Re: 89 Truant Triad 370

I think this wins the prize for the least information in a boat for sale ad. Actually, it does not even say if a boat is indeed for sale?

Re: 89 Truant Triad

I know!
I was just getting used to this forum.
It is actually a Truant Triad 37' 1989 (-not the 370.- couldn't figure out how toi delete that!)
I will admit I still can't figure out how to edit on this site.
We are asking $98,500 and it it loaded.- water maker, central vac.....
as well as new davits, bimini and brig dingy, etc.
It was a live aboard and definitely an offshore west coast boat.
We are in Gibsons BC but the boat will be in Vancouver in Feb. and Mar.
Things have changed for us so we are selling it.

I have to agree there.
To the OP, I was the person who emailed you asking for details, if you guys copy and paste from that .doc to the ad, and add a few pictures, you'd have one of the best ads going instead. Really good info there. :-)
I'd love to take a look at her when you get to Vancouver, assuming I've sorted out my current boats.
