Curious Customs: Setting Price Before Setting Sail?

Yup David, It is just you! The broker is exactly right that you don''t get a sail trial until a price has been agreed to and a deposit made. To me it makes no sense to be taking people out for a sail that have not committed to a purchase and agreed to a price. It would be one thing if the boat is question was a rare or exotic design but with a production cruiser there is no logic to not coming to terms first.
