Hillster 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

onespd 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.

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.

LOL, Craigslist ad, they used my picture :)

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.
