1. The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    I'm looking for a pair of cheap (as cheap as possible) barges that are or can be converted to hopper barges. Will consider anything 150'+. Anyone have some around or know where I can pick some up?

    There's a yard on the Illinois River somewhere between Peru and Cuba (no, really), specifically I think it's upriver of Peoria; they've got just a tremendous rust farm going on there, Google around and I think you'll find it.
