      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

Mocking Ads on Craigslist

8,353 posts in this topic

We have the Ugly Boat Admiration Society thread but, I thought a little more focus on the source and a wider focus on boat(y) stuff might entertain. The drawback of this thread is the pictures will eventually go away as the ads die.

 

Here's a piece of gold.

 

 

Bruce Anchor 15 lbs. - $25 (Gig Harbor)

I salvaged this anchor. It's a Bruce style and weighs 15 or 20 lbs. is my guess. Comes with a shot of chain. $25

 

Anyone need an anchor? It's cheap.

There are more than $25 in those nice shiny SS shackles! Looks like three of them too, such a deal...

The chain doesn't look too bad...90 feet of chain would fetch $25, the shackles would be a bonus.

 

 

Now you've set the challenge, I'm sure craigslist and their ilk will be pillaged for crap like this.

A few years back there was a $100 boat offered near here. It was a wooden wreck in someone's back yard held up with a number of Brownell stands in decent condition. I thought of taking a few lengths of wood over, paying the $100, propping up the boat and taking the stands.

 

I thought better of it when i remembered an earlier experience I had had clearing out my mother's house. A book buyer came by and after looking over the books offered me $500 for them. My response was to be clear that I wanted a price on taking all the books out of the house. He came back with $300 and we had a fair deal.

This baby hits the trifecta- deserves to be in this thread, the cool boat thread and the ugly thread as well. Motor is only missing a piston (I guess that means "runs good"). I assume the tires go with it. $1,100 asked but I'll bet will go for less.

Yep, the only conditions where they could barely beat a T-bird was the real light stuff and zephyrs.

 

There was one in Kingston back in the 70's when I had my T-bird there.

 

If I remember correctly they were a tad narrower then the T-bird, by about 6".

1946 Ed Monk Sr. Sailboat - $6500 (Tacoma)
3K83Gf3H35I45Kc5Hed51175d28256b09108d.jp
DEAL FELL THROUGH SO BACK ON MARKET!

Now offering as is for $6000 Firm. Lease is transferable at TYEE. The motor that no longer works, is an Atomic 4 Diesel 16hp.

I have it stored down at Tyee Marina in Tacoma. Family/work issues prevent me from keeping this boat. So unfortunately I will be selling ASAP. Serious inquiries only. Way too many tire kickers and I don't have the time to show you just because your curious... So please be a serious buyer. I'd rather spend more time sending photos as apposed to running down to Tacoma to show someone who isn't ready to purchase.

This boat needs some minor work to the exterior, but nothing major that I can see. It's a beautiful boat looking for the right owner. I've had several people check out the motor and it definitely needs to be replaced. I just have not had time to dedicate myself to change it out or give this wood boat the attention in needs. The longer a wood boat sits, the more work it will eventually need.

Built in Mid 40s in Seattle of stout cedar on oak frames. Moonsail SV.
Beam 9ft , draft 4ft, 7 tons displacement, 4000 lb. ballast, cast iron wood stove, hand carvings and inlay wood work throughout. 6+ lanterns, a lot of character. 3 sails (main and two jibs - decent shape).
5'9" head room in cabin
The boat is wired for shore power, however I do not have much in the way of electronics. A few cabin lights, am/fm radio, older CB, and electric bilge pump. It also has a depth finder.

Not too many of these boats left in this good of shape.
Well known around the Puget Sound.
On the cover of "Cruising the San Juan Islands" -- Bruce Calhoun
New stainless steel rudder -- Spring 2010
New zincs -- February 2012
Bottom Paint -- Spring 2010
Stuffing Box Repacked- Spring 2010

I do not have a current survey on the boat. More pictures available upon request. Photos are from boat this last summer (2012).

Due to the overwhelming number of e-mails I received last go-around I will respond and show in order as I receive them. Only seems fair.

A twin engined boat with 25 HP on one side and 130 HP on the other?

WTF????

 

The 25HP is analogous to a trolling motor. I had a 19' aluminum boat w/a 75HP and 10HP evinrude - I used the 10HP when I wanted to troll at lower speeds that were prone to fouling plugs when running the bigger engine under load at such a low RPM.

Only $200, unlike the

Mock me if you like, but the pic you showed is a Comet; if you go to the ad you'll see the BlackJack Skiff is a pretty cool boat. Personally I would not give $2500 for it in the shape it's in, but looks worth restoring to somebody.

 

They want $200 for the Comet and that's also too much IMHO.

 

They also have 2 Wianno Seniors and those are boats which should not be mocked, they sit about a half-notch below Herreshoff S-Boats in the pantheon of classics.

I found said ad because I was researching Wiannos. You can get a used Wianno for $13,900 with shiny varnish from Crosby. I love wooden boats but in this day and age anyone who tries to charge real money for woodenboats that are "unrestored, need work, do not float, engines have not run, no trailers, need more than paint and varnish" and further goes on "They will have a good investment return IF the labor is done by careful weekend restorers. Great projects to learn about boatbuilding and get a little return for your work!" is asking for it.

 

 

Unlike, say, the guy who was giving away the wooden boat in a Seattle a couple years ago who was willing to pay someone to take the boat away if they'd do it before the week was over and make sure to tell his wife it was gone.

"investment" and "boat" should not be used in the same sentence. And I would prefer to not turn over a Wianno to somebody who is a rank beginner with classic boats. Why is Congress arguing about stupid shit like health care when we have this problem going on?!?

PLENTY of CL ads with old poweboats that have been sitting for DECADES with Goddamn TREES growing in them for "$1,000 OBO" :rolleyes:

Also the ever-popular "no title but have bill of sale". Good luck ever getting a legal set of numbers. "Ideal for crabbing" = totally destroyed interior. Engine would run except for this $5 part I am too lazy to go buy and who cares if it would triple the value of the engine. Suspicious minds would think there was more wrong than that ;)

 

True CL story - I go to see a 15 HP Evinrude. It starts and runs great. The sellers tell me they always run the gas out to avoid carb issues so we do that before I hand over the cash and take it home. So far so good and the engine is a great engine :) It gets to be an even better engine after I buy a new kill switch because you CAN'T TURN IT OFF :angry:

When I bought my Capri 22, it came with a 4-stroke OB that was too powerful and too heavy for the boat. It was winterized. I advertised it for sale, and a prospective buy showed up. He said he'd take it, if he could see it run. We set it up in an old garbage can (the galvanized kind. remember them?), and got it started without too much problem. However there was no tell-tale dribble of water from the cooling system. I was really surprised and very happy when the guy said he'd take it anyway.

"Must bring your only trailer"

That lets me out, I have more than one trailer

But I do wonder what happens with these things. Does anybody who owns a roadworthy trailer need to buy a clapped-out momo that was a low-end boat when it was new? I would think anybody with the the wherewithall to undertake a project like this would already have a better prospect that he/she was already working on

 

God knows -I- am a sucker for homeless derelicts but I have plenty of old boats to work on now

Our 25 horse Evinrude was stolen a couple years ago. One of the nice things about the engine was oil injection, when it worked. It gave up the ghost so I bypassed the cut out switch and disconnected the pump till I had a chance to have it fixed. In the mean time I was running it with mixed gasoline, of course the thieves didn't know this. I wonder what the buyer of the hot engine thought when it froze up? You know it ended up on FleeBay or Craig's Fleece, the worlds largest fences.

We have occasional "CraigsListWars" when people call out individuals running scams. One I *almost* fell for was a guy selling *his* outboard. He had a hell of a time starting it and it pumped no water despite being used daily on his boat :rolleyes: I eventually figured out he was a garage-sale scanvenger and knew almost nothing about the engines he was selling.

Trying to restore that boat would be insane but it might be a good candidate for a Tim Lackey style conversion to an open day boat. It's a good looking hull - take a wrecking bar and big hammer inside and clean it out, cut the house off etc.

 

For someone with the wherewithal, it could make a very nice & unique boat for cheap + a lot of work - offer $200 and start the demolition. :D

How can someone seriously expect $3000 for that piece of flotsam?

Overly proud of their work?

 

I've used this analogy before and, though it is a little crude and harsh, I think it applies.

 

Babies don't know better. They are proud of themselves for many reasons but lack the context to determine what is good, and what is not. They will happily sit in the corner, fill their diaper, reach inside and start painting the walls, maybe even themselves with their chosen medium. If they spy you looking at them they will *beam with pride*, knowing not what they do.

 

I think it's sometimes the same with personal projects. I'm not saying they are necessarily shit but, sometimes our hearts are too close to our projects to see them honestly.

I love the "all receipts" ads.

1979 Shamrock 20 worth maybe $6000 with:

new gps

new fishfinder

new radar

new batteries

new canvas

new engine

new exhaust hose

new seacocks

new cushions

new paint

new running lights

 

So OBVIOUSLY the price is $6,000 + the new retail cost of all that equipment :rolleyes:

Excellent opportunity for individual owner or syndicate of 3 for $5,000 each. Asking $12,000.

 

A syndicate of math-challenged individuals maybe :huh:

Also note the engine appears to rely on gravity to stay in place! :o

 

Then there is this one:

workboat engine - $6000 (taylors island, md)

workboat engine. 210 cummings diesel less than 1200 hours shaft wheel etc in the water now. best offer

 

If the ENGINE is in the water I'll be paying more like $60. Mayve they mean in a boat????

I like how the two forward stands aren't chained together and the one to support the bow is still waiting to be placed!

Well, at least the front is bolted down...

 

...so we know that won't fall off.

This is the most alarming boat in the thread so far.
