No, it didn''t irritate me. :-). I understood exactly what you meant. And I don''t disagree. Like I said, unless you had the extra money to spend, a used boat is a much value than a brand new boat. But the issue with a used boat is that sometimes there might be a feature that you would like that is only available on a newer boat. For instance I *really* wanted a walk through transom (I cruise and love to anchor in nice peaceful harbors with kids and dogs, so its almost a requirement) and the reality is a lot of great boats that are over 5-7 years old don''t have that feature. I was just wondering if you had that particular boat. I was going to ask what you really liked about it, was is just the higher quality or was there some features you really liked, etc, etc. Don''t have to take things so seriously.
