Re: Disposal

Had a similar issue with an old composite Phantom hull. I stripped all the fittings of it and put it on eBay for £0.99 starting price. It went for £10.50.

Re: Graham Cockle auctions

I spoke to them the day after the auction, that’s when I found out there was a £650 reserve on the Finn

Re: Graham Cockle auctions

Well, spoke to the auctioneer today - none of the boats went as they had reserves set. They are looking for significantly more for the Finn than my top bid.

Re: Graham Cockle auctions

Have to wait and see if there really is a reserve that’s not been met, seems to be some confusion with this auction as nothing met reserve, despite one of the boats going for double what it was advertised for on a boats for sale website. Hoping it’s a glitch in the auction website. It’s been a few y...

Many suppliers said they had them, but this proved to be wrong as they were waiting for stock. I’ve...
