Re: Can't seem to buy a boat

We were boat shopping last summer and hit a lot of dead ends with craigslist and sailboatlistings.com

Eventually, we saw a listing we liked with a local broker and he had us viewing the boat that same day and we launched it and sailed away one week later. When we met the owner at the closing, he told us he had the boat on craiglist for a year with no inquiries. Maybe they were all going to his junkmail folder? If there's a phone # on the ad, call it!

If you go to a marina with a large yard, you'll often see many boats in the yard for sale, especially during the summer season when they should be in the water.
