I sure do love craigslist.
I've been looking for a boat for a while, and after nearly giving up on trying to find a good deal during the summer (when boats should be at their highest price, due to demand), my wife sent me a link to an ad for a boat for $800. That same day, we drove over to take a look at it. As it turns out, the boat was in relatively good shape, although it has been sitting for a number of years.
The name of the boat is "The Rim," as it states on the side of the boat. However, a long-time-ago previous owner (the boat is about 30 years old) originally named it "The Shrimp," which I think is a much more clever name. A more recent owner scrubbed off the SH and the P and had it officially renamed to "The Rim." I plan to change it back.
Anyhow, I offered $750 for it, and a deal was made. I now own my first boat. Hooray!
