    Our NA Spirit 23' sold just two days after reducing the price by 5% from the previous month. Having it moved back to the top increased traffic - and the 5% reduction wasn't "painful" to incur. Thank you for offering such a wonderful site - it far exceeds the quality of interest we received when posting on craigslist - not a single scam from Sailingtexas.com.
