Yes the drogue is sold. If I'd done my homework better I would have priced it much higher. While I was trying to figure out how to box it up with a sturdy enough container to keep all 65 pounds of it together, to send it across the country, someone else came along who was local and there would be no boxing or shipping
necessary. So I dumped the first offer and took the second at a slightly higher price to me also.
Another thing that swayed me to cancel the first deal and go with the second is that it appeared that the first one was a business who might resell it at a nice profit. Or maybe he really did want it for his private boat? Who knows? The second was an actual cruiser, here locally, who wanted it so he could cross an ocean on a budget
. My pop always told me that the deal isn't done til the money
is in your hand.
Please don't make judgement calls on an online forum about people you don't know.
