Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?

Actually PT Barnum wrote a good deal about how to get the most from the rubes. Some of it available in the free electronic libraries.

And he made a point to get their money up front, before they ever saw the show. If Barnum was a yacht broker, you might feel scr*wd but you would be smiling when you walked away. And ready to come back next year to the same guy, for another boat.

Oddly enough, good business advice.
