sounds good, Jody
I had a good experience finding and buying my boat this year through a CL ad. I think the seller I bought from read Jody's post then went back to the future. He had a good ad but told me about people still trying to get it for nothing and just coming out to waste his time. In the end it was the perfect boat for me so I looked it over, went home and thought about it for a weekend (didn't ask him to hold it for me and knew other people were looking), then went back with the cash when I decided it was a great deal for me.
I still keep an eye on Craig's List for the next great deal just a few feet longer.
