How about minding your own business?

Who cares if it sells for more, but you still lose $ in the sale overall? Do you sell solar?

Should you do an $80k upgrade to get $50k more sale price?

I’m fine, thank you.
I just happen to change houses a lot.
It’s not an investment strategy. I have other holdings.

The nerve of people [emoji23]

My problem is lack of house commitment.
I buy one, make careful upgrades that are likely to yield a return (or at least not a loss), find another home, and do it again.

This is a meaningless challenge , an attack challenge, and I’m going to side with John here.

He was talking about financial merits and value.
You can discuss these without “enjoying” driving.

If you took these as “cheap shots”, that’s your own perception. I said it is exactly why SOME people buy them. I don’t recall specifically saying or implying that was why YOU bought one.

Apples to oranges.
And 5 of those 600s weigh less (and take up much less space) than any reliable equivalent inboard or stern drive.

Anyone who drove 60-80s cars knows it could be hairy, even at 75-80 mph. Aerodynamics, braking, tires and stability were poor. Headlights were weak.

It’ll take time to get this right.
It’s hilariously audacious of them to cite low costs…twice, completely ignoring that it costs 3x more than a boat with ICE. It is in no way cheaper.

That’s going to be fishing boats.
They hop lake to lake the most (by a landslide).

They should be flushing the bilge and live wells after every dip. Hot water, bleach, flush, and let fully dry...
