Thanks for loading your stuff on the new Woody Boater Classified page. It aint Ebay yet, but getting there. We have noticed a couple things that only one notices when things actually start working, and not working.
1. It’s been a little hard to know you have actually loaded anything on your end. That’s because we need to approve the ad. We check the page from time to time since we have yet to figure out a notification system. We are working on that.
2. Boats. No Expensive boats. This is something that we did not take into consideration. Several things happen when a person is selling a $40K boat. One is the buyer should have help. We can’t help, nor endorse. And to be honest, it competes with the very sponsors that support this entire endeavor. So, we will only allow listings under $7,000. The reason for that low number is those are usually not promising any fancy restorations and there is no real place to sell or give those boats to the community. Thats what “Adopt A Boat” is… I think, we just liked that idea,. A place to find a safe home for your ex dream boat.
3. Culture, this is a place to buy and sell to and from other fellow Woody Boaters. Stuff you want to stay in the family. Stuff you would sell to a pal. An insiders place to share stuff. Ebay and other places are great for reaching everyone under the .sun, but not really fare to friends. I know that I would sell stuff to another person for 1/2 the price if I knew it was going to be taken care of and that the person knew what it was. That’s the spirit that will make the classifieds a special place.
Thanks for understanding the sausage making, and thanks for trying it out.
