All those pictures, and no boat. Looking at the description, looks like all that's being old is the actual parts shown in the picture.

He is selling the rig, listed under parts, no boat shown because the boat is not for sale, just the parts.

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

I saw one the other day the seller is representing his vessel as Bristol fashion. The VERY FIRST pic is of a very dirty and unkept cockpit of old lines and peeling varnish.

Another was a such a close up of the companion way that it took three more pics and a mighty imagination to know what I had seen. Of course they were blurry.

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

Here's one that is pretty pointless. Granted the first two pictures do actually show the boat, albeit from quite a distance, but the last picture is a joke at best.

Photos ought to be current. I can only hope this was from way back when such garments were fashionable, otherwise it is a little creepy.

I'm not sure that was ever "fashionable", at least not where I live!
