Re: Can't seem to buy a boat

the Holder 20 will be more fun...

The approach should be: I have cash in hand, and want to buy a boat... YOURS made my list, if you don't call me back I'll assume you do not want to sell... now I just need some facts to motivate me to come pick it up.

With boats that size, you are dealing mostly with craigslist, and free listings. Keep in mind if it's one of these free services.. the seller is likely getting hundreds of bogus calls, and stupid PAYPAL deal offers and junk. So you have to do your best to set yourself apart from the scammers... Showing up in person with cash in hand usually does that.
