Ferries Still Up For Bid; Grab Your Checkbook

Too bad they're too big for Lake Coeur d'Alene, maybe we could have gotten a screaming deal :) Four 80-year-old ferries pulled from service on Washington's Puget Sound didn't receive a single bid when listed on EBay last week.

The minimum bid was $350,000 each. Still, a spokeswoman for the ferry system says there are some people interested in purchasing the boats.

She says potential buyers have expressed an interest in buying all four at a lower, nondisclosed price.
