(B)reak (O)ut (A)nother (T)housand

When I bought the boat, I was hoping to capture those memories I had as a kid, boating with my family. And those times I did take it out on the water, jumping waves, and the spray of fresh water in my face, I felt close to my father. It was exciting, and I loved it.

However, I've come to realize I hate actual boat ownership. Which is why I'm now putting it up for sale. It's too much of a pain in the ass to maintain. If I had a significant other that was a boat enthusiast, it might not be so bad, but to be a single female with a boat...ugh. I can't even begin to describe how much it takes just to put the thing in the water by myself.

So, here it is. A 1989 Sunbird Corsica. 4-cylinder Ford inboard/outboard motor. which was completely overhauled 3 years ago. Top speed, 35 mph. It can easily pull skis, inner tube, etc. The interior could use some work in the form of re-upholstering, but the transom is solid. The trailer is very good, and I have an extra spare tire for it.
Maybe down the road, if I have an S.O. that is another boat enthusiast, I might try owning another boat. Or maybe I will just get a waverunner. Right now, I just don't want to deal with it, and I'd hate to see it sit any longer. My stepdad would like to see me go ahead and fully restore the interior, but I just don't have the heart for it anymore.

Make an offer. You can email me, or just post your email in the comment box and I will contact you.

You know the adage What is the greatest day of a boat owner's life?"

The day he sells it....

Of course you hate the boat. Your PT would never be able to pull that mama-jama.

You need a book on sales techniques!

My Supermodel wife says the same thing about me.

I'll give you $10 for it.

Don't buy an RV, they're not much better. Though I love mine and use it often enough to justify the cost, still, I feel your pain.
