Mistral LCS /XR on Ebay -

$799? Dash 1 Do they just make this Sh!t up? But at least the listing fees are keeping eBay in business.

Maybe they'll take my flip phone on trade....

If you've never seen a "football" style fin, take a look: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mistral-LCS-XR/303025430001

I'm posting this so that maybe we can save someone if they do a search on Google for Mistral LCS /XR $6-700.

That's not a football fin...its an early attempt at a weed fin, these did work a lot better at catching weeds than current weed fins.

Really? I'll trust you on this one in which case it's even worse given the weed catcher top part.

More ebay hilarity. $229 in fees: $79 in documentation and $150 in some non-refundable "paypal fee". Oh, and you can't see it because we don't actually own the board.

Read these terms and conditions on this auction of a 1986ish HOBIE ALPHA 215

As annoying as the all caps are here, they are in red and blue in the post. Yeah, I realize this is boilerplate language (cut and paste for all occasions) but it's so over the top, it stands on its own.
