Moth, old school style, somewhere in southern Ohio for $975.  You could own it and tell your friends that, "Yes, as a matter of fact, I am a Moth sailor."

 I-14 Skiff (2 traps) in Charlottesville, VA for $6,250.  Not a budget boat but if the pictures are to be believed it would be a good deal for what is present.  If I had a skiffie friend I would sell the 29er just picked up to singlehand and switch to this.  I should learn to be nicer to people.

That's a Morrison 12 design... Mega deal since they are still competitive! Someone go get it and more importantly, race it.

The city park lake Sunfish livery was augmented with Escape boats 20 years ago. I fairly regularly went down to rent, 8 minutes from home and boats rigged and ready to go at $8/hr.  The Escapes all disappeared after a few years, no idea why, maybe unrepairable daggerboard trunk damages? Sunfish faster in all conditions but kids preferred the Escape for the cockpit size.

They've dropped $1k off of the asking price since you posted this.  I'd love to do this but a similar year sold recently for sub $2k so it's hard to want to pay $5,250. That and I'm long a few too many boats.

Nonesense.  Not too many boats, not enough time/money/sig-other-patience/room-in-yard...

As a D-zero owner , can I say that’s worst pic ever. As it pictures the UKs largest( in viciousness if not in height )  online sailing troll .

Best thing he ever did for the D-zero class was cancel his order.  :D

Landshark!  or Sandshark? in Newton Fall, OH for $200.  Comes with mosquito pond and trailer.  Or mount a 15hp motor and side strakes and this thing would bogey.

Looks like a Butterfly. Nice enough little boat, probably not worth wading thru the weeds for though. Did they name it "shark" in the hopes of keeping away snakes?

That old road grader looks like more of a find!

Doesn't the original Topper sorta look like the Butterfly? Those mini-scows look fun but the Butterfly has a bit of weight to it. I think the Topper is 35+ lbs less.

Speaking of weight, I found a nearby Minifish in very good condition....I need to chit or get off the pot, because I want one for practice (up north since my Rocket is down south) and I like the light weight. Procrastination is my enemy.

There are MF from $50 (hull only) to $300 (dirty complete) to as high as $850 (won't sell), but two in great condition in NE just went for $500 and $600. One had spanking new sail.

I think I'd use it 6-8 times this summer....but that's worthwhile considering it will be fun to spruce up and always have some value.
