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.

    After almost 20 years in the marine industry I recently switched industries (recessions can do that!) and now have no use (and no space) for them.

    I have a large pile of books, collected over the past 25 years, a real mix of some classic (Naval Architecture of Planning Hulls by Lord), to some standards (PNA, all 3 volumes) and a mix of other general design/construction books.
    Find attached the list, I'd like to sell everything to one person, preferably a student. My estimate is about $400 for all the books (will gladly look at offers) except the Naval Architecture of Planning Hulls by Lord. I will sell that book seperate. If someone buys everything I will throw in a few other books, and some sets of ABS/Bureau Veritas/DNV rules I have.
    I'm in CA (north of LA) and shipping will be extra

    Dear friend,
    Your books on interests me a lot, especially those on yacht design. Actually, I'm an undergraduate student studying the naval architecture & ocean engineering in China. I searched immediately on Amazon and found some books of high assessment. But $400 is too much for me (which equals to one year's tuition fee). As a student, I can only afford a maximum of $30 for books. If you can't accept this price, I wonder if I can buy part of your books?
