Some of you will be glad to know I am leaving the forum...pointless exercise to educate in a professional/recognised method of buying and selling boat, from dinghy/tender to Superyacht.
The idea is to look after and protecting both buyer and seller who happen to BOTH be customers, given the price of some of the larger RIB's and the money involved I would have thought it of value.

Those who chose to slate me on thread are more than welcome...though you are likely to remember when you get your fingers burnt, selling or buying.

Dealers or brokers have a vested interest to sell product, so it creates a naturally cynical position for any customer wanting to buy something. He'll be asking himself, how much profit is this guy going to make from me, and am I putting my money in a good place? ... or is this purchase a sound one in all respects.

One of the only ways this situation can be avoided is where the dealer has gained a good reputation, so a potential customer can anticipate less profiteering by the dealer, safe in the knowledge he will be trying to protect his reputation, thats the kind of dealer or vendor I want to deal with, I'd be much happier handing over the cash in this regard. Part of that ethos becomes evident in the vendors ability at resolving a customers problems, but its hardly an alien concept that the customer starts from a point of suspicion therfor, and if the vendor does nothing to alleviate that, he can hardly expect a sale.

I've lost count of the number of times Ive been ready to buy a big ticket item, but walked away because of a dealers lack of willingness to sell, or general indifference. Maybe Paul if you had a suit or shirt and tie on .. you might have got better attention .... .... and thats the biggest mistake so many dealers make IMHO.

*edit* writing this before I saw he left .. ah well trying to be constructive

Not sure but it certainly has lots of cables connected to the nearest illegal power line hook up no doubt

I think that's the best flounce off I've seen for a while.

For what it's worth I don't think he was trying to sell anything, just trying to make a point.

It's a fine line between a point and an ass though...

The way I see it, H-P can be an irritating cnut, but he's OUR irritating cnut, so when some gadge rocks up calling him a "character" (in a bad way) and accusing him of Slander (which he didn't commit), I get grumpy...

...and we know what I'm like when I get grumpy
You trying to sell me redbay?!
