Re: the joy of selling an inexpensive boat on CL

I have sold a number of items on CL. Starting a few years ago I put a requirement that people a specific word in their email, otherwise I'd just figure they where scammers. The word would be unrelated to the item. Selling a snowmobile, the word was giraffe. That cut down on the crap by at least 90%.
Oh, and I never give out my number. Just send me an email through CL.
Now, having said that, I've also been the buyer. In fact, my current boat was a CL purchase. Seller listed it for $200 (the definition of a cheap boat!). I called, verified the price, got his address and showed up with cash in hand when I said I would be there.

Re: the joy of selling an inexpensive boat on CL

Sold a pickup truck. Buyer handed me a wad of $20's at the motor vehicle department. Guess he expected I wouldn't count it. He was going to short me $200.00.
