Well, it definitely appears to be a fixer upper, but seriously should they not be offering someone the 25,000 to take it off their hands?

That's not a boat, that's a planter.

Although, getting pedantic, it's not necessarily a bad "for sale" picture, it's a bad boat "for sale".

No, it just needs tires "to move it." Which is all the seller really wants!

I bet the current owner will even throw in all the branches and whatever other garbage they can manage to stow(hide), all for free!!

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

Hmmmm, boat sitting crossways on road, far away from anything else that will burn, no vehicle attached to it, jack stand is down..... makes you wonder if there's some marital or financial strife attached to this unfortunate accidental incident.

Lol! Name has gone from "Kidd'n Around" to "Not Kidd'n Around"!

Side bets on whether the skipper calls himself "Captain Kidd"?

Hey, around here, he can get $500 for that foot unit! Of course, it will cost him tons to get rid of the hull in a landfill...

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

So what do you get if you take a Trimaran, remove the mast and keel, fill it with heavy batteries and solar panels and then try and use it. Well a weekend cottage that ain't going anywhere fast. Oh you just hope you can get your investment back by flogging it to someone else:

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

You get a tri that is about as useful as a round topped barge that cannot carry much weight and is useful only as a bachelor pad tethered to a mooring ball...

What a shame to remove the mast and rigging... Why do folks not just buy a power boat when they want such a monstrosity, and sell sailboats to those who want a sailboat? Sometimes people are beyond me...

This isn't even a good condo on the water. It probably has a closet size of space below.
