Default That sound Cheap

DJD,

That offer sounds on the low end. What was the performance you were getting with the 625's? Must have been mid-upper 70's?

i'v ebeen kickign myself for not taking the first ofer on my scarab last year. Now i've sunk a ****loa dof money into it. Granted its goign to be nice when its done but If i sodl it I coudl haev boughat newer bigge rboat that didn;t need to have ton of $$$ thrown at it.

That being said don't sell. I want it, I just need to amke some more money first

but seriously if the offer is legit sell it.

Dave, if I were in your shoes, I`d keep it and enjoy it.

50k doesn`t buy much as far as 38 Cigs go.or other quality performance boats.

although 50k willl buy a new 27' Rinker



KEEP IT KEEP IT KEEP IT

Also, is there any truth to the rumor of Cigarette going with huge price increases in the near future?

If so, it will make the used boats worth much more. Just like what has happened with Outer Limits.

It is listed at:
http://adcache.boattraderonline.com/6/9/9/1721599.htm
and
www.thunderboatalley.com/ddall_38.htm (thanks again Sean)

I already am insured in FL waters as I hve kept it down there for the past few yrs & used it 7 or 8 times over the winter with the FL powerboat club.

Crazyhoarse, You couldn't get my boat any farther away from CA without leaving the States. I'm in CT (but I can Fed Ex a video tape).

Dave...being associated with the real estate industry, we find that many times the first offer is the best. You've had it on the market for some time now. Sometimes if a house has been on the market for a long time, it gets shopworn and people start wondering whats wrong with it. I'm as puzzled as everybody else why that boat hasn't sold. You've had it in Powerboat, internet and Ocean Performance. It seems you done all the right things. Although real estate is a different product, I think some of the concepts are similar here. Do you know a broker in FL that will give you honest input into whether or not there would be interest down there for this boat during the winter months? This economy blows and it seems that the buyers have the upper hand this time. I'd see if you can get him up a couple of grand and sell it. Steve

Let's see, is Connecticut over where the sun comes up? How the heck did I get that side of the world confused with the sunset side? What a roundhead.

DJD,
$50,000.00 Cash. Ship It!!!
By the time you take it to FL. Pay a 10% Broker fee. Put "Sea Trial" hours on it. Deal with "potential Buyers" You will be right back at $50K or lower and have a bad taste in your mouth about the whole process (Not that you already dont) Take the money and spend it on something you want, as oppesed to holding onto something you dont.
