Ha ha - Metal boom. You mean aluminum?

When you think an ebay seller got it all wrong.

Severne Metal Windsurf Boom 140-190 RDM

Metal? You mean aluminum, right? Oh, yeah. It's a Metal boom. Blush

(Not a bad deal - free shipping on a boom. Requires RDM mast, though.) See below

I suspect the seller doesn't realize he has made it free shipping. It isn't that hard to screw up shipping on Ebay. I goofed many times while doing other kinds of edits. Managed to catch them before it became a problem. Shipping booms can be pretty expensive.

I did notice this in the description. I think the Free shipping part is a rookie mistake. He only has 5 likes, only one as a seller. He has free local pickup from Arizona, though so it's a great deal if you don't mind a bit of a drive.

"No issues. Buyer assumes postage fees."
