I priced my boat 10 K under market value on Ebay

EBS001 Your numbers are right. 1988 Cal 33's sell for 59-60K. My Reserve is less than 50K

I priced my boat 10 K under market value on Ebay

EBS001 You are right I really don't think that many boats are sold on Ebay. I think after the auction the Lurkers feel more comfortable without a
legal 3rd party pushing them along a expensive transaction and visit the boat.

However I'm looking for exposure and I'm getting it!

I priced my boat by your numbers 10K under market and I guarantee there
isn't another boat with these many recent improvements.

That said I've not met many brokers who work hard and know the product
they are selling. On principal I'd rather sell Fairwinds for what I need out of her and properly market the boat.
