Re: Post the worst 'For Sale' picture you've seen.

The last photo - OhMy

How can someone think sending a photo like that is going to attract a prospective buyer.

Only if they have lived solo on a boat for too long and that mess is now normal living

Re: Post the worst 'For Sale' picture you've seen.

This is the best of the photos. $850 in Seattle's craigslist. If you want to see the rest of the photos they are much worse.

Re: Post the worst 'For Sale' picture you've seen.

Someone should start a new thread on the worst crew wanted ads ever. I saw one tacked up in a marina down in St. Thomas that said something like, "Woman crew wanted. Must be able to cook, clean, and kill cockroaches."

Talking Re: Post the worst 'For Sale' picture you've seen.

Is you partner hanging around the house too much, buy them this to restore

eBay Australia: Buy new & used fashion, electronics & home d

I never did see that Iroqouis, but would like to know if it's still for sale.

My guess is that the poor fellow tried to do every single thing on the boat at the same time, and this mess was the result, which is why he wanted to sell it.

Just guessing...

Re: Post the worst 'For Sale' picture you've seen.

Oh my God! Was just browsing on sailboatlistings.com and came across an ad with the following, as the one and only picture of the boat. What are these people thinking!?!

"I've got cataracts! Why should you get to see the boat any differently than I do".

Maybe that's what he was thinking.
