Default Best place to advertise a 27' Activator

I have a 2001 Activator, twin power, great shape, on an aluminum trailer. Here's the link: http://www.offshoreonlyclassifieds.c...o17675-en.html
Any ideas, besides this site, where I can advertise the boat?

Thanks.

you could try newsday or boats4sale.com, those are LI locals.

Otherwise OSO is the best place for HP.

just my $0.02, but a regualar bench and a set of white sparco's(or similar) would really update the boat.

I'm trying to sell my boat as well. I have had the most "bites" from Craigslist, but most of tham have been idiots asking top speed or offering worthless trades. Oh yeah, the e mail addresses are great too(i slightly modified them): [email][email protected], [email][email protected], etc.

The problem with OSO ads is:

-The search doesn't work
-The sorting doesn't work properly
-In general if you are looking for a range of boats it's a total PITA to use.

It's really discouraging considering the quality of the boats listed.


I'd try eBay too, with a starting bid that is your minimum acceptable price and/or a reserve with buy it now.

I agree with you, it is tough to search it the way it is now. However, it's not the OSO classifieds that has the problem, it's the people who enter in the ads. I'm sorry to say, but some people just don't know how to enter data into forms in a meaningful way. For instance: misspellings, typos, unrecognizable characters, misplaced commas and apostrophes, spaces, or empty fields really screw up the way databases process information.

Searching for a price range, or year range is the worst. You see it all. Example:
$100000
100.000
100,000.00
100 000.0

or

Year:
1999
1,999
99
'99
99'

There's just no way to process and sort that.

I don't know when the last time you used it was but all of those things work perfect for me.

When people input info and in red letters next to price input field it says NO DECIMALS OR COMMAS and they put 75,000.00 we can not help that.

Furthermore, you can click on the column headers to re-arrange the price, length, year, etc by ascending, descending, etc.

If you give me an example of what you want to search for I can show you how to use it properly.
