Now that the The Big Purchase!!!! thread is nearing 500 posts and Eric seems have decided on buying that boat regardless of our input and suggestions.

Should we ask TTAdmin to delete the The Big Purchase!!!! thread?

There is a lot of good info on this thread if a new buyer were to read through it all.

I listened to the advice, but am still going to buy the boat. Not at 18K though.

Amazing...... all this advice to the contrary. Numerous examples of less expensive & better condition boats. And your still going to drive 2000 miles round trip to get this lemon? Doesn't it make you wonder why the dealer would drop so much? From $21k to $18k to $13.5?! The dealer himself knows this boat isn't what it looks like at first & he wants it off his lot!!
I have to wonder if your not crazier than 1500 empty posts could even begin to indicate. :toast:
Remember to get a jack & lug wrench. Your gonna need it!!

This is the last I have to say.
Don't buy that boat for one dollar over $10,000
You will need the other $8,000 to make it worth $14,000
Do the math you lose $4,000
Good Luck with your decision.
DON"T BUY THE FUC%ING THING!!!!!! :rant:

I voted NO.. Only because if he is over on the big perch thread it allows others to have conversations on other threads with less of the turrets like interruptions ;)

Dudes,

Erk needs to make his own "mistakes", I know I've made plenty :( . I know everyone is trying "help". I am just a 40 something grey-haired guy (since 28) who is not rich and not poor, but personal experience has been my best teacher. And my 90 Maristar was bought from a "pup" who got in over his head. Doesn't matter the age, everyone learns better from their own mistakes and their own accomplishments!

Erk, do what you think is best... it usally works out.

Unless you live in Vegas and put the house on Philly in the SuperBowl!!!

:banana: :mad:

erk, that boat is a huge tird. don't buy it dude. How many people have to tell you that? I know you want to make your own decisions, I'm only a little older than you and I did a similar thing, I just didn't get in debt that much. I payed too much for my boat, but it was still low enough that I'm not over my head.

If he's going to sell it to you for less than the price had gone on ebay, you HAVE to question that. It's a POS dude. Don't buy it. I don't care if he decides to give it to you, well, that would be a different story. don't pay more than 10K for it, it's a piece of schit.
