I saw an ad on CL today for a Mad River Adventure that I found funny as well as genuinely honest.
“One 16’canoe. Two paddles.
This is a multi-person canoe. Portaging or getting in on top of my rig alone is not something I want do again. Ima try an inflatable. Maybe you’ll see that up here next. Maybe boating isn’t for me. I digress.
I bought this 2 weeks ago for $260. Used it once. Great story. This boat is best for lakes, not quick rivers. Trust me.
$240 cash. Firm. (If you want to haggle, or give me some hardship story about how you had one of these but lost it in your divorce merely because your ex is spiteful. S/He doesn’t even like canoeing!, please don’t contact me. :)”
