Re: Selling my boat -am I crazy?

I think the only thing that matters right now is will the boat sell in this market? When the market is crowded with great used boats, it is really going to be tough to get your price. The bottom feeders come out too, and make ridiculous offers on the chance you are desperate enough to go for it. I'm related to one, he brags all the time about how he bought a boat or car way below asking price, by making an offer so low that his next take it or leave it offer almost sounds good. Usually the takers are people who really really need the money, have just gotten screwed yet again.
