No complaints here.
Since the Ft. Lauderdale show sales have gone through the roof on new boats.

PRE_OWNED PRICING.

I have noticed a big drop in late model used boat pricing.
I think the new boat builders are mostly building boats to order now, so you won't see too many great deals on new boats. If you can find any left-over 2003 models in stock, you should be able to make a great deal. And don't forget, with low interest rates now you will save a lot on interest.

We frequently dine out, tell me which ones they own and we will spend our money with you.

I'll second that our orders have been picking up quite a bit in the last few months hopefully it continues. I would guess that if your going to get a good deal on anything now is probably the best time. The more the econemy improves the fewer good deals your going to find.
