That balance with so many days is standard on ebay and other auction sites. If your willing to pony up the cash for the extra dockage and put down enough money to show your for real, most people will let you take a bit longer to inspect or survey the purchase.
As some one who has bought and sold boats on ebay, I put that same line on my ads. If you don't people can send you the deposit then wait weeks or months to come up with the money. I wouldn't continue storing your boat, I'm not offering financing or lay-a-way, and I want the money, either for my bank account or my new purchase.
The add seems resonable and if your interested then send him your phone number and ask to speak with him. It is buyer beware, but if you've ever bought a used car out of the classifieds then it mostly the same process.
Kick the tires and look over the title before giving over the cash.
