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.
