Good FSBO Websites?

Hi All -
I am in the midst of a renewed search for my first cruiser and have been tracking the major websites which were useful to me in the past (yachtworld, sailing texas, boats.com, boattrader).

Are there any other sites that you strongly suggest -- particularly sites that are good sources of "by owner" listings?

Thanks!

boatsville.com isn't bad.

If you're looking for certain boats, look for class or owners group sites also. Most have a classifieds section.

Also, most areas of the country have a "want ad" type magazine that comes out weekly or so... and most will have boat listings in them. Some areas may even have a Boat Trader type magazine which is a want ad magazine fo just boat related ads.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks Guys. I think I hit most of these sites in my searches and will try the others -- I just wanted to make sure . . .!

Following on SD's comment, I will be travelling to Jacksonville FL to inspect a few boats in the next week or so, I'll check the local press, but if anyone knows a local source down that way, I'd appreciate the heads-up.

Thanks again!

Internet is great for research but don't underestimate the power of your feet.
So far we are 2 for 2. Each time we did the net search thing and had lists.... at the end of both days we stumbled upon each of our boats by walking the docks and yards.
Neither boat had even made it onto the brokers web sites yet. In both cases we just managed to be in the right place at the right time.

Check the websites of local yacht clubs as they frequently have "buy and sell" sections - and some allow ads from non-members.

I'm interested in those stories. Was their a for sale sign? Someone just said sure my boat is for sale? Sounds like an interresting story.
