    Hi all,
    I am helping a friend with an estate sale. They pulled a little skiff out of a barn and want to sell it. Seems to be about 11-12 feet long. I'm looking for proper wording for an advert. How would you describe this little gem. I'm looking for words like skiff, dingy, punt etc. Thanks much!

    Got a picture showing the interior? What is it made of ie plastic or wood? Does it have provision for sail (daggerboard or centerboard case, mast step and partner)?

    Great comments! It's fiberglass, and has an electric trolling "outboard." It was in a dark barn when I looked at it, but seems like there are only provisions for a pair of oars.

    You ought to get $3-400 for it if you clean it up. Throw in the trailer for another $200 or so.

    State the length and beam, then describe it as a "fiberglass lapstrake dinghy"
