I gotta put my two cents in and side with CAM. The guy laid out the deal and asked if anyone wanted it, seems fair to me. If anyone doesn't like the deal they wouldn't jump, but there are people out there that would jump at it. I don't see how he misrepresented the circumstances and he seemed to layout the deal pretty well. A lot of delivery deals are last minute, has to happen now type of deals.

To everyone else's point, I wouldn't consider the deal because he's not offering airfare and I wouldn't have time for due diligence on the boat and skipper, but this doesn't mean he's out of line for asking. I have friends who have taken deliveries on as much notice with less info and had great sails.
