From Claudine DeshaiesIf 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!

From Sherly C.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.

Now that would be cool, take it down to Brighton and scare the hell out of people on the pier, lol
From Jacob PalmerInterested? Yes. Possible? No. Don't even want to think about what the shipping cost would be for me...

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