I don't know the boat, so this is just a general comment. But just as a general sanity check, how many 37' boats out there were selling for $275k, even at the peak of the bubble?
In pure numbers, not many but most of the quality, low volume or semi-custom ones seemed to cost those sort of $.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
