I think it's only a catamaroon when it's stuck on the beach. Cara-marooned!

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

I've previously posted this link, but it's an ongoing collection.
It's not boat related, but very similar to this thread.
Enjoy, or at least be glad they're not YOUR house you're trying to sell.

Terrible real estate agent photographs

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

Well, here's another on that I just came across. I think the point of this picture is to show you how completely cluttered up your boat can become if you really, really try!



Seriously. Who can be stupid enough to think that this picture is going to help to sell their boat?

These last 2 photos were obviously sent by some guy who has told his wife, 'yes, Honey, I have listed the boat with photos'! Cheers, Phil

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

Sometimes yachts have been left standing for and it makes you wonder just how long. How about a photo which shows a book of tide times dating from 2006

I have a 2010 ICW guide on my boat, and it has not been left to stand at all. Some people never throw anything out.

While time and tide may wait for no man, maybe they wait for each other?

Nothing says "Yacht" like mini-blinds...

I love the paper ones that look like someone repurposed a paper doll project. Then top them off with yellowed scotch tape and water stains where the ports were sweating.
