Tattoo 26 For Sale at Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia

Post by Bilgemaster »

You just don't see a helluva lotta Tattoos pop up for sale on craigslist, and so just stumbling upon this ad for one at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia asking $20,000, I thought I should pop a link to it here in our "Tattoo" section: I hope you'll forgive me for disturbing any long-cherished cobwebs here. See: ... 36273.html

The ad's got pictures of different boats of various hull colors....maybe from company promo shots? But if you're interested in a Tattoo, I'm sure you can work out which one is actually being sold with the seller. I suspect it could be the dark blue hulled one with the Virginia registration numbers seen up in a dock lift and also from a distance in the water at the same dock, but caveat emptor!

Just for posterity's sake, here's the text of the ad:
