CD,
Stan has already offered a straight trade -- his Nauticat for my C30. He must think I'm a fool...

Sailhog,

Don't do it. They always try to trick you that way. Giu has been trying to get my 400 for his customized Dufour (that he calls Giulietta). I said no way. He even tried throwing in a few hundred grand... no way. Just my seasoned grills are worth that. He did not understand.

Keep on sailing SH, and don't look back. Don't let them take it from you, man. They will try - especailly Cam.

Now, if anyone has a Nordhavn 47, I am listening...

CD,
What is it with Portugese people? I don't mean to sound racist, but they've all got these beady little eyes and they're always trying to steal your boat. I can't tell you how many times it's happened to me. I know that Cam is full-blooded Portugese, and he tried to steal my C30 when he learned it had an A-4 powerplant. Again, I'm not being racist. Some of my best friends are Portugese. Thanks for the back-up.

I don't know about those rising prices. I have hard time selling a perfectly good Benny 285 for less than what I paid for her two years ago (and much less than what the book says she should be worth). May be prices of high end boats are up - but us reg'lar folks don't see much of that.

I recently bought a used boat ('93 PSC Crealock 37-yay!). Very recently-closed on it yesterday. I have a bit of a note on this boat and asked the lender if this was the busy time of year. Surprisingly I was told that sales trend down about right now- high time for sales tend to be in the Spring (which I expected) and the Fall (which I did not). I am in the Annapolis area- this could and probably does vary from place to place. I was focused on a Pacific Seacraft and looked at the depreciation numbers pretty hard. There isn't a huge difference between the price of sold 1986 boats and 1995 boats, but the price tends up sharply around 1997-2003. Very sharply! My broker gave me the sales vs. asking figures so I am pretty confident in my assertion for these boats. I didn't buy the boat as any sort of investment, but I know that if I had to sell her in the next few years I would probably recoup the purchase price.

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.

Thank you! I am... gobsmacked, as our British friends might say. She's sound per survey and I am pleased. The listing is still on Yachtworld as "sale pending" if you care to have a look.

I enjoy your posts here- thanks for the constructive contributions.

Does that mean I'm not really being being misleading when I tell my wife the money we put into the boat is an investment?
