This is certainly a good approach. But unfortunately, the seller always try to unload their boat based on the orignal price plus all the thing thay bought for the boat. It ends up more than a new boat.

A few years ago when the economy collapsed, there were plenty fire sales. There were plenty of good deal. No so much any more.
