Semiconductor supply chain is my primary business so I am seeing it first hand. Components are going for 10-100x normal pricing with huge demand.
You are correct. 52 weeks is the current lead time for components in the Telecom industry. Add 3-4 weeks production time and 6 weeks for shipping. Shipping cost and time is increasing as well. It all adds up to price increases and inflation. How long until interest rates go up and we see a downturn for 12-18 months or longer?

I reached out in March to a local dealer looking for a year old 22' bowrider in Fall of 21 or Fall of 22. I am still waiting to hear back, but wanted to get my name on the list. We will see how the pricing looks when/if something comes up.
