Why spend hundreds of dollars on brokerage sales commissions to sell your sea sprite when you can place your ad with many pictures and as much text as you wish on our website for only the cost of a membership ($25)? Our site comes up first or second in a search for”sea sprites for sale”, well ahead of boat yard and yacht sale brokerages.
Check out our new ads listed by name of boat under Classifieds. They look pretty good!

I’m advertising my 23 on our forum classifieds and nowhere else, but even so it seems to have attracted a serial scammer with a history of trying to dupe people who are selling boats. Calls himself Mathew Cole, and his act is pretty basic– wants to buy your boat as a present for his son, but he’s out of the country and will send you a check (no haggle about your price) that covers the purchase and the transport that he’ll arrange to haul the boat. Of course you’ll pay the hauler when he shows up.
Didn’t take long for me to realize that this guy is scamming, but I wasted a few minutes sending him photos and descriptions before he began his dog and pony show. Just wanted to let everyone know so they can save themselves the inconvenience of dealing with ol’ Mathew if he makes a run at their boat.
