I think you have put in the wrong section. 'Inflatable Kayaks' seems to be the default, but not a lot of people who are looking for boat would look through there.

it will do much better if you list in both 'Sailing>Dinghies/Boats' and 'Boats & Watercraft > Other Watercraft'

The rest of the time it has been in its valise, in its box trailer, in my garage. A garage I want a bit more space in!. I inflated it in my garden the last bit of decent weather we had and it was still the beautifull boat I always remembered. It is rated for 8 people (up to 165lb each) plus up to a 55hp outboard. It has only been used for family fishing trips and never for waterskiing. I would like to sell it but I do not intend to give it away so has anybody an idea what this might go for.
i have one of these i pulled out of a barn if you still have it is there any way u could take some picturs of the floor with a tape on it so i have an idea of what its supost to be the wood is all bout gone on mine so i cant use as a templet thx
