It's either an early April Fools prank, or a sad day for the seller.
I bet it goes quick

The only type of sailing you can do is on DN boats up in Madison.

Hey now. When you're down south in Madison, they get pretty long summer, sometimes two or three weeks worth.

My company HQ is in Madison. My boss says that I'm not allowed to come visit them in the office unless its -20F or less. I could have spent all winter up there from the accounts of my colleagues who live there.

There's nothing worse than having the money to buy something you want, but the smarts to not spend it.

If I wasn't planning on spending probably $300k on putting up a new shop this summer, it'd be sitting in my driveway already

I told one of the guys in craw to buy half and I'd trade my viper for the other half. He didn't seem impressed with the idea.

I count at least three good problems to have here...

The sale will be made public when the time is right I'm sure. I got out bid and they didn't say who got it. Time to start watching.
I think Steve and Juke bought it to take line honors in the GT-300.

Bought the boat, put it together, has a life change, then puts it up for sale with never using it....

I hope the seller is in good health... and congrats to whoever got it...

Sure would be a fun ride but I would think it kind of a pain in the butt to deal with the lifting foils in an event like the GT with surf launch and landings. Am I understanding correctly that they are not going to produce any more?

Yeah, not that kind of boat. You wouldn't want to hit the beach with the kite up and drive it to dry sand. You can still launch it from a beach, but unless you like damaging expensive foils, care should be taken.

Weeds in the GT would be a fricking nightmare with this boat.

I haven't heard that. They're basically just getting going on production. I think they are behind on completing orders, but that's to be expected with a new product, and being flush with orders at the start.

I think it finally hit me yesterday that "life change" would likely have meant "divorce and b*tch took all my money"

Very sad, but hopefully the new owner may take the seller for a ride?

That's the first thing I thought.

I'm hoping like hell someone in CRAW bought it, but I doubt it.
