    Free KC lights

    Swapped these out. They work. Don’t seem bright compared to LED. But if someone has an 80’s Jeep they’d look perfect. Free to a good home. Or any of you guys.

    6 man life raft

    Boat I bought came with an 6 man raft in a plastic case. It’s expired and the case is cracked in the corner. Zodiac Costal model. No cradle. Was held on boat with a blue ratchet strap. How about 300$ or reasonable offer if the masses say that’s 300 is not reasonable. (Now $250)
