Hi, It's been a few years since I posted and I'm looking for a little advice in the buying
and selling arena, plus this post will serve as feeler for interest in some "stuff"
I own an 85 Catalina 30
TR. She is now for sale
and I've got a couple prospect buyers very interested. However, I suspect there will be some negotiation. I was thinking the following might offset a lower offer:
First, I built a trailer
for my boat
8 yrs ago. It is a storage trailer
(no suspension, no brakes, etc) for the purpose of going 1 1/2 mile from my house to the marina at no more than 10 MPH. No way would it be suitable for long distance transportation. Prospective buyer "John Doe" wants to buy my boat
but doesn't need the trailer. So I'm looking for someone who wants a trailer and would give me his cradle
plus some money
(what's a C30 trailer worth?)
Next John isn't interested in using the spinnaker
. So, if he buys the boat less the spinnaker
, pole halyard
loop, and mast
top crane, is there a market for them?
I have a Martec folding prop and John doesn't care about that. I remember paying almost $300 for it. I threw the solid prop away years ago. (Stupid). Perhaps I could find someone who wants to trade
a two blade and some bucks
Last, John isn't interested in the Garhauler adjustable genoa
car system so that's on the auction
John however does want a dodger
which my boat doesn't have. Perhaps he'd up his offer if I could provide one. If there is anyone out there with a dodger for sale
and would like to trade
for any of my "stuff" consider this an invitation.
For those who might ask, I am located in West Michigan.
