My grandfather, an avid fisherman and owner of many boats passed on this piece of wisdom - "the two happiest days in a boat owner's life are 1) the day he buys the boat and 2) the day he sells the boat". Apparently the owner(s) of the Aquatica are anxious to have one of those 'happy' days.

A local boat owner I know uses this to her advantage: if you've got cash on hand and find someone anxious to sell, you can practically steal a good boat.
