Re: troubling news..
From what I've heard about the Philly/NJ area, 30+' boats are selling pretty well IF they are in good shape (increased sales are due to the NorEaster and Hurricane Sandy). I'm going to guess that his boat isn't in good condition.
I ran into Tony Tumas (Chesapeake Bay Broker) at the AC Boat show and he was busy as hell with used boat sales. He said he really hadn't seen much demand from Sandy yet. Evidently a lot of people are still wrangling with insurance companies. I don't know that new boat sales are seeing the same kind of activity.
