I got An RV over 30 ft. Oh wait that already sold. Sorry. :D:D:D

Just kidding. Good luck on your search Dave.

Why not just sell the bike and use the cash to buy the boat???

ckgreenman 01-21-2009 10:27 PM

I second that. That's pretty much what I did. I sold my RV and will be using the proceeds to buy my boat. It might take a while to find the right buyer but you will and you might even get more than you expect.

Put it on eBay or something.

It also gives you a lot more choices of boats to get...and probably more bargaining leverage on the boats you do look at.

Why not sell the bike and the boat you already have, then take the money and buy the boat you want. As SD stated, it would give you much more leverage and buying power.
Good Luck

Seriously... think about it... What is the number of people owning a boat that is reasonably fast over 30' LOA... then think, what percentage of those want a 1973 Ducati 750 GT motorcycle, and are willing to trade their boat for it. That number is a lot smaller than the first one. IMHO, anyone looking to do a trade is basically being foolish about it...because you drastically limit your choices and destroy any bargaining power you would have otherwise.
