Sold Their Boat Because Of LadyBen

I have sold my boat through your website. I also had it listed on two other sites. However, yours was the most effective in generating qualified, genuinely interested prospects by far. I would neverlist a classic wooden boat on any other website again. And, most importantly, when I shop for one as I now am, I would make your site the Number One resource.
