Re: Pitfalls of trading up?

Let's see...

Catalina 250, then traded up to 320, then traded up to 380, then traded up to 400.... now looking for my next baby, but gave up because Nordhavn won't take my C400 on trade!!! What't the matter with them!? HEHE!

Hey, listen, trading up is great. I always bought new too. My salesman loves me. He told me so. Many times. I even get Christmas cards (new Catalina 445 flyer attached inside).

My suggestion, don't ever get the right boat the first time. You will lose a good friend. You must keep trading up.
