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

This thread has enlightened me to why there are so many boat brokers. Even though I generally don't like salespeople- they do serve a purpose.

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

I was browsing ads in my area and found this gem. Why can't people put a little more into there ads? But it has new stuff....

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

A description almost tells as much:

"17or18ft swift craft seagull I think no motor and needs a new floor .would be a good project for someone need to know more call"

How can you "think no motor" or not get a tape measure

That's the trouble with people who can't/won't punctuate. I'd suspect that means
"...swift craft seagull, I think. No motor..."

Yep, looks like you've nailed it.
The pic just needs rotated clockwise 90 degrees. It is from a low angle. I'll bet it's a pain to get in.

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

Okay, another that's probably not "the worst." But seriously? A rocking chair in a sailboat? What's that for? Is that to prove that you NEVER actually take this boat away from the dock?

It really wouldn't be that difficult with a 60 ft waterline and a 20 ft beam and 150+ hp engine.
