I want to know how your boat search is going. Are you headed to the Miami boat shows to see some boats?

Are you seeing what you’re after out there?

Are there a lot of boats in your price range?

Are there many choices in the kinds of boats you’re looking for?

What about new boats? Did you consider a new boat?

Are brokers and salesmen making you more comfortable with the process?

Are brokers and surveyors and finance people and insurance people doing a good job of answering your questions?

What is your number-one concern that’s slowing your boat search from becoming a boat purchase?

Or are you a broker? If you are, what’s your take on the show this year?
