I keep leaving messages and emails over the last 3 weeks at Lake Wide in the Ozarks but nothing! I don’t know are the still open. The 32 Black Thunder Im interested in has been listed for a long time. If it wasn’t such an oddball boat I wouldn’t keep trying.

Are these guys still open or just not give a crud?

Not to make excuses for them, but I suspect that may be some of the reason for the lack of responses. I cannot imagine how many people they must talk to everyday that just want to talk boats, not buy boats. They make a living by selling, not just talking. I typically do as much research on forums like this, and don't even talk to a dealer or even a private owner until I am "ready to pull the trigger", and at that point, I let them know exactly that.

I know this may not be a popular opinion, but I suspect that it is pretty close to being accurate.

It's not just the boat industry. I went through a similar situation trying to buy a car recently. After having 5 or 6 dealers either outright lie to me or never return calls I got with the manufacturer and they located the exact car and model we wanted at a dealer in Chicago that then sold me the car.

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.
So what normally happens when the owner has the boat on consignment with a dealer but sells the boat himself? Does the dealer get paid expenses?

My buddy is a boat broker. It all depends on what's in the contract. I've listed houses before and if I found the buyer the contract with realtor was void.
