It's back again! That post-Apocalypse, time-traveling, subcompact catamaran!
The price listed is probably incorrect. You'll likely need to add three more zeros.
Isn't she lovely!

No, I'd leave the zeros like they are and tell him that is what he is going to have to pay ME, if he wants me to take it off his hands!

Any red blooded Aussie male will tell you a good boat is a chick magnet. There's proof. That photo makes it worth more to me.

It doesn't have a gearbox.
You can turn it 360 degrees.

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

Looks like it is needed both ways. There's as much sea inside as outside!

Or is it a cheaper way to have a Tug-a-Tub??

What's really a shame about this ad is that there isn't a photo:

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

Can someone explain to me how this picture (one of only two in the ad, the other is almost as useless) is supposed to help sell the boat!?!



(And, no, it's not that jet-ski that is for sale. It's a 45', custom built sloop that they're trying to sell with this picture.)

I suspect the wife said sell it and the husband said "I will list it"
