Last year in the winter I bought a little sprit-rig sailboat from a neighbour for $400. Cute little wooden thing that was fun to sail. It even had an electric trolling motor, which I never used. But I also have the ‘zodiac’ Mercury 14’ inflatable with a 25 hp 4-stroke. That one’s much better for crabbing, and I’ve been diving off of it too. The little wooden boat hasn’t seen the water in a year.
I erected the mast, hoisted the sail, put a ‘FOR “SAIL”’ on the boom, and parked it in the front yard. It’s been raining, so I covered it up. Today when I got home, I took the covers off of it. Less than an hour later, a neighbour came up to my door and wanted to buy it. They have kids or grandkids, and they said it would be just the thing. The kids don’t much care for their 26-footer.
I got $400 for it, too.
