a traitor??among other things.. and to never ever bring that boat around there dealership!!?? After all that $$$ I spent on three new boats in 4years..I would think they would have said you bring that thing here if you need service Mr.Kelly we want you business back with us...HELL i gave a chance they blew it and I told them they would never see me or my $$$ again or the other business I had brought them..Talk about dealers seeing the small picture..
