How to identify serious buyers

Lets say I have a 3 to 10 thousand dollar boat on a mooring that is for sail by owner, me.

To show someone the boat is a little bit of a hassle with a dinghy ride and all.
It would sure be great to be like that guy from the show "Lie to Me" and ask "Are you seriously looking to buy a boat today" and know if they are lying or not.

I am fully aware that some percentage of people are just looking end up buying. They may not even know they are going to buy a boat that day until they see it.

I also know that some folks just like to look at boats and have no money.

Any ideas or do you just have to show it to everyone or hire a broker?
