My Boats: Sold the Cafe' and boatless for now.....

When I sold my Cafe' last month, I used OSO and boat trader. I got a ton of calls from OSO but they were all from out of state and trying to coordinate travel etc turned out to be too much for most buyers in this price range.

the guy who bought my boat was local and saw the ad on boat trader.

i found a pile of people looking to trade my boat plus cash for 33 formula ss. im looking to get into. however most of the people i talk to owe more then they are worth so they cant do it.
its unreal how people can buy a boat keep it for 5 or 6 years and still owe more then its worth. 20 year notes on a boat is crazy imo.
ive only put my boat in a few places with the same thing. tire kickers or people offering 10-15k less then what the boat is worth.
good thing for me, i own it, and i love it so i will not give it away. there is an a$$ for every seat. it will sell at some point without fire sale

I sold my last boat here on OSO last Aug. It sold in a few weeks. Maybe I just got lucky.
