I look at the 2/3 of dinghies in the park that don't get used and think "I am glad you are helping me pay for my dinghy insurance"!

yes good point

but it really annoys me. That people have boats that just sit there, as a person still at school who can bairly afford a decent boat. If these people that do not use their boats sold them , then the prices would not be so stupidly high

It was a while ago (25 years to be exact) but I got a couple of half decent boats by contacting the owners.  These were the boats that had sat in the dinghy park for a couple of seasons without moving.  I contact the owners with a sob story about only having a saturday job and needing a boat.  The result was a firefly for 5 and an OK for free. 

Made a profit on both

I know a club where on your membership form you have option of paying a student at the uni that sails there to do your duty.  A pretty easy way to earn some cash for students, and means that the duties get done.  Works well for those who simply don't want to do a duty.....

It happened at Bough Beech.  I think it cost the guy 50 - I think the student did well.
