Wow. Ebay is just not where I'd expect to find any decent sailing gear. Thanks for pointing it out.

Surplus inventory

Yes, the private sellers seem much more reasonable about fair market value right now than the used sail warehouses (which I like).

Some of the used sail warehouses are setting the reserve prices or starting bids too high, whereas the private sellers are allowing the auction market to set the price. The private sellers just want to get rid of the property.

The continuing recession is driving these kinds of auction prices down - sellers parting out boats, folks getting rid of gear after selling their boats, and lien holders disposing of seized personal property.
