I don't think it is a good thing when a seller (or anybody else) must choose between honesty and personal gain.
In the case of the specific seller mentioned in this thread, it will be interesting to see how it all plays out in court. The point that it will be difficult to prove the seller knew is a good one. Whatever the outcome of the court case, I hope that both buyers and sellers of boats will take all reasonable measures to ensure that boating remains a (mostly) safe and (mostly) affordable recreational activity.

Is one of you going to stand up and throw shoes at the other??
The Boat blew up because they failed to inspect for fuel leaks and Failed to Ventilate for five minutes.
Remember: One cup of gasoline is evequivilent to sixteen sticks of Dynamite...

thinning the herd
Seems this is all a breach of "the Rules"
This was my boat, briefly - I am none of those things.
Your ignorance of the facts is profound.

I dont believe they RUN E-10 that far south
The fact that these things happen at the fuel dock means that the boat had a good size leak in the fill/vent system as fueling happens outside it should not cause fumes unless there is and ongoing leak in some part of the fuel system that made fumes faster than the blower could remove them

Actually the problem is likely much more simple. Ethanol in the fuel lines ruin old rubber. This is an ongoing problem that will continue to get worse as time goes on. Everyone wants to blame the seller, but how did the seller know the nature of the problem, he only knew that it didn't really run right. While he thought he had it fixed, he was wrong. OK, so anyone here been wrong when you thought you fixed something?
But beyond that, boat owners need to know that if your boat has seen Ethanol mixed with gas, they should be replacing their fuel lines with new lines that are resistant to deterioration from the newer fuel blends.

"weez too stoopid to find our own shoes,"
Not to worry, cp, the public wearing and use of shoes will be banned effective January 1st. Too many people have been injured by them, and law-abiding citizens really have no need for them. Especially if they sweep their streets, as also required by law.
