You might want to patent the idea. If it works, we'll be seeing a lot of similar advertising on here and you'll be rich.

If it was me I would say free sailboat to woman, further requirements must deaf and mute, independent wealth a plus. I can see them lining up at dock right now.

At least you rcv'd some posts. No one has been interested in my proposal at all.

Really quite simple - trade land for boat.

Yep! I'm still stuck on the hard racing dinghies in cold windy conditions at best - nearly a year on since 1st posting here. I have great experience with boat cosmetics and minor to intermediate mechanical/electrical repair. Here is a tip - go out and get yourself a tube of noalox and various sizes of heat shrink tubing and put them in the boat stores. Always check connections before calling a pro and rebuild them yourself using the aformentioned.

Oh yeah! have to agree with the lads better mention free to females only!! Ding!

Free Sailboat

Thanks for the laughs, helping refine the ad. I did change it for other posts but figured that being this is the women afloat section that it was a sacred space, although I and others have defiled it now. Sorry ladies......../)........

The joke is not so old. The sad truth of the matter is last summer before I got the v222, I was showing hull one of The Toy to a neighbor. He brought a friend with him that actually proposed marriage 5 minutes after having made my acquaintance. The guy even said those three little words. I did not know whether to laugh my self silly or hit him.
Just goes to show it takes all kinds.......
The up side is us old gals ain't that stupid. I told his to build his own boat.


ROFLMAO
