The sailing boat was from my mate who has emigrated to Australia. The Plasma TV had a speaker that crackled - the bloke said I could have it if i wanted it. As I have a Denon amp with full surround sound speakers I didn't think it would be too much of a problem!!!

The picture quality is pretty good - but I still prefer my Sony Wega 100hz 32" CRT - it's just the 32" looks so small now..........

I got my first boat ever the other week... An 1989 Avon (dunno what model yet) with a 25hp 2-stroke Yammy motor that looks like you could eat off it. I ran it up and down the coast of Newport Beach a couple hours this past weekend, it purred like a kitten (loves to run flat out, apparently) and didn't sink so we're in business.

Boat is about 3.5-4M, has a front steering console with side-mounted remote controls for the outboard, came with a bunch of accessories. Should be a fun project.

Net cost: $338 (after CA registration and title)
