I suppose I can understand that. But then, it seems to me like it doesn't take too many like the above, where the seller ends up bad-mouthing the broker all over town, to make it not worth the occasional, eventual sale.

I guess what I'm thinking of is the real estate brokers office that I worked in a couple of summers, back when I was a kid. I know that he would refuse to list houses if the owner was not realistic about a price. Said it wasn't worth his time, and that it made him look bad if he carried a bunch of houses that never sold. I would think the same would apply to boat brokers, but maybe they don't think of it the same.
