I was at the woodenboat home page and saw the new “on ebay” section. http://www.woodenboat.com/ebay/index.html. What do you think of it?:cool:

None of these are on that ebay thing... This is just what is on my watch list right now. I wonder where they find what is on the woodenboat ebay thingy... some sort of computer or something.

Well, to tell you the truth we have several folks in our office that cruise ebay and load these items onto the on ebay site. It is obvious that you folks are watching ebay for specific items (I did add all of your watched items to the on ebay page so you can bid through wooden boat when you want to bid THAD) You also provided me with a valuble catagory to search now. What are you using for search terms? What catagories are you looking in? What would you like us to add? We are focused on making this a successful tool, and your input can help us provide you with the items you are looking for.

Oh... I see.

Well, I am most successfull finding wood boat stuff when I search in ebay motors under "bronze" or "Brass"

or under regular ebay under "vintage boat" or "old boat"

I also search ebaymotors for "bronze brass" in the boat parts section. Some listers think bronze is brass, so....

I search 'herreshoff' and look for books and used sails.

Does WB benefit somehow if we bid through you?

Just a thought. If you made the Ebay thing a sticky and put it down where in the bilge, more folks would get to see it and also add to it. I have seen this done on several other forums and it seems to work quite well

There is a benefit to wooden boat if you use the on ebay feature to make your ebay purchases. What other items would you like to see on there? Any other catagories you are looking under??

Try adding the search words: Perko, Wilcox-crittenden, Buck-algonquin, edson, and Merriman.

All makers off great boat fittings.

Is there any benefit if we use your ebay portal to do searches? If so, you could add an "enter what you want to search for" box, and some of us would use that for our ebay searches.....
Just a thought.

This is great. We love to expand our searches. I really appreciate the new search terms.

Also thank you for the suggestion. I do believe that driving traffic to ebay through this portal is a good thing to do. Purchasing other items once you are searching the ebay site will not monitarily benefit wooden boat. The only benefit comes when you purchase something that is already listed in the on ebay section. I am checking this forum five days a week, and have no problem adding specific items for people if you add links to them to your posts.
