Restored JFK sloop turns out to be a tough sell

After going up for auction on Monday, with a starting bid of &100,000, President John F. Kennedy’s boat is still for sale.

The owner of the 85-year-old, 22-foot International Star sloop Kennedy named Flash II had hoped it would fetch $1 million at auction.

On Monday, there were no bidders. So, for the next two weeks, Flash II is on the block by Heritage Auctions for the same opening bid of $100,000.
