Honey, I talked to the broker…
Well, it’s been sometime since our initial 2 boat offers. I think after that experience, we decided that perhaps fate was telling us we should slow down a little bit and not get too far ahead of ourselves. So, over the summer of 2011 we enjoyed our current boat – Hunter 260 that we have had on Lake Minnetonka for the last 11 seasons.
We keep talking about boats and we keep looking at yachtworld everyday, still focused on Island Packet 380’s.
We have been looking at one particular Island Packet 380 that has been on the market for about 2 years now. We have gradually watched as the list price has dropped to something close to the price we are willing to pay. We have casually discussed this boat and reviewed the photos and information multiple times.
Mark, came home from work today and said “ummm, honey, I talked to the broker…” Remember that Island Packet 380 we have been looking at? Well, I called him up to see what the deal was with this boat since the list price had just dropped again.
Well, as you can imagine, the rest of the evening was spent in discussion about this boat, what did we think, did we want to make an offer, is it the right time to make an offer. Wait, didn’t we just send in money for our boat slip for the 2012 summer season? Can we ask for our money back? (Remember that part about getting ahead of ourselves)
Well, we spent the better part of the next 2 – 3 days talking more about this boat and the what ifs. Placed a few more calls to the broker to ask some questions and ultimately decided…..
(more to come, you didn’t think I was going to give it all away in one blog post, did you?)
