ok folks, this ain't wal-mart. The price tags on the item have been removed.
everything is negotiable.
The "value" of a particular hole in the water is what someone is willing to pay for it, and someone else is willing to sell it for.
Throw out the calculator, forget the speadsheet, make the offer dependant on what its worth to YOU.
The guidelines available are almost worthless due to the varience of equipment installed, the condition of the boat and its rigging/sails and other systems, and what the market will bare. (bear). Every boat is different. Models of the same boat are equipped differently. Hence, the ability to slap a consistant percentage of sales price vs. offer goes out the window.
Cash does work, as well as the ability to walk. Make sure the broker involved knows both will be forthcoming. The "busy" season is just warming up, people are looking to trade, upgrade, get out, get in, you name it. SO, put on your sneakers and do some walkabouts.
We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through
Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs
