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

As an amateur photographer, I don't understand how you can not have great boat pics when trying to sell a boat.

Here is the worst one I have seen.

Nothing wrong with his pics but a boat just listed today over here has this description.

"2007 Sanctuary Cove Boat Show demonstrator, only three years old''

Guess maths is not his strong point.

Nothing wrong with those pictures, I can clearly see Gilligan, The Skipper, Professor and Mary-Anne.

Ok, that last one wins. I would happily, happily pay to get that mosquito generator off of my lawn. Imagine the audacity to try and charge $500 to get someone to remove it! Too much.
