Got a call just 2 hrs. after posting my add, cash buyers, no haggling. I'd set a fair price for an excellent boat with an accurate description of the condition. I removed my add instantly so I was not troubled by callers after it was gone.

On the other hand, I just looked at 2 boats with problems not mentioned in the adds. This made me distrustful of the sellers. Rotted trailer, rotted bulkhead not mentioned, what else does the owner know of but won't tell?

I had cash and might have paid the asking price but the lack of trust stopped me.
