fewer boats for sale or everybody are just sitting on their boat till market goes up????

I'm not trying to get banned from the site ..... but I'm wondering if OSO's readership (is that a word?) isn't down some.

I remember 1300 boats being in the classifieds 2 years ago.

What engines??????? It is the end of the season in many parts of the country. Stuff won't be selling a lot until people figure out exactly what they want to do over the winter. The other thing is the trust factor. People should have their screen name attached to their ad. I PM'd a guy about a pair of 500hp's a while back. Said he wasn't on OSO and just listed the engines and didn't provide much more info. I wasn't gonna buy some engines 1000 miles away that might not be what he said. He said 200hrs, but maybe they really had 300 hard hours.

Engines: I have 2 engines listed for sale as "best offer" and still no action. There are some ads that are always the top viewed and they are not even complete motors, go figure.

Drives: Everyone wants a Bravo XR for an Alpha price.

Electronics: Waste of space.

Trucks and Tow vehicles: Some cool looking trucks, and some scattered cars and I think I saw a Harley.

And a couple of other catagories that are a bunch of whatever.

I know the OSO classifieds have worked in the past, I mean that's how I bought my boat.

Are the times changing? Is everyone so rich with the real estate market that they all buy new?
my brother put his 242 in there for cheap...asking $11.5 and never even got a call....he has more than that in the 540....after ad ran out here he listed at boat trader and phone rang off the wall and sold the boat for more than he was asking....i don't get it...
