esp if it's a brand new boat.
Dealers are selling demo Tideraces in the Xcite and Xplore for $2300-$2800. Some w. compass or keel strip. In classic layup.
You did well.
The market is funny for Tiderace. The rave reviews are all out there, like when the Cetus was intro'd. As w. Cetus a number of instructors and coaches have picked up a Tiderace which for some ppl adds to the cachet.
Yet there are dealers in the Midwest and Fla who have had Tiderace demos for sale since May and haven't moved them even after dropping the price.
A midwest paddle shop is dropping the line and they quickly clearanced out all but one Tiderace boat in the heavy duty Hardcore layup.
The name isn't as well known as the other Brit makes and Tiderace dealers few and far between at the moment. In time this can change.
You may like the boat so well that it's moot anyway.
Agree it takes a season to really start to know a boat. C'mon back here sooner w. first impressions.
