All true haha

figure out what you need (or can afford) your payment to be over the amount of years you want to finance (I would start a little lower than your maximum) and let them know that is your amount and let them see if they can work their magic.

Perhaps people didn't understand that I was stating that a car dealer sells many times the inventory that a boat dealer does. Margins must be different for cars vs. boats.

I don't believe that any one boat dealer is selling 2-3 MCs per day, everyday. There are some dealers in large towns that will sell more than 10 per year. However, if you are in Dallas, Orlando, etc, then 10 boats a year is a fairly "normal" number.

Kal, have you thought about buying in Alberta?
Martin is also the largest Moomba and Supra dealer in the world too. Just sayin.

I'll refrain from commenting.

10 boats a year is a joke! My salesmen alone sold 20 mixed new and used boats last month.

Anyone have any bad experiences with your local dealer refusing to do warranty work if you bought your boat from a Non local dealer?

With my previous boat brand, (Malibu) it seemed to happen a lot.

When I was a mechanic, we would do it, but the boss would hold it as long as possible to inconvenience the customer.
