Looking to buy a boat. However, I'm in a pickle. There is one boat which is THE boat that I want that isn't available until September. It's a great deal too. Someone else is interested in buying the same boat as well.

There is a second boat that I would also enjoy having but it doesn't have all of the bells and whistles that the other boat has but I would be happy to have it.

There is no guarantee that I will get boat #1. Good chance but no guarantee. People are people and sometimes they don't always follow through on what they say.

I REALLY want a boat NOW.

So the question is, do I buy boat #2 now and sell in September if boat if and when boat #1 becomes available to ME? Do I take a chance, not have a boat for another 3 months and wait for boat #1? HEEEEELP!


If you can't find em wind em.

not sure how much experience you have in buying and selling boats, but i personally would not buy a boat i plan on selling in less than a couple years...way too much head ache, i am impatient and know the feeling of wanting it now, i have always been happier when i waited, good luck!

Patience....what a silly concept. I guess I'll wait! I hope to get that boat! Thanks for the wisdom. I just need to calm down....and probably stop looking at boats grin

Wait for "THE Boat". You will be happier in the long run. Get what you really want; don't settle.

Buy a $300 kayak to fish out of until the boat you want is available. You will get it cheaper when hunting season starts


See you on the lake and have a great day!

don't buy either until ur 100 percent sure
i know it is tuff being without a boat makes us do crazy thing to get on the water but be patient there is a lot of fish in that sea
something else will pop up might blow them both out of the water

Don't let 3 months disappoint years of boat ownership.. offer to put a deposit on boat #1 and wait.
