    It is a sad story. I live in Colorado. There was no market for the boat here so I took it to a friend of mine in south Texas (La Feria) and listed it with a broker. That was more than 4 years ago. The broker did nothingl. After no action for some time I listed it on your site. As you know I went all the way down to a $450 asking price. Over the last couple of years I had several inquiries but none came to fruition. My friend became more and more frustrated with having the boat in her yard and finally a couple of months ago gave it to another friend of hers without my knowledge. Two weeks ago a man from Fort Sam Houston in Texas was going to look and probably buy the boat. When I contacted my friend to tell her of the visit I found out the boat had been given away. When I advised her that the person she gave the boat to should be obligated to at least compensate me in the amout of $400 which was the agreed price for the last potential buyer -- I was told to go take a hike; the boat was gone, no money would be forthcoming, and I had taken advantage of her generosity all this time. So --- the boat is gone and I have no recourse. Thus the boat is "no longer available". Sorta sold.
    Thanks for your help,
