Mark was the only broker that made me realize that all brokers aren't complete dickheads.

Thank you guys for the nice words! I pride myself in not being, Tom's words "a dickhead"! I'm going to take the suggestion and put together a post on how to be good sellers and good buyers.

Mark - I have always appreciated your posts on TF. Also, I believe and appreciate that you are a good boat broker!

Only about five or six... So not really THAT powerful in the grand scheme of things, but still. :-)

While on the subject of rants, does anyone know if the Viking Binkley bought is the same one for which his certified check went missing?

Just saw this beauty on Craigslist and this post came to mind. Galley picture from a 37' Fairliner for sale in Seattle.

I totally agree with the OP. A boat for sale is going to gather dust, etc. Even some algae growth in certain climes........however, there is NO REASON the boat should be cluttered with people's JUNK/Personal items/etc etc in a pic that's supposed to draw the buyer to the boat. It's not only disgusting, it's stupid for a selling broker to even post those pics. Just my 2 cents
