Help -- good deal??? no names just thoughts

6 posts in this topic

I am kind of upset. I was looking at a 2005 sportfish with a 06 150 optimax.

The dealer I was talking to told me this hold over would save me $7,500 over the name 2007 model -- I called another dealer and I can get a 2007 for $4,500 more.

Is this a good deal?

How much should I expect on a good deal on a hold over?

Should I be upset that a guy "lied" or should I have expected that he was just trying to make the sale?

What should I expect to save on a carry-over? maybe I am wrong. crazy.gif

Hitman,

My boss is looking at buying a new ski boat. He has been talking to several marine dealers for a couple of months now trying ot make the right decision. He has noticed the longer he works with the guy the more the truth comes out. RIght now the Boat Market is Stagnate. I would guess you could probably weel and deal in the hold over, there can't be that much difference on them. that beeing said there is realistically no mark up on a boat cet for a slim profit margin. That is one reason why the new owner of University Motors quite selling boats. I doubt you will find much room to wiggle but maybe you can get them to hook you up with free tarp, fish finder etc.

hitman, are you trading in your old boat, keeping, or selling? I know someone who is looking for newer boat.

Thanks

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
