Just wanted to point out that it sure seems this coming season is going to be as crazy as last season. If you are going to be purchasing a bimini top, speakers, ballast, or any accessory for your boat i'd highly recommend getting your order in ASAP so you are sure that you get it by spring. Items will sell out like they did last year early and you could be stuck waiting months.

For boats, i can tell you OIB had 2750 boats listed in early Dec. and now there are about 2565 listed. That may seem like a lot but generally this time of year boat inventory goes UP, not down! Last year in March there were over 5000 new and used boats listed. I'd be shocked if we see 3300 at any point this year, which means again we'll have used boat prices that are sky high. So, if you in the market for a boat and find one at a reasonable price now, pull the trigger. Do not wait because these boats will sell immediately in the spring. I can't count how many times i had boat sellers tell me they sold their boats in 15 minutes this past season on OnlyInboards. These were not "steals" either, they were just priced reasonably and there were so many buyers that they'd get 30 leads in the first hour.

Anyway, just a friendly heads up for fellow WW'ers.

Curious to see your stats in the 3rd-4th week of February. That will paint a far more accurate picture.

thought of selling mine, but nervous about the cost of replacing it. I typically buy a few years old, I'm sure those will be the sweet spot for sellers

I can tell you inventory is now down to 2500 listed boat on the site and over 150 boats have been listed in that time, so that's about 200 boat swing in just a week. i know there will be dealers getting inventory still but anything from 3-15 years old will be a HOT seller.

Amazing. Thanks for the info. If any accessory is coming from China, jump on it now. Factories are all backed up. Container shipping from China to the USA typically runs about 3-4 weeks and it is now 8 weeks. Prices for shipping a container are sky high (up over 100% this year). I know some people are out of work but I see inflation coming. Prices of goods are going up. Container shipping costs are sky high. FedEx and UPS are raising prices. The dollar is very weak and seemingly getting weaker by the day which is contributing to the inflation for all imported accessories. Finally, add in good old supply and demand pricing.
