RR, your boat is simply gorgeous and you will not have an issue with selling her, sorry you are, maybe another is in your future. With all the time and effort, she really shines and someone is going to get a wonderful whaler...good luck:)Henry AKA THE YIDDIL

RR,
Like I said your boat is gorgeous...If I didnt have some of my own, i'd consider adding yours. But I have mentioned it to a number of people:)The work you did really makes her stand out over others in her class:)

Thank everyone for the kind words about my boat, and yes a gun is against my head, so to speak. I'm hoping in two to three years to be able to get a 150 Montauk ...well something to dream about anyway....

Same here RR...It's hard to get rid of something so gorgeous...but you will ride a whaler again, once it's in your blood, it will be with you no matter what....

Good Luck bud:)

This is a trainwreck I don't want to watch. I come here read about whalers for sale, and this blather is driving people who want to sell whalers away.
Imagine a central clearing house for these boats. This site gets the hits to be it. A dozen different whalers from all over the country listed every day, a little slice of heaven, right? We could get a true feel for the prices and the photo links would be a great reference. Maybe even buy or sell a boat.
Don't make it 7th grade with name calling, tattle tales, sympathy plays and antagonizing. STF up and do business like adults. MartyD

Sort of makes you wonder whether you should sell anything here...

You damn right seabob4!

If anyone thinks I was shilling(?)his auction...report it to ebay and lets go from there. Your posts should be illegal..if not banned. I put in a legitimate bid and if I would have been the high bidder, I would have ponied up the cash. My sister happens to live in NJ and she would spend $8500. If the bidding stopped at that and he offers it at that price, we would buy it. Friend is just piece of snot that won't even put his mouth where his wallet is. I am done with this guy and will do my best not to slam him in the future...although it is quite easy and tempting.

Has anyone else here bid...Oh I think not! Plus...ah never mind!

MARKETPLACE has been working for years without much supervision, but lately it seems that it has become, as one observer describes, a "train wreck." As far as I can tell the principal cause of this is due to repeated participation by people who do not have any real interest in the items being offered for sale except to append their opinions about them, about the price being asked, or about the manner of the sale.

People who have demonstrated an unusual capacity for being jerks by jumping into the MARKETPLACE to de-rail advertisements are strong discouraged to stop that behavior. This sort of participation is not welcome.

Now that was a pretty happy ending for ya Ridge!
friend99 posted 02-15-2008 03:24 PM ET (US)     Profile for friend99    
Ridge....I told you it was worth at least $11,500! I'm very happy you got a good price for that beautiful boat. Hope you see your way to buy another one soon.
