Well it likely started of at a $1 and a bunch of people put in bids of up to 150 or so. But yea, not a lot of bids could have been put in till you get to 158.

I liked how he thought he could just sail a boat he paid 158 for form Connecticut to Florida, with just a few bologna sandwiches and not even have to do a few repairs. His wife should just stay in the Philippines.
