    I thought that might have been you leaving the marina early this morning. Have a great trip, Mike!
  3. White Marlin open

    What boat were you on, Mike? Bruce is out on the CGI boat today... haven't heard from him. I am watching the live stream now but haven't seen any boats come in yet (stream started at 4pm eastern)
  4. Boat Dealers

    I agree that brokers should be thrilled to get offers to present to the seller, I know I am. The problem is that some sellers have unrealistic expectations or refuse to except that todays market is what it is. My job as a broker is to be brutely honest upfront... this often means I don't get the listing because they think their boat is the best in the world and I want them to give it away. It's a tricky business. No one has ever come back to say "Boy, I sure am glad I didn't take that offer".

    This guy sounds burnt out to me and/or does not have a minimum commission. My tip would be to either find a new career, take some time off and mentally regroup and learn how to make this market work for him not against him. There is no doubt that times are tough but I am using this time to hone my skills and prepare for the upswing, not complain.

    I'm not having a problem selling boats and making money.

    Ditto on all of the above. We bought a couple of large arm chairs from e-searider. They are very well built and comfy! Let me know if you want to check them out Mike.
  12. Need a new GPS

    Garmin would be my choice... love their stuff.
  13. Show your boats and your fish

    Here is my home... I left the fenders out??? Photoshop to the rescue!
  14. Generally speaking, in my experience, those that claim to have a better resale value usually have a higher price tag up front. The depreciation rate is usually the same... in most cases. If you pay 3-4 times the cost of a Yugo on your Honda it will likely be worth 3-4 times the Yugo in 5 years. There are exceptions, and some don't agree, but I think thats the case in most instances.

We will arrive early in the morning with a new Pursuit, all you have to do is look for the Pursuit flag and tie up. Enjoy the race and get to know other Pursuit owners. Hope to see you there!
