Mark, I know there are regional differences but the market must be much slower in Texas than here. Two local brokers I talk with occasionally tell me they've been very busy on used boats for a while now, while new boat sales are still sluggish.

The bump in interest rates may knock some people off the fence and into the brokers office as well. It's definitely had an effect on home prices and demand.
