Anyone score a sweet deal at the DRE swap?

I showed up a bit late on sunday, seemed like some lucky bastiges made off with all the screamin deals. If you're one of the lucky bastiges, brag away...

I was there on saturday looking for frame parts. Many nice deals on top quality used boats. I do not understand why someone would buy a new piece of junk boat when for the same price or even less, when they could purchase top quality name brand used boats, that have many, many years of river miles left in them.

The deal of the day that I saw was a 13' DRE boat, fully outfitted with a fishing frame, sawyer oars, pfd's, dry box, cooler, everything else that you would want for a fishing rig go for $4k.

It had to be a $9k rig, I am pretty sure the boat never saw water, as the bottom still had a sticker on it.

I thought the NRS 136 for $2600 that was practically brand new was a good deal as well.

I saw a14 ft. Hyside self bailer used in very good to excellent shape for an asking price of 1850$ , but was willing to deal. 13 ft. Riken self bailer with DRE frame and MX F/G oars for 1700$. Problably willing to deal also. Not bad for first rig.
