A Buyer’s Guide for Buying a Used Boat

The process of buying a boat is similar to that of purchasing a car; it requires research and patience. The biggest difference is it’s difficult to verify the quality of the exterior and motor on a boat during a private sale. It’s important to exercise caution with used boats for sale in Wisconsin, to ensure you’re buying a quality model. The right dealer, certification and financing can put you in the boat of your dreams.

A pre-owned boat from a certified dealer is designed to provide years of enjoyment on the water. The models are meant to be of the same quality as a new model, but cost a fraction of the price. Look for a fiberglass model, as these are designed to last longer than other materials. You’ll need an engine free from excessive use; a recreational model rather than one for company use is preferred.

Avoid buying a used boat from a private sale. Although it may seem as if you’re getting a great deal, you can’t be certain of their claims. Additionally, even if they feel they’ve cared for their boat properly, there’s no way of knowing if there are underlying issues.

Rainy Sunday

Here it is the big Labor Day Weekend and people everywhere are at the beach, at the lake, or having a picnic with family and friends. And it is raining today. There is not much chance of it stopping long enough to enjoy the outdoors according to the weather forecast. So, phooey! I guess we will do other things today and try to get everyone together tomorrow instead. Surely we can have a small window of sunshine on this last weekend of summer?

Always have a spare

Whether you have been a professional musician for many years, or just starting out, having spare equipment available as back-up in case your “main” equipment suddenly becomes available is always a smart idea. With a little bit of research, one does not have to spend a lot of money on that spare equipment, however. Sometimes you can find really good used equipment through newspapers, or even find new equipment like an affordable amp online using shopping browsers.

It’s nice to know

A few weeks ago a customer came into the store and was talking to us about how her son-in-law was suffering from welts all over his body. I asked her a few questions about the situation and suggested that it might be bed bugs. The pharmacist intervened and insisted that it couldn’t be bed bugs. Well, we conversed for quite a while and I recommended that the customer spend some time on the Internet and look up bed bugs.

Tonight the customer came into the store and looked me up. She reminded me that she was the lady who had talked to me about the bed bugs, and she came into the store to tell me that I was right! I sure wish that the pharmacist was working today that had insisted that it couldn’t be bed bugs! He’s working tomorrow, and I will be sure to tell him that I was right! It’s nice to know that there are customers that will come back in and let us know in cases like this! And it’s always nice to know that I was right!

Lifts Lifts and More Lifts

A couple of years ago we bought one of those “put it together yourself” kits that resulted in a large garage in our back yard. My husband has been filling it with classic cars and motorcycles and all kinds of tools. We already have a car lift permanently installed in one of the bays. He uses it a lot, and he likes to brag to his friends about it, and he offers to his friends the opportunity to come use the lift if they need to work on their own cars.

Lately I’ve been hearing him talking about getting a motorcycle lift, too. I guess it makes sense to have one if he is going to be working on motorcycles a lot. In the interest of helping him to do some comparison shopping (always looking for ways to help him out when it comes to shopping around and hopefully saving some money) I sent him the http://www.bestbuyautoequipment.com/Motorcycle-Lifts-s/292.htm link that I found online.
