Anyone actually buying a cat at Annapolis?

Just pondering if the big show will be worse than last year in sales. Most everyone got hit hard lately but let us know if your buying so we can cheer you.

if one was going to buy at a show is there a better time to get a better price will they lower one more than they are showing?

I had 2 of the vendors we are looking at say there are incentives for buying at the show..

If you buy a shown boat they are usually loaded so they can show them off.

Could you PM me on who your broker as in Florida? I am about ready to spring, perhaps you could help me with some pitfalls. Was it better in Newport or Florida?

I have been looking for a cat since the show. I have not pulled the trigger but some of the offers that I have received have been surprisingly low, especially fro the french manufacturers. Feel free to PM me and I will share them with you.

While I am not going to pull a trigger right now I am certainly watching prices here and there. I am not using a broker because I don't feel it is right to have one working for me when I am not "ready" to buy.

I would be interested in a PM with some "food for thought" though.
