    Selling a boat - reverse auction?

    Your analysis is spot-on. Thats why I thought you were a (micro) economist. I particularly liked the last sentence (price-fixing vs buyer-finding). PD: I have taught microeconomics for 25+ years.

  13. Dear Mr. Bottles:


    I have followed the Francis Lee thread closelly.

    Will be travelling to Seattle to visit my son (UW) beggining September. ¿Would it be possible to take a look at your boat? I have long been an admirer of the designer -- in fact I wrote an article (published in Argentina) on his work  a couple of years ago.

    I expect to attend the forthcoming Wooden Boat Festival.

      FRANCIS LEE will be exhibited at the September Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend.

      Please introduce yourself when you find her, don't know what dock yet, but in the past we have been on the center dock.

      Come by on Friday or Saturday and I will introduce you to Bob Perry who will likely be aboard.
