Warmer weather is coming and I'm sure the Motion will move once the weather breaks.

Or grow a set like they do in Tenn ...

The difference is down in TN they still have water in their river, you need an ice breaker ship to go down the CT River right now!

We can sea trial it up here in RI where there's no ice on the bay somewhat TN style! The river is a little tough with the icebergs!!

Most folks love the 500's and it's obviously a really sharp 35, so I'm suprised it hasn't sold!

Wasn't I the one that suggested that you buy yours blind??? I never said I was right in the head!
LMAO !!!! Yes , you were. You saved me a grand in flights and hotels, ect... I guess I owe you a beer....or 5 ! Better yet, Ill have Nellie make you on of her "special drinks!"

If her special drinks are anything like the last drink you served me on your Bullet, I'm sure I'll only need one!

I guess you guys are a little more serious about selling your cat than some others are then... I tried to go look at a 36 today. Reading the listing on the boat the seller sounded like he wanted it sold pretty bad. I contacted him earlier and told him I was a serious buyer and that I'd like to see the boat as I am driving south and will be in his area (today actually).

He responds back "put the cover on for the winter and has snow on it" Ooooookay. WTF????????

I ask him if we can brush the snow off it so I can take a peek at it, and that I understand it's probably winterized and wouldn't ask him to start it at this point. If I were to buy it I'd have a full survey done... NO RESPONSE!

A couple other guys haven't responded after I inquired weeks ago about cats they are interested in selling. WTF?


I'm not sure what's more frustrating at this point, buying or selling a boat! One would think in this market "selling", but after being serious about buying a couple of boats now, I'm starting to think it's the other way around!

Jeezus Keerist I mean how many cat buyers are out there, especially with insurance rates being what they are??? Those guys are stupid to let you get away.
