Just to clarify, did they simply fail to volunteer the information you wanted, or did they actively avoid answering your direct questions?
Sales people tend to talk about what they think the customers are interested in and what differentiates their product from the competition. If the competition also has a well-built boat, and most customers ask about amenities first, then I don't find their behaviour surprising.
It may be that other people evaluate the boats differently than you do. When I look at a boat, the first thing I do is walk around the boat. If I hit my head
too many times, I don't care how well built it is. Similarly, if my wife says "this is an ugly boat" (she never hits her head), I also don't care. This might lead a salesman to think I am more interested in amenities, up to the point where I ask how you gain access to the oil filter
I hope you weren't offended by my comments. I wasn't talking about the cats. I was talking about how they were marketing them.
In my experience, the term "floating condo" is usually intended to give offense. If you were not aware of that particular usage, then we now have a clue to where some misunderstanding might come from.
