Only a tad worse than one I "chartered" last year.

HEY NOW!!!

Dude's over-engineered the bullet proof traveler mount! AND... I'll bet that having one really enhances the trimming ability to make this thing fly...

Also... I'll bet nuthin's ever got caught under the ends...

I am pretty dense too.

Pic 4 also had two 1L saline bottles that are mine. I "tested" the water with a little science experiment and found that I was being poisoned actually. I was told the water was fine.

Like I said, I am pretty dense so I believed him. It was after I had been sick several times and was again ill that I ran the "test".

Worst month and a half of my life. (it is too long a story of why I was there for that long)

Ha! I've seen that ad. I'm seriously considering looking at the boat just to get the full experience. I also have so many questions such as, "Why are there twenty pairs of prescription glasses hanging here?" and "Does the fridge in the cockpit work?"


I really wonder how much worse it is than it looks in those pictures.

I wonder if he would part with just the raymarine sun covers, they look to be in great shape, and our boat did not have them aboard when we bought her.

Yeah, it makes me wonder if the boat is in better shape than those pictures make it look(under the massive clutter and unrefrigerated condiments).

I wonder if what we have here is an older liveaboard who had some kind of life event(or death event) and the boat was rooted through or they couldn't properly care for it toward the end.

The mystery of this Florida vessel draws me in.

There won't be much left for the cradle/jack stands to hold on to - or maybe that is the point?

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

I'm just going to guess that this is a good example of being wary of boats with balsa below the waterline?
