Used USCG or gov. RHIB for sale? Where to find?

I know people have purchased used Zodiac Hurricanes and such directly from gov. agencies.
Are there any specific sites to locate these decommissioned vessels?

on a side note to this, i'm wondering where all the boats currently in the yard from migrants coming across will go on sale!

I always apply maNthematics to my purchases - tell her it cost a chunk less than it did, then tell her I got a chunk more than I really did for the one I sold... The new purchase seldom costs a penny...

Auction as a block or sealed bid I would have thought. They should then start appearing on eBay
I was born not knowing and have had only a little time to change that here and there.

I got mine from govt liquidations but it looks like they changed names and are different now.

GSA auctions, govdeals, purplewave, etc.

I got lucky and found my zodiac hurricane (USCG surplus that went to sheriffs dept) at a public auction in washington state.

I have found washington state has quite a few surplus ribs pop up from time to time as a result of the all the ferries and port authority boats around.
