Did You Know? You Can Find All Sorts of Things in the ‘Classy Classifieds’

Do you remember those lazy weekend hours spent browsing the Trading Post for boats and a host of other items you didn’t know you needed until your saw them advertised? Browsing Latitude 38 Classy Classifieds online and in the magazine still provides the serendipitous opportunity to discover potential life-changing opportunities. The Classys is more than just a great place to advertise your boat for sale, or to buy a boat. It’s a versatile platform upon which you can also advertise jobs, list or find boat partnership opportunities, sell boat gear and trailers … you can even post an ad for a sailing partner to join you on the water! And currently we’re running one such ad — a woman who has motored and sailed on the Bay and Delta, chartered in BVI and Greece, and is missing boating life is looking for someone with whom she can “share the passion for boating.”

In the gear and trailer sections, an advertiser wants to return boat fittings that belong to a Lake Union Dreamboat that was “bought at auction from Oyster Point Marina after she sank.” And another advertiser is selling an EZ Loader Trailer that carries a 19- to 22-ft boat with a maximum weight of 2,000 lbs. The photo shows the trailer holding what looks like an oceangoing rowboat. Getting outfitted for ocean crossings in rowboats and kayaks seems to be a thing these days, so maybe you or someone you know needs a trailer like this one?

Here’s another ad we didn’t expect to see: a cottage for rent, in Maine. If you’re looking to spend time over East, what a great place to be located! “… [B]reathtaking sunsets … perfect for kayaking adventures, watching wildlife, and relaxing by the sea as the afternoon light floods the windows.”

And how about some group meetups? The Barbary Coast Boating Club is inviting everyone to “discover our fun and friendly group of sailors. BCBC is the premier LGBTQ boating club in S.F. Bay and Delta since 1982” and is a proud member of PICYA, with monthly meetings and social raft-ups/cruise-ins in the S.F. Bay and CA Delta.

But there’s so much more to see in the Classy Classifieds. You can check out all the pages and categories both online and in the monthly print magazine. Along with boats and gear for sale and wanted, there are job advertisements, upcoming nautical flea markets, berths and slips for sale or rent … We could go on all day, but we have more work to do. So go take a look yourself — you might just find that thing you didn’t know you needed.
