I think this is the key. There will be plenty of money floating around. But production has been down -- not just boats, but a lot of things. Think about it. With the lockdowns, just more people...

FWIW, I bought a leftover 2011 Optimax new out of the box in 2014. I bought the extended warranty so it is warranted through August 2021. I love everything about them - sound (some people think...

I buy a boat for me, not for anyone else. I buy what I want, not what someone else wants. I buy a boat to have fun, relax and enjoy time with friends and family. I don't care about resale. ...

Like others have said, you will be fine. My family had small boats when I was a kid, so I was around boats quite a bit at a young age. But we left that all behind before I turned 10. Thirty-five...

I agree with you. I never looked at a boat as an investment, and I never paid any attention to resale. And that works out for me because I, like you, buy a boat to use it with friends and family. ...

If you flush in the down position, salt water will come into the parts of the motor that are in the water. But that is the lower unit where you don't get such high temperatures at the head and where...

You might try Vanquish boats, not to be confused with Vanquish Yachts. They are a small volume manufacturer out of New England that make a classic looking boat like that.

FWIW, my choice in 2015 came down to Ford F-150 or Chevy Silverado. I liked the Ford, but I liked the features of the Chevy better, and that is what I chose. It's given me 5 years of solid service,...

I have a 21 foot boat and I go in and out of that inlet on an occasional basis. My boat is not really an ocean worthy boat, so I pick my days very carefully (and I don't wander far from inlet). ...

Love my 2011 Optimax. Would buy another without hesitation. Some don't like the sound, but in my opinion, there is nothing like the roar of an Optimax when you put the hammer down.

I keep my boat in Bayshore Marina on White's Creek, so I am very familiar with that area. I am not sure why they took out those green cans and the red nun. The water is consistently 4+ feet in...

You got a lot of hours out of it. Count it as a win and move on. Mine blew up at 187 hours.

FWIW, I am in the mid-Atlantic. Thorough wash, compound and polish twice per year: once in the spring when I take it of storage, and once at the end of the season when it goes back to storage. ...

I had 13 years of hard bottom paint on mine. I am sure they did not sand it down each year, so it had a couple barrier coats, then 13 more coats on top of that. Finally had it sand blasted last...

I have a similar story. 14 year old galvanized Load Rite. Dunked in salt water at least twice a year, sometimes more. Mine is a roller with dual axles. I had new brakes put on when the master...
