Default anybody checked the classifieds lately?

Holy Cow! someone sign a blank check for me and let me do some shopping!

You can get two or three TIMES the boat for the price than you could have this time last year or the year before..

In the last few days Ive found triple engine skaters going for under $40,000.. Plenty of cats under $150k that are in awesome shape and even MORE V-hulls with big power beggin for new homes at great prices..

If anyones been on the fence about upgrading, Id do it now..

Theres some REALLY awesome big deal toys out there right now.. I cant believe the prices have dropped the way they have.

ANd theres even quite a few boats that are almost BRAND new with just a handful of hours that are tens of thousands of dollars less than buying a new one..

Anyone plannin on pullin the trigger on something new
this fall?

Heres an example.. Look at all the cool stuff available between $40,000 and $85,000 right now:

I think that the market is getting to where it should be....new boats are way overpriced....I do like that 38 scarab for 45k though...

I'm more interested in how many of these "buyers" are actually going to buy when "the market gets right".

No problem but if ya have a few extra hundred do air bags or load boosters. Load boosters are new to me i just installed some on my 3/4 ton they eliminate any ass end side movement and they are about half the price as bags but bags are super nice.
