It's not you? Sounds like you. You've been talking about taking some time off, haven't you? Trying to keep costs down? You're located in the US, aren't you? Yup. Must be you. We're keeping our boat, thanks.

What will you do without your boat for the next year?

I'm almost tempted to contact the bloke and find out what the story is.
He posted it in one town and now has cross posted it to several towns.

Maybe not a whole lot of interest in his deal.

Actually I'm on the LIS but sadly not quite that creative of thought.

You never know, someone just might take him up on it. They have a sailboat just floating around, don't want to pay slip fees anymore, good way to get rid of a boat. And there is no harm in asking. Wish the guy luck.

Something tells me the 'buyer' is looking for an escape. Johnny law breathing down his neck? Child support overdue? Wages being garnished? Just leave town and all your troubles behind.

Wait til he finds out how much $ it takes to keep a boat operating properly.

Nothing is free.
