Re: Portabote 8 or 10' near New Orleans
I just bought an 8 footer. It had been used less than a dozen times between 2 owners. I had been looking for 6 months. Lots of 12 footers...usually $700-$1200. Then some 10 footers. They were generally around $600-$1000. But finding an 8 footer has a challenge. First one I saw was in Los Angeles for $1100.,400 miles away. Then another in Oregon
, 600 miles away for $500! I tried to get him to hold it if I paid full price
and have my friend pick it up coming down from the NW in 2 month but no go.
Then I decided to run an ad on craigslist closer to me...ISO Porta-Boat 8'-10". I got a call in a few days from a party in Fremont, Ca. We agreed on $550. Then I learned the secret handshake you need to own one.
