Hi TX Cruiser, any idea of the weight of the St Croix? It might work for a project I have in mind, but shipping rates to Oz can be a killer.

By the way welcome to the forum.

Andy G, according to the manufacturers, the crane weights 27 lbs. and the dinghy sling weights 2 lbs.

They are both in excellent shape so if you were thinking of buying these items anyway, the shipping would likely be the same so, buying used would put you $ ahead.

It's a good bargain. The reach and capacity aren't quite enough for my own project....but meanwhile I'm spending a boat unit to make another one work for me, and it's not going to be nearly as tidy and unobtrusive as this one.

Good buy Andy, hope you get it. I get stuff delivered by USPS, seems to be economical and quick, but I think an odd shaped 30lbs will cost several hundred $.

What's going on? Baggiolini did you buy it, or Northern Spy, Healhustler you?

Anybody?

He is probably off doing what we should be doing, cruising on the boat, not trying to figure out what we can do with new hardware from the office.

Well it wasn't me. I don't even know where I am in line. I just have this pocket full of cash and nothing to show for it. I figured it probably cleared the flight to Sidney and was on a UPS truck to Pittwater by now.

I'm still here! I guess I underpriced it. The ball is in Northern Spy's court right now.

OH, well in that case, I'll bid 250 for it and Photo-Shop another 250 to whoever sends me the items in question.

Seriously though, I don't think you priced the item so low. It's a very handy, compact item with lots of practical uses and easy to mount, etc.. We're chomping at you here a little, but we've all got boats so we probably don't have any money. I'd have to use my Admiral's birthday money.

Uh, don't you mean that he accepted your offer? I got confused about who's offering and who's bidding.
