Default What's with the boating market

I've had my boat listed for about 1.5 months. Not much action out there, whats the deal?

A few months ago, OSO memebers were buying boats left and right I was really getting jealous! Is the market really that saturated.

I hope not my boat will be for sale in a couple of weeks
It will be hard to upgrade if I can't sell my boat.

Unless you're giving something away, selling right now is really tough.

JIMB, I'm in the same boat. I need to sell before I buy.

I've spoken to a few dealerships about a trade but you never get what you want.

It's kind of a bummer, I want to purchase something before the intrest rates go thru the roof!!!

Panther: start crunching numbers to see how much money you will be losing as interest rates climb...then work on your price accordingly. You might be suprised to find how much the amortization changes your best options.

Now? Hell, it took me close to year to sell my boat, and that was almost 3 years ago. Seems like the market for mid-priced ($70-125K) performance boats sucks! And if you're higher than that, it better have a big red #1 on the side...
