Default Remember Bartertown?

In the last of the Mad Max movies Tina Turner ran "Bartertown", where the currency is whatever someone else needs, traded for what whatever you need. (That was the one with Thunderdome: Two men in, one man out).
Maybe a barter section here on OSO might be worthwhile. We all have garages full of boating stuff, some of which someone out there may be looking for.
For example, I've got a pair of 30P, 5-blade Houston Props for Bravo drives. Send me something out of your garage and you can try 'em out on your boat.

I thought about suggesting a auction section, like an e-bay site, place to "get'er gone fast"

I also like the bartertown idea...
