We'll know in a couple of days.
Your deposit check shouldn't be cashed until when/if the offer is accepted.

If your offer iswrejected, let us know...realize buying a boat is just like buying a used car...many participants expect to haggle, some price accordingly. You really don't know whether you have made a smart offer unless it is turned down..the market is slow, have another boat in mind you will want the broker to show you, be ready to say you are moving on. After a week or two you can go back...just be willing to pay up to what you have figured the boat is actually worth...don't ask the broker what that is.
