I did have a boat- but it was paid for
Still, even if you take a little hit, you may save so much it will still be worth while! I bought the ZR for $60000 under the surveyed value- the well known surveyer even said i could try and flip it and make some $$- there are some amazing deals if you're openminded and look around- as I said, i ended up with so much more boat than i wanted

I would hold off. I did. Sold the Tiger 3 1/2 years ago and have been packing money away every since. Now I'm in a position to write a check and not have to fool with the bank. A great feeling and truthfully, looking back, I haven't missed chit the last three seasons. I would especially be comfortable holding off from this point forward because used boat prices aren't going up for a while, imo.
