Well isn't that nice.
Some people are a a bit picky on the floating ability of boats. Me? No way!

You may be better off with the bait. That model may be worth more than a sailboat that made it though Michigan winters!!

What caught my eye was the ad copy. Seriously? Does this guy think that this diatribe is the best way to sell his boat? He mentions his psychologist and I think he needs to spend a lot more time there; he sounds a little unstable to me. So, tell me, do any of you read this ad and think, "Yeah! That's the kind of guy that I want to buy a boat from!"?
I'll bet some of our CF members in Key West will know this guy.

I like that.

I want to paint our newly aquired canal-side cottage in traditional 50s pink, tangerine, or turquoise. I am being voted down.

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

Fun for Fridays. My co worker, looking for a boat, curses me. Apparently I have nothing better to do then send him these links "Check this one out. That's a nice looking one?"

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

I like the Gavres too - Aluminium, gantry - potentially great for long term cruising. The paint is a bit garish but it's only paint.

I agree. Looks like a decent boat, especially for high latitudes. I'd probably keep the paint job, too. It'll be good for the kids.

What do you mean you can't see clearly? Hey, do you think you might be coming down with cataracts?
