Re: Upgrade after 1/2 season?

Classic problem.

You know you came to the bar, with a question best for an alcoholics anonymous meeting. Here youíll be told to buy three boats. 🙂

Really though, there is no good reason to own two boats at the same time. If you can afford it and the new boat is the right boat for you, itís certainly been done by many of us before. If you press ahead, Imwoild want to be comfortable that I could deeply discount the old boat to move it, then hope for upside. As opposed to be grossly disappointed with how long it takes to sell.

As a parallel, I made an offer to buy another boat last Fall. I called my friend, who had expressed interest in my current boat, and offered it to him at least 25% below market value. He accepted and it was better to get it done, IMO. Unfortunately for everyone, my purchase fell through.
