Sorry for the delayed response.

Dealers DEFINITELY hold inventory. Most manufacturers require the dealers to hold a certain number of boats in various models in inventory. Believe me, go to a new boat dealer of any production line, and they have new boats in inventory. Note that I'm speaking of monohulls; I'm not sure if the multihull dealers work the same way.

And CD, Cowboys??!!! Aren't you in Texan country down there?
