Re: $158 ebay sailboat heads to sea
In the news article the owner states . . . "There were so many people who wanted her," Williams said in a telephone interview Sunday night. "But I got her."
That doesn't equate . . . if soooo many people really wanted her, she wouldn't have sold for that price.

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.
