the "desperation" in their add description doesnt seam to have any relationship to their asking price. one in particular i called on had 300+ hours on 525's and the guy got defensive about it right off the bat saying they dont need freshened or rebuilt. that might be true but they WILL before i could resale the boat 2-3 years from now. that was 6 months ago. its still for sale

i think its a good idea but when a person see "owner wants it gone now" makes you think they are desperate. you will get alot of low ball offers.

I think I may know what boat you are talking about. If it's the same one I'm thinking of I had a nice conversation with him too. It was about a year ago when it first went on the market at about 20-25k over what it should reasonably go for. He thought I was stupid. Now he has dropped his price by 20k.
