    Default Whilly Boat

    Hope this is what was intended. I just bought an ad last week. Here's the link https://www.woodenboat.com/boats-for...ot-whilly-boat

    If I'm doing this wrong, we can just take it down.

    Mike, that sounds more than a bargin. I am interested, because I will sell my Whilly Tern ( for the same reason), and would expect quite a bit more based on sales in the UK. Is this just the US market? Over here, such a boat in good condition would fetch 3X or more.

    Now, having read the rools, I might have infringed them But being far away, not intending to....

    Wow. Thanks for the kind words, Andrew and Skuthorp.

    Andrew, in my limited experience, it is very hard to sell a sailboat here. A few years back, I bought a plastic boat for $300, put about $1,000 into it, sailed it twice and sold it for $200.
    Ouch.

    I'm lucky that I don't need to sell her right away, so I can afford to wait for a while.

    Define “within reason”.

    Seriously, I’d snatch that up in 1.1237 seconds.

    Peace,
