FWIW. I've had VERY good quick responses with Pier 57 and Shogren anytime I was looking at boat of theirs. The rest of them blow IMO.

I know the feeling... paid 2/3rds of the price of a new Sonic in October, told I would have an April deliver date... in April thought about calling it a day but later agreed to continue with the build.. paid the balance in May as I expected a May delivery.. it is August still not boat... times are better than we all thought...

I contacted a dealer that had a used boat on OSO. Got no responce. About a year earlier I had contaced the owner that had the boat. I dug up his email address and emailed him if boat was still for sale & told him I had not heard from dealer in over a week. Guy told me yes and said he would deal with me on the sale. Over next 2 weeks looked at and bought boat. Two weeks lafter that I get email from dealer saying the yes boat was still for sale and wanted to know if I wanted to see it. I forwared the email on to the person I had bought the boat from.

On a POSTIVE note, I called Performance boat brokerage this week to inquiry about a boat that I was interested in. I talked to Brett, asked him to tell me about the boat. He was what I felt extremely honest in describing all the boats imprefections, without me asking or prying for them. I felt he honestly represented the boat's true condition and did not try to hide stuff other dealers would! Brett knew quite a bit of history aobut the boat and was happy to share it. When I get closer to pulling the trigger I plan on giving them a call again!

We appreciate the call and the post. The boat you called on has spent a couple of months of my lift at the house, I know it well and its one that I almost want to keep! Almost!!!

That's great. I normally don't advocate under-cutting a broker but in this case, that's awesome. Fvck 'em if it takes 2 weeks to a month to return calls. They deserve to fail if it takes them that long. I don't care what the excuse is, I don't want to hear it. 1 to 2 business days and I walk away.
