Okay, so this is not about a worst picture, but here's another one of my pet peeves when it comes to sailboat ads...
You find a listing for a fairly popular boat. This boat came in both a shoal draft
, and a deep draft
version. Let's just say, for example, that the shoal draft version draws 4'3" while the deep draft version draws 5'8". This is a well-known model, and these are the only two versions that were sold. The listing that you're looking at says the boat has a draft of 5 feet even. WTH!?!
Is this a custom boat? Doesn't say so. Perhaps this is the shallow draft
version, but the owner has loaded it down with so much crap that it's riding 9" deeper in the water
than it was designed to. Either that, or the seller just has his head
up his backside and hasn't got the least friggin' clue what his boat's real draft is. (My money
is on the latter.)
The moral of the story is, if you're going to sell your boat then spend some time and find out what the designed specifications for it are, and if you have done things to change those specs then make that clear. When you list your boat showing significantly different specs than any that the manufacturer ever published, you need to explain!
