There is one rule of negotiation:

He who opens his mouth first - loses.

Man walks into a bar and sees the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen.
Says to her: I'm a very rich man and you are simply beautiful. Let me ask you...would you go to bed with me for a million dollars?

She thinks a minute and says: Well for a million dollars I would do it.

He says: How about for $25 dollars?

She says: $25 bucks...what kind of girl do you think I am?

He says: We've already established that...now we're just negotiating!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Boat buying negotiations

I guess I am too emotional or don't trust my knowledge of boats, but I approach boat buying like house buying. If the boat is of significant value (requires a survey) I use a broker. Therefore, there is only one type of offer - a sales contract with a deposit which can be accepted or declined.
