You would think that if you are selling something for $100,000 you'd post some pretty dang good pictures right? Maybe this was a case of the seller not really wanting to sell that bad...

The seller has a 33% feedback rating on ebay!! The window and door that you can see look like Home Depot items.

Well, that applies to about 2/3rds of the pictures in this thread! I am constantly amazed by the pictures that some people will put in their ads. Either they are amazingly stupid about how to sell something, or they really don't want to sell it at all.

When brokers prepare the ads, there's no excuse for a poorly presented boat. And from what I understand, brokers are the ones who prepare the listings on YW. Sometimes the listing does more to chase a buyer away than attract one.

Re: Post the Worst "For Sale" Picture You've Seen.

This is the sister ship to the famous "Stars and Stripes" cat that won back the Americas Cup in 1988. Unfortunately it was demasted but the mast was recovered. It has not been restepped and there is other damage to the boat. But not one pic of the boat as she is now and every pic seems like it's from 1988.
Will someone please tell me why I can't right click and save and post these YW pics. I've done it before.

Sand crab, are you using firefox? I know I've had troube w/ saving pictures in a slideshow like that in firefox. I usually just open Internet Explorer and go to the page and save them that way.

I use Google Chrome. I tried IE like you suggested with no results either. I can right click on other sites so what's the deal? Is it copyright protected?

FWIW
I think the viking ship restaurant pics accurately show what it is. It may be the worse boat ever but it's not the worse for sale pic.
