YD, Second quarter of 10 isn't that far away. I don't know your price range but new boats would require pulling the trigger now and used is about 4 months from offer to close. My situation is that I need a boat right now like I need VD but sometimes the opportunity is too good to pass up. (analogy, you get screwed with both)
One example of taking advantage of a market is Henry Ford. People think he became rich from selling cars, which he did. But his real wealth came during the depression when he bought the complete pipeline of assets needed to make a car for pennys on the dollar. This hopefully will be as close as we come to a depression in my lifetime and when opertunity knocks, I'm answering.
