I know we always focus on how large the passion of classic boats is as a lip-miss test. But what about brokers and restorers? What about sales? Increased prices?
We reached out to a couple sponsors and business is strong. Some slammed busy and booked up, others have seen a very stable increase. And sales have been good. Our readership is about the same, and is more responsive to the quality of the story of the day. YA.. Sorry. HEY at least you brat kids are fed. Yes it may be mac and cheese every day and Roman noodle stories. But at least your fed. WOW, that hit a nerve. I need to be more careful about what I write to myself. Oh no.. Copy loop again.. Where was I? Oh, ya..
Many in the passion have sold boats that had been for sale for years. And yes the strong spot in the market is still in the mid 20’s and 30’s. $100K boats take longer to sell. But as restorers get booked up. Buying a done boat is a good option if priced right.
If you are in the market for a classic boat, this is a great time to buy one. Shop around, but make sure you have the boat checked out by an expert in classic boats. This is important. Know what you are getting, or getting into. Its an amazing passion, when you can enjoy it. Our sponsors here on Woody Boater are among the best in the passion. And can save you thousands, and heartache.
By the way, Happy Header Day. You know what to do.
