Awesome Family Boats Training in Fort Lauderdale

My wife and I have been talking about buying a boat for at least a dozen years. There were always so many reasons the purchase wouldn’t be feasible for us, such as the expense, I spend too much time at work, there’s too much to do at the house, and we were still growing our family. Once again, I brought up the topic after the kids were asleep. My wife gave me those eyes. Every married guy knows what I’m talking about; the eyes that say “haven’t you given up on that yet”. I know you know the look I’m talking about. Finally, she suggested that we go out to dinner on Saturday night and discuss it outside of the house. Although it might be a baby step for most, it was a step in the right direction for me.

That Saturday night, we hired a sitter and went out to a local restaurant for dinner. The idea of getting a boat didn’t come up over dinner. I didn’t want to push her because then I would be shot down completely. When our dessert came, she began to talk about getting the boat. I never knew that she had any knowledge about how to go about buying a boat and being safe on it. I just planned on going on Craigslist and buying one. Obviously, that wasn’t good enough for her.

My wife told me that she would only be on board with purchasing a boat if I agreed to two very important things. In my head I figured she was concerned about the paint color and the name. No, not my wife. She said we had to have a pre-purchase inspection before making a decision. That certainly was a shocker for me. The wife also said that we had to take family boats training from Simex International Marine Surveyors in Fort Lauderdale. Considering we had never owned a boat before, I agreed with her demands and I’m so glad that I did.

I was able to negotiate a great deal because of the pre-purchase inspection done by Simex International Marine Surveyors in Fort Lauderdale. The marine surveyor provided me with a detailed report which proved to be a beneficial negotiating tool for me. Besides, it made me aware of the true condition of the vessel.

"A customer is the most important visitor. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption of our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider to our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so. -- Mahatma Gandhi"
