Free delivery anywhere?
A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...

I've bought it already. Funny how it happened as it goes as he actually asked to pay me in western union and refund the difference, meant I got it for next to nothing.

Delivery is supposed to be happening next week. I'm so excited its like Christmas has come early
