Be fast in buying your dream boat.

What you see is a grown man crying. The reason?? Because I took to long in offering for a boat that I wanted. And it was sold this pass weekend. I'd called on Monday.... But you know how that went... The new owner is happy and I'm miserable.
Back to the search again.
Have fun folks.

Boasun,

THere will be others!! Hang in there!!! However, I think the market is swinging and used boats are coming in demand. So, if you find one you like, GET IT!

Take care.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

It just means there will be a better one along soon. Hang in there. The thing about your "dream boat", and we all have one or two, is that even if you buy it, you will start dreaming about another one eventually.

I gotta agree, there's another dream boat out there with your name on it, hell, it may not even be on the market yet, but it's still has your name on it and it will be yours when the timing is right.

My brother (elder brother, obviously) always tells me, "it is better to walk away from three great deals than to walk into one hidden disaster."

Sorry, and best of luck!

Your better off

Your probably better off without this "dream boat" you say you missed out on.

Soon you'll find abother one you love and all will be better. You'll take your "new" boat out, look at the sunset with a coldie in hand, and say, "Man, am I glad I missed making that offer on that other boat I saw".

A couple months ago I made an offer (and I made a VERY reasonable offer)and the guy wanted to hold out for more. I found another that was waaay better for me and less. That other boat is still sitting there.

What kind of "dream boat" was it?

Boats are like women, when you loose one you love you think you'll never get over it until you find onw you love more, then you're glad you made all the mistakes with the first one.......or so I'm told
