    I can hear the conversation right now, it goes something like this.

    "I have had so many calls from people wanting to buy this boat if you are really interested and want it, I need you to transfer $500/$1000 to my personal account straight away to secure it"

    OH YEAH !

    Background of the photos is suspicious. Maybe if it was in somebody's garage or out building....maybe But all white curtain backdrops? And an add that's ripe with "must sell now". That boat at that price needs no excessive verbiage to sell. Smells like fish.

    Actually several counties ARE on lock down. You may have to cross several to get to it. Driving through FL with a boat in tow 🤔. $1000 fine and or 90 days in jail.

    The guy we rent from in FL has 10 houses in FL and 5 in NJ. Almost everyone has cancelled and he's freaking out. I'm not so sure this isn't the real deal. Use caution as usual but might be worth a look.

    How does the 5.7 compare to the big boy 6ltr that i have? opinions? I can drive and go see it pretty quick...

    @liquid d most guys i know actually liked the 5.7 better for slalom. i know my jumping buddies like the 6 but the 5.6 skis amazing. But i also never skied behind the big boy.

    For 29.5k if you can travel and have some cash i think its a sweet deal. Would serve someone on here well that's forsure.

    @MDB1056 what a surprise ! these scams usually listed for a short period, they either catch 4 to 6 people or they realise they have been sussed, I have seen this sort of thing, with Cars, Rv,s you name it, sometimes they are just looking for 200 at a time but it all adds up.
    Usually also find that you cannot get to talk to them, always answer phone, but they come back to you on Whatsapp with some excuse that they cannot use the phone because they work for the military or police and are out in the field on exercise, something like that, initially it sounds very plausible, almost got caught myself once, but if you keep asking questions, generally at some point the Red Flag pops up.

    .........or it sold.

    There was no chance that boat was lasting the day at that price. I listed my Prostar at a good price last spring and it sold in less than an hour.

    My first thought was that the white sheets were to block the view of the chop shop in the background.

    The only Steve , I know down that way with a boat similar is Steve Schnitzer, but not sure if it is the exact model.
    Is he still skiing at Okeheelee, can,t imagine him selling a boat cheap.

    @wish Can you elaborate on driving thru Fla with a boat in tow?
  • WishWish Posts: 8,480 ★★★Triple Panda Award Recipient ★★★
    Just saying some counties have a stay at home orders that can be enforced. Folks can only venture out for certain things like food, meds and Doc appointments. Boat in tow seems outside that purview. Prob won’t be bothered but ...maybe.

    Another hot sell, this time it’s for real and the price is more realistic.

    According to the Florida executive order for shelter in place it allows recreational activities; look at section 3.A.ii. While I didn't do much other fact checking, to me that says you should be able to take your boat to the lake. It even outlines fishing as an example activity.

    @BrennanKMN Everyone already lives on a lake in Florida..they will know you are lying!
