So, if I read this correctly, I donate my boat and they pick up my car? I can see the profit potential there...

I found a 25' gift in my mothers back yard full of leaves and junk. After two years of looking i took a cutoff saw and brought it to a pivate dump at the tune of over two hundred bucks. So much for free gifts

I figured it was a cut & paste error from a similar page for donated cars, but it was a funny cut & paste error....

Do a search on "freecycle". You can put it up there.
