If you or Alan have never seen one, it must be a bit unusual? Is it genuine do you think?

I think boats are selling at this minute due to covid?
Do you know what it went for?

He was asking 1750 for it & the ad went down within a week!

For a boat that was a bit unknown, was it a good price?

I note that some Albatrosses are making upward of £15,000 now, so mine which is original and the second oldest could make good money right now?

I think it'a a pretty good market at the moment, coming out of lockdown, can't go on holiday, money to burn..... Sell while the going 's good!  If it doesn't sell, then it's not like it's a great loss? 
Worth a try?  ::)
