We lucked out with the weather for the BBSA Marine Yard Sale. No rain and plenty of sunshine. Sellers offered lots of great stuff and good deals. We were a little light on buyers, but we all had a good time relaxing and enjoying a few Bold Mariner brews and lunch from BarQ.
Not sure about revenue, but Andy Spittler seemed to sell the most volume. At least his pile looked much smaller by the end of the event.

A few people have asked questions about our hosting provider Wild Apricot and whether they sell our data. The answer is absolutely not.
On their website, they answer the question: "What do we do with your data?"
Short answer: we only use your data for running your Wild Apricot account. Period.
Our business model is very simple - our revenue comes from paid accounts subscription plus a (very small) chunk from ads displayed on websites of free accounts. We do not sell or share any personal information about you or your members to any outside organization/partners/advertisers.

If you have other concerns about the BBSA website, please let us know. The BBSA website limits access to member information to other members. Even within the membership, you can control what other members see.
The Rover owners and crew have informed us that they can no longer offer a free cruise to BBSA. We really do appreciate how they have supported us in the past, but they need to focus on their growing business and increasing demand.
We are all disappointed, but we will find some other event to take its place. If you have ideas, please let us know.
