    Nut jobs now welcome--some restrictions apply.

    Aslan's been on the market for a few months. Understanding the market is weak, I didn't expect to be overwhelmed with cash laden buyers. I was not prepared for some real nut jobs who were allowed onboard. This is what I would call a lack of qualification by the broker and what I thought I was paying to avoid. I also felt the boat was overpriced, but I let the 'expert' broker do his thing. After all, I'm not in a hurry. It's just time to move on, but not cut'n run while I still enjoy the tinkering.

    So, Aslan is for sale by owner to anyone who has not contacted my broker beginning March 1st. The original price of $225K was a nice thought, but just that. The price is $180K, buyer pays closing costs and, of course, subject to sea trial with refundable deposit. Someone who wants to live dangerously and take her as-is-where-is might have my ear. Where she is is in Charleston, SC and on the move with grandkids this summer. Nut jobs now welcome--some restrictions apply.

    They may want to get their bilge pump checked. Could fail at any minute.

    HVAC seawater line unplugged at transom. Poorly maintained boat. After being down for over a month, it caught fire. Boat kept settling in the mud and a king tide reached the fly bridge batteries. Couldnít figure out why FD was there at first. No insurance. It was on the bottom for more than two months. Low tide water a foot over cockpit combing. Salvers raised it and departed for FL 50 hours later under its own power. 6 or 8-71s. Incredible. Half that time was getting rid of all those pales of oil. Probably had 10 tons of waterlogged everything.

    It does not look tippy at all. Seems quite stable.

    Mr Clarkson, I think you should start a thread on some of the looky lÚos that you had. I'm sure we would find it very entertaining.

    I for one am just amazed Robertís boat has not sold yet given its stellar care. Market must be very soft.
