Thanks for being interested. It really is a great dinghy
and I want it to go to a good home. Where will you be keeping it? I want it to be in a place with good clean water

Also, I'm sure you understand that I'm a bit nervous that I do not know anything about you. Could you send me a picture of yourself? I understand that you aren't in the states. What country are you in? What is your business? I might want you to do some other business with you. Would you be able to get a good price
on a Garmin chartplotter
wherever you are?
Thanks for your interest. I really think you'll love the dinghy
