What's the most absurd seller statement you've heard

I'm now in search of a boat having sold mine, to the first person who looked at it. I saw a Grampian 26 listed locally, did some research online and found they have been known to have wet deck issues. I call the guy and go look at the boat and it's not a bad looking boat although his "new paint job" was by him with no prep or masking. I discuss the deck issue and thanks to the type of work I do I pull out my moisture meter and unpack my digital imaging camera and start going over the cabin roof and deck and the meter jumps off the chart, when I show him this his remark is

"You show me a dry sailboat and I'll show you one in a garage"

Needless to say I'm still looking.

So what's the most memorable quote you ever got from a would be seller.
