[QUOTE=TimGoz;742874]When I was looking for a boat for missionary work in the far North I was not pleased with the couple of brokers I used. Worse than a used car salesman. Prefer straight through the owner. Thanks. Btw, what do you think of 30 foot Willards?[/QUOT
Believe me I have run into a few exactly as you describe. However, I must give credit to the one who helped me. I wanted a 40 Eagle and I have been led to believe there are less than 40 in the USA. There were 2 for sale but after 2 offers each we couldn't get either to our price point. This guy tracks down several owners on the East Coast, cold calls them to ask if they still had their Eagle and if they wanted to sell it. Found an owner in CT that was willing to sell, rode to with me to see it, and negotiated the purchase. Just saying I will use him again.
