The boat is on a trailer in a private storage lot. I can put a sign on it and show it myself. However, not may "drive-by" potential buyers would see it, so if I do it myself, I would be relying on the advertisements to draw potential buyers. I've also considered potentially moving it to a storage lot alongside a road where traffic to/from the marinas passes by (where I would have to pay a storage fee). However, the brokers not only want 10% selling commission, but they also want $40-75/mo. to keep the boat on their yards (where it might or might not be visable amoung the many boats in the yard) while they are "selling" it.
