brak is on a distinguished road
I sold two boats on ebay so far. Both went reasonably well. This probably owes to the fact that they were relatively inexpensive (the second one not so much, but still) and I maintain them in top notch condition (so they were excellent value). That said, I did see lots and lots of junk for sale on ebay and I know that many of those transactions fail when buyer arrives to take a look at or possession of his new vessel and finds it to be, err, not entirely as good as the seller claimed it to be. And sometimes the boat is ok, but a shifty seller that is not entirely honest kills his own deal. And sometimes a flaky buyer. Anything can happen.
