    That's what happens when you become the best selling segment in the boating industry. You know, supply and demand. Of course, all these fancy, high tech performance hulls require what? That's right, high tech, high performance powerplants. Which bring about what? Right again- not so high tech, just HIGH PRICE TAGS. You know if you hang a 20-25,000 outboard on the back of a cheap boat, it ain't cheap anymore!!! That's why they say "It's a hole in the water into which you pour money- lots of money". Which is also why they say "You gotta love it!" And most of us probably do. Problem is, many of us, starting with me, can only afford to love it so much. Thankfully, being poor is not illegal or immoral, but it is most definitely inconvenient!

    As long as someone is willing to pay the price they will only keep going up. Look at airplane tickets, the days of the 200 dollar plane ticket are long gone until the planes are half empty things won't change. Pontoon industry will do the same, again law of supply and demand...They supply and demand...we just wish dream and wait for them to be a used pontoon boat.
    I wish you could order a boat the way you want it without buying "Packages" just to get the one option you want. We may have to buy a base boat and add aftermarket options whether it be after market lighting, Tap Fins or whatever you want and build it ourselves.

    That's also why my 7 year old boat is still worth about 80% of what I paid for it.

    Insuranceman, Forester had a bare deck with rails setup available a few years back, but I am afraid they may have gone under. T and M marine had what looked like closeout inventory to me last fall. They were down to about a half dozen boats and they owned Forester.
