Re: "Buyer's Market" - any data to back it up?

After reading my posts, I have to confront the fact that I am working from a bottom feeder's point of view. The prices of new, or even newish boats are SO far over my price target, that my perspective has been skewed. I would like to frame my posts as pricing on boats over 10 years old and 38 to 43 feet long. There are lots of folks who are in a far different market position than myself and for them, my posts are not very germane to the discussion. Also I am in New England, and what I say is more relevant to the North East market. There are different market drivers in the North West, Canada, and other locations.
That said, the tide lifts and drops all the boats, so with a grain of salt, my comments might still be useful.
