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.

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
