My wife and I were very happy with the results of our negotiations. Sure, I could have taken it and did the service myself... but the broker hired a desiel company to do the service (the owner is paying for it). It's all relative, but I might take over a boat with no time on the service, one less thing to worry about for the rest of this season.

The owners increase over my offer was a no brained for us. We went in at 80%, he went up another 5.

GOD, Family, career
