Thats OK, 80% of what you buy at a swap meet never works out!!! You're saving 80% in everything you buy!

The Dania one is HUGE, and definitely worth going to see if you're in S FL. Ram, is it still at the Jai Alai fronton? I would venture there are deals aplenty this year.

I'm jammed at the office this week, and have plans Sunday. Saturday is a possibility. Are you heading down? Some friend's--Jim & Denise (can't remember their boat--they're from St. Augustine)--are working a booth down there somewhere and wanted us to come down. The problem is I need a LOT of stuff, and I'd probably spend too much $$$$$.

Same here. What's your location? We're south of the Lake Worth inlet turn basin just south of the Sailfish Club.

Thumbs up Geat Success

The Boater's Swap Meet at the Bradenton YC yesterday AM was a great success. Though small, because of the number of manufacturers in the area (some going out of business), and the number of boater's, there were a lot of excellant deals made.

Although in some cases, exchanges will merely amount to junk moving from one family's garage to another for a modest fee, there were also some real bargins. One fellow was able to purchase a new, all but still in the box, 2000 watt Xantrex (Heart) Inverter/Charger for $75.00 USD! We managed to obtain a new, still in the box (with the $455.00 USD price tag still affixed), Richie Compass, to replace our 23 year old, discolored, all but unreadable OEM Marco Polo for $100.00 USD. We also, finally, managed to sell our 20 year old Magma Charcoal Grill--of which there were many offered, but none but ours cleaned and polished-- for $10.00 (and free up a corner of the garage) and a tried out once heavy Faberware 8-Cup SS Coffee Percolator for $12.00, or less than half its retail price (my wife prefers the tea kettle and there isn't room for both in the pots locker).

Other values included a new FX-55 anchor for $400.00; and, a 15' Forespar spinnaker pole for $100.00.

We are now planning next years event.
