This is an incredible deal for someone...but not me! It's a 1950 Chris Craft twin engine 33' Deluxe Enclosed cruiser. (page 241 of the CC Essential Guide) The running engines and transmissions alone are worth about $5,000, the helm maybe $1,500, etc. The bidding is at $99, one bidder, and there are no additional fees and no reserve. Check it out:

Moving south? C'mon down. I have a great job waiting for you: Boats, beer, and internal combustion...every single day. It doesn't suck.

LOL Damn that's hard to pass up but that's a post retirement job and I'm not there yet. ;)

My father retired at 58. Died 2 weeks later. Tomorrow isn't always another day. Since then, I wait for nothing.

Good plan life is short. Technically I've already retired once, from the Navy after 23 year. ;)

That's a dream boat for me but I feel like my 4 cylinder HHR might not quite be able to pull it. :S

Looks like it ended at $1525. Someone got a great deal. I would love a boat like that but I know the upkeep is beyond my current means.
