Brokers are like politicians, will tell you any line of bullshit just to make the sale.
Me, he baited me in till the end saying the seller wanted to take my Parker as part of the deal, a line of bullshit just to get me sucked in.
Broker also told me the boat had "improved scuppers"
I bought the boat anyway, kept the Parker and the broker told me "since I made my 10% commision on this sale I will list your Parker and only take 5% for the sale"
He sent a few potential buyers to me and on the phone with him and running numbers naturally he told me a figure they were offering and then after he took his 10% commision ..............
I sold the boat on my own to someone who saw it at my house, fuck him!
Ronnie have you run this issue by Steve Law? I am curious as to why your scuppers are not the same height as other 28 Seaworthy boats I have seen on this site. I am looking to buy a downeast boat for my next boat and scupper height is high on my list since I had a boat with a wet deck also. Good luck with what ever decision you go with to correct the problem.
