    We had an inquiry about our sailboat 2 days before the ad was to expire. It was several weekends before the potential buyer could come down to look at it; then several more before he could get back with payment & to pick up sails, motor, tiller, etc.
    As of today, I am happy to report that we sold the Merit 22 (Oasis), because of your ad service, & we can't thank you enough!
