Who is this? Show yourself! And you're asking too little for your boat, I've seen it sailing, and up close at the dock, it's a nice boat.

I've only posted this photo on a couple sites.

It could be a scammer, or it could be someone with the same boat and no good photos of it... my guess is more likely a scammer, since he claims that this is a photo of him on his boat, rather than a photo of a sister-ship.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Actually, I think I just solved it, that picture shows up on the first page of a google image search. It's probably just they have no good photos of it, I don't have any of mine sailing.

So, he swiped your photo to use in his ad without giving you a photo credit... a simple note asking if he could use the photo would have been nice.

"New Mainsail. Includes Job & Genoa, Battery and lifejackets. "

I think it is a pretty good deal since it comes with a job. I hear those are hard to find right now.

I don't care about that, I didn't ask permission to take the photo of his boat and post it on the internet, so he doesn't need it to use it to sell it.

I almost want to mention "imitation being the sincerest form of flattery..." but this case could be more like stealing your photo is the lesser of two intended evils.

Anyway, it is a pretty good picture of a nice-looking boat.

Let me clarify if I may.

I believe the photo is of the owners boat that is selling, but it was taken by the poster (whom the owner does not know). The owner finds, by chance, the photo while surfing the net and realizes that it is a picture of him sailing his boat so he uses it in his add.

Excuse the grammer, there is beer involved :P
