Mollers sometimes says exactly what he's thinking. But he quickly recovers and has a Tipex Moment. I think it's kinda sweet ;-)

Customers aren't happy unless they think they're screwed the dealer on a buy. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my customers, but I know they hate to think of me making a profit off them (as they see it)
Valid point, I wasnt forced to sell, I only sold as it wasnt big enough for me (and getting too much of an ear-full about the number of boats I own from 'her indoors! - still at 3 and counting LOL).

I am in business and have no problem in anyone making a profit (It is what i try to do every day!! LOL).

The Guy had a lot of up front expenses (470 mile return journey for start!, servicing, screen and seat bases) I could have spent the time and energy on it - both in short supply at the moment and possibly made more out of it - I made enough to cover the cost of my Osprey! to trade up (or according to the Searrider gang DOWN LOL)

As most know i was given it for free and donated a fair proportion of what I sold it for to the RNLI. I wish the seller all the best in making a profit - we all need to eat!!

Mike
