Most sellers are between those two extremes -- the boat is on the market, but the seller is willing to wait several months to get a decent price. Likewise, the "worth" of such a sellers boat is somewhere between the "fire sale" price and the "how much will it take to get you to sell?" price.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
