Boat details and description – Please email the details and up to two photos. The description is limited to 100 words maximum. You may use the abbreviations shown to reduce the word count. Please describe the boat accurately and fairly. Those without email may post the details to the WCOA webmaster

Transfer of Membership - Members may transfer any remaining membership to the new owner and it will greatly assist the WCOA if permission could be sort to pass on the new owners details to the membership secretary.  [Please use this form]

Internet Scams - The WCOA website does not normally attract scammers, but a quick internet search for “boat selling scams” will confirm that you need to be wary. Ideally obtain the address and land line telephone number of the buyer; meet the buyer in person. Don’t pass on your bank account details.

The WCOA reserves the right to remove an advertised boat without prior notice.
