Default Boats.com vs. Boattrader.com

Been using Boatrader for years with good results. They bought Boats.com but they operate separately. Do I need to be on both sites? I always felt that anyone searching for a boat would always check Boattrader anyway,as they have always been the leader. Looks like lots of dealers run the same ads on both sites. Seems like unnecessary duplication but I could be wrong. Do a lot of you check Boats.com and not check Trader?

I'll visit both occasionally...I used to have a "re-fresh" issue with boattrader that was so annoying that I quit going there for awhile. When I complained to them...."I was the only one with that problem" For the last few months it has worked fine for me.

I think everyone had that "refresh" problem not just you, I agree, I just stopped going that often then.

right click the link & select "open in new window/tab" solves it. But a pain regardless. Has been working correctly lately.
