Default The best "Boat" on Craig's list

ok this one takes the cake!

Ready for electric motor, kyack paddle, or tiny gas engine, this rain barrel / drain pipe is almost finished, just do a few tweaks and you have a fun floating boat - ish toy for the sunny holiday weekend.

i spent $40 on the materials and it's 90% finished, the entry hatch is more child size, easy to enlarge, temporarily using a racheting tie down to secure it all together, you can provide your own, the cheap price wouldn't include that.
Weighs about 35 pounds, about 5 feet long.

we are on Highway 9, south of Arlington by Safeway,
Text is best, anytime is good, i work evenings till late.

This one is my favorite. It's older so the actual post went down but still; it's a classic:



From the Craigslist ad itself: “1984 Kawasaki X2 with a 18 horse outboard Johnson. Sumbeech will fly. Nicknamed the honey hauler for a good reason. Float up to the beach on this bad boy and the hoes will flock. Happens to me every year. Every summer it’s the same old thing, give me a ride they ask.. “I’ll take my bikini top off they say, but it doesn’t end there.” With this 1984 saki powered by a 18 hp two stroke Johnson, you’ll feel like breaking bad mixing the oil and gasoline. Plus that extra seat and power means you can load this baby up with all the biggest beach whales… (Trust me, I know.)

This wave slammer hauls!! If the girl doesn’t take her top off, that’s ok cause the wind will blow it off for sure. 40 year old virgin? Girlfriend of wife cut you off at home? No problem. This is the ship for you. Built in 1984, the engineers had poon magnet clearly on the build sheet. This ain’t no fishin’ boat but it’s been hauling (!) for years. This is a bachelors dream right here and you won’t find a better price for this mini-yacht – one easy payment of $650. I hate to see her go but it’s time to let some other guy take this gem down to tuna town.

This boat will make her wet, guys…"
