Must admit it isn't the pictures that really really get me (they only really get me).
I just don't understand why so many American boat ads I have been looking at, make so much more of the sound system, and what speakers it has got, and that it might also include cockpit
speakers, as well as a 'docking station', than the actual important stuff like Nav gear
, deck gear
and condition, the frequently absent propulsion
system info, and what has been done or not done to the hull
. Heck you can put a seriously good enough sound system in for next to nothing, yet top priority in the listing, goes to the audio.
Frankly, I don't give a damn (even if they are Bose 901's - but they are never that good anyway).
There's a boat over here that is actually a type I want to get, and it's in the right size range (for me), but the photo's are of two different boats (one dark blue hull
, the other white), and the rest are out of focus.
'Everything' [tm] is supposedly well maintained and in good condition, due to long term caring owners, but the boat has had hardly any use the 'last few years', and they don't even list 'any' of what 'Everything'[tm] is.
Already it has been dropped in price
substantially, and I guess a few people have had a look at it (and likely have had sensible offers rejected). As it is the other end of the Country, I 'might' go and have a look at it as a diversion on the way to the airport
to fly to America to look at some boats.
But then again, I'm not even interested in picking up the phone
and making a stupidly low offer to the broker, prior to inspection
If they are that disinterested, why should I be, even if it is a boat I have hankered after for years. Dreams all too often turn out to be very real nightmares.
