The dock’s are in at most marinas, and if yours isn’t , you’d better start making some calls!Summer is coming whether you are ready or not! So DO NOT miss any of it……….. It’s precious time.
We will have a quick blast of summer Friday 5/25, and Saturday where temps will hit 85 degrees! That, in all likelihood, will motivate many boaters to get their act together and get those final preparations done for the season.
Then there are those that are caught in the middle…..Boating purgatory.
Those poor souls that are either waiting for a boat to be delivered, or for a boat to finally be repaired. Patience is tested annually around this time of year, and the stress levels are high at the repair facilities.
Buying or selling a boat can be synonymous with stress. If you are buying, the time of year can be a factor, as most people claim the deals are more plentiful in the fall when the season is over.
Selling a boat is always difficult.There are usually many other boats already listed for sale. You need to discount the asking price significantly, or the boat needs to really stand out, and look almost new.
Keeping your boat clean can give it the edge over another boat a prospective buyer may be comparing it to. So keep it clean!
