It says right in the ad been to Brisbane and back to SF many times. So it must be a blue water boat!

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

"Custom" boats scare me. "Custom" boats with engine controls surrounded and possibly restricted by cushions scare me even more.

This is on a VERY pricey boat. I hope, for the buyer, some more thought was put into the rest of her.

Very odd. Winch isn't self tailing and the traveller isn't rigged. How expensive was this boat?

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

Has anyone seen this on craigslist? That's the only picture posted.

It makes me think the guy's wife said 'sell that boat' and he says 'I'm trying.'
