Re: The Search Widens Before it Narrows
Here's a strategy that could help widen the search, without undue traveling. If you can narrow your choice down to a brand, maybe a model or two or a range within that brand, then go see the closest dealer. They almost always have a used broker. Even if not for sale, they can often get you aboard customers boats, just so you can choose what you're looking for. They may have some inventory, but are often very schooled on all the inventory on the market. If they don't have what you want, they are pretty wired into the community to properly filter distant boats before you nail down what you may want to visit to confirm it is as advertised. Since you've already been aboard the model nearby, you're only traveling to assess quality when you've picked the one.
