Just joined The Hull Truth, trying to post our sailboat For Sale, been searching for 15 minutes now and cannot find any way to Create New Post??? I see Create New Thread etc. Perhaps I'm missing it, am frightfully stupid, or just now seeing it? Sorry to appear clueless but would love some guidance. Thank you! :-)

Solid advice. I would add one thing - listen to Jules:



Use correct English in your ad. "Lose" is not equivalent to "loose."

"To" "too" and "two" all have different meanings. As do "there" "they're" and "their."

Frankly, if you can't be bothered to use decent grammar and have mispelled words in this day and age, it tells me that perhaps you are not the most detail oriented individual and that attitude likely carried over to other areas in your life - like boat maintenance.

Default Browsing for CC Boats on CL

Please fill me in…Why does this forum seem negative about boats on Craigslist? Is CL considered a competitor to THT?

There is a lot of CC inventory on CL and boats can be sorted by geography yet CL seems frowned upon by your readers.

Thanks for any insights.

Hi. Where did you get the idea of "Why does this forum seem negative about boats on Craigslist?".

We have members posting ads for their boats with nothing more/no more information in their ad than a Craigslist link - the only thing we require of those members is that they also include an asking price alongside their CL link (per our rules). If our members frown on craigslist ads, that is their perogative(sp?) - and it's likely because they want to see more information on this site <- but that's just a guess on my part.

Does that answer your question? If not, feel free to ask away . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

New to the forum. Have a question about buying a used boat via the forum, but sort of a general question about buying a used boat. Depending on the boat, I'd probably want to have someone more knowledgeable than myself check it out (surveryor). That seems to be standard advice though I'm sure on a less expensive boat and/or a more experienced buyer, it may not be necessary.

Would I be wrong to assume it's not uncommon with transactions here to arrange something like that?

I have more boating experience than buying experience, and I'm a bit too old to make a big mistake at this point with my next purchase. Any info would be appreciated.

Please move to tell me where to move this if this isn't a good place.

Thanks,
Chuck

Hello Hull Truthers. I am wanting to sell my 2006 Lake and Bay but I am not sure how to post it on here. Any help would be much appreciated. Also, if anyone has knowledge about the market for a Lake and Bay flats boat that would be great as well. Have never really entertained the idea of selling till now so I have been out of the game for a while.


Thanks

Can anyone tell me why putting location of the boat is not mandatory? It sure makes finding local boats for sale a whole lot easier....Should be in the title!

Are there any threads concerning the handling of transaction of the sale. I have not even bought a car from a private seller in over 30 years, not sure I am comfortable handing over deposit, checking for liens and being sure I get all the proper documentation. Thanks for any advice.

This is my advice and by no means am I an expert. This is what I do when I buy a car from a private seller. I ask him to meet me at the DMV and that's where I exchange the money after it is confirmed that the title has no liens and can transfer it right there. I would think you could do the same with a boat. The boat I own now I bought new but my last boat I bought through a broker so he took care of everything.
