If I found something like that I would probably keep it in the yard to annoy the neighbors, but you might want to try eBay. People look for EVERYTHING on there!

I wouldn't sell it if i were you. I'd try to sail in in a local pond and scare people. But that's just me. So whatever. Do what the smart people above me are saying and go to eBay.

Invest and make it remote controled.

Now that would be cool, take it down to Brighton and scare the hell out of people on the pier, lol

Interested? Yes. Possible? No. Don't even want to think about what the shipping cost would be for me...

Oh that's a GREAAAT idea!!! Huh, y'all just come up w/the best ideas!! Yeah, I second the remote control motion or just paddle around in it like someone else suggested, funny either way!! ORRRR better yet, wait til Halloween & then dress it up real scary like & float around in it at night, like make it glow in the dark or something, THAT wud be kewl.

Darren,
Maybe you have a local newspaper that can run a small story about your eBay listing to generate interest?
If more people hear about it, maybe someone will want to put it near their business.

Local paper, p'ah. I just emailed the Daily Star (I miss that paper so much :( ...)

I want a cut of the proceedes now.

Good luck and I hope they contact you!!!
