The E-Bay prices seem way out of line.

The Nardi I was watching on ebay was running around $180 which seemed reasonable but I wasn't really in the mood for any frivolous purchases at the time.

Given the dollar's performance lately, that's probably not too far off.

My kids got me a zebranowood gear shifteer for the S350 for Father's Day. I think they bought it from Performance Products. It really looks good, matches the original in shape and size, and makes the whole interior look nicer than the leather one.

My exit strategy involves a Swan 57 and the oceans of the world.

You sound like my wife, she figures the kids won't be able to find us that way. Personally, I can't sail a sunfish without getting in trouble.
