I am so frustrated. I am trying to buy a boat from a local dealer here and he won't order a boat until fall. He says he only orders once a year and lets his inventory run down. I was quoted a price of $1450 for the hull but then he says "but that will be higher because I'm not going to order it until the fall". He then directed me to another dealer who quoted me a price $400 higher for the same hull. I don't undserstand his business sense. This guy is 20 minutes away. The other dealer is over an hour away. After all this, as bad as I want an Alumacraft boat, I'll change course and go with a Lowe. I think I'll drop Alumacraft a line and tell them why after years of owning an Alumacraft, I'm switching back to Lowe.
