A couple of weeks ago me Dad gave me an old boat, a 1965 Dorsett Catalina with original engine that he had restored 6 years ago. I was sitting on the computer last week and did a search for shipping. This sight came up so I thought what the heck I'll see how much or even if I would get a bid. After only a couple of days I had quite a few bids that were right on the edge of what I could afford right now then George bid and gave me a price I couldn't pass up. He picked up the boat and with some of the issues he had with the trailer he ironed them out and other than a flat tire was out here. I love the boat considering it had been a number of years since I had seen her. This site is great, easy to use and I've already told a bunch of friends about it. Overall I had a great experience and will use it again soon.
