Re: Would you buy a boat from eBay??

I bought a 24 C&C on ebay and still have it 6 years later! I viewed it before hand and talked to the owner. I was hesitant because it was ill equipped and needed superficial finishing! He told me the low bid price was higher then it was and found myself buying a boat I thought Wouldn't sell. After putting time and money into it I had a sail able boat and was offered $5,000 for it(should have taken it). Didn't think there was conditional sale offers on eBay at. The time. Now zi use it as a secondary boat to my powerboat. As they say buyer beware!
