Thanks for the positive info Nate.Sig229,
Relax, search and read. Learn your way around the site 100 posts will ad up sooner than you think.
Tell a little about your collection (with photos), a little history,perhaps how you found them. Just don't try to sell them in the forum.
Sig, we understand your frustration. The mods don't think they have it figured out. What is happening is that there is a wave of newbs signing up on SS to sell stuff and the mods are trying to figure out how to slow the bombardment..... sometimes causing collateral damage with seasoned vets like yourself....... hope you can understand why I get frustrated when the "higher ups" think the have the situation all figured out.

Stay with it and you will be at 100 posts in a week. We appreciate and welcome your knowledge and tenacity.
A suggestion on what they could do is charge to post a classified if you don't have 100 posts that will help the cause and scurry off the undesirables. That could be a win win for everybody.
Derrickl112 Thank you for taking the time and explaining the rules in more detail. I don't plan on Starting a DRMO on SS.The already to that.

Thank you for answering my question I am jumping up and down rite now. I will give it a one over and make it look clean. I will also contact Doghead to find out how to test it buoyancy without paying a visit to Davie JonesSig229, it's a legitimate question, IMO. I think Doghead has a goat and he could tell you more. Prices, according to my research is $6k-12K. You would be crazy NOT to clean and paint where the minimum investment would get maximum return. If yours runs fine and only needs paint, you could fetch close to the $10K area provided all metal is intact. S o much depends on condition. Difficult to say. Paint it, for sure. It would be the best money you ever spent. They are in big demand as small quantites are available. They seem to sell without problems. Does it swim? That's huge! I've seen fully restored items asking price $12K to $15K. No telling what the final price is. Good luck.
