Default Boat & watercraft market????? Down??

I own a Personal watercraft Business in Delaware, sales, have been down, we also sell some high performance boats for select customers, anybody else notice the same problem? I have had my own personal Donzi 26Zx for sale all summer with maybe 2 phone calls, and in the last 2 months I sold just 4 new Sea Doo watercraft with great rebates. Not trying to be a downer just asking everyone else in the industry if they have noticed a slowdown?

Yes I agree with that its a buyer market, not a sellers market

I sell Liberator tunnels and Checkmates in Florida. I'm just a one man shop and do it all myself. Most of my stuff is more custom than normal. I was selling 4 or 5 boats a year. So far this year I sold 19. Three just two weeks ago. I don't know what's going on, but I hope it does'nt stop! http://liberatorfl.tripod.com

Great to hear, I am also a small shop owner, with just 4 employees, but I do most things myself, I just wanted to hear some good news I am tired of listing to bad news and economy problems. Thanks

Unfortunately it is bad news for boating businesses.

Cool

The PWC business is down because all those punkass kids can't get 110% financing anymore! High end stuff is selling because those type people don't count on creative financing.
