So it's this tough situation where you can get lulled into slow action because you think nothing sells quickly, but if you find "the boat" you'd better act quickly because everyone else is looking for the same high level of maintenance that you are.
I agree with this. Although we were looking at a very different price range than the O/P, the junkers that we saw are still on the market. The boat we bought was on the market for only a few weeks before we saw it, and we didn't hesitate. Every week we're thankful we were lucky enough to find our boat.
