Thread: Beavboats, what a jerk

  1. #1

    Angry Beavboats, what a jerk

    anyone ever heard of i saw a boat on his site that i was intersted in.sent him an email asking several questions.where is the boat located?fresh water or salty boat?engine hours?

    first email i get back is puter genarated without answering questions.

    i email again. thanks for the email but can you answer my questions?

    his responce: "salt"

    hmmm , okkkkkkk. still didnt answer my other quetions.

    i send another email "repeating my original questions" and also ask if i can get the owners email addy so i can talk to him.

    his response: "no"

    god help the guy that contracted with to sell his boat.

    im sure brokers get alot of emails from people wanting information that are just tire kickers but isnt that just part of doing business? this guy acts like im bothering him and he's in the business of f@#%ing selling boats.what a jerk.

    Sounds like the guy is really interested in selling a boat?? He must have more business than he knows what to do with!!

    That is not an uncommon response from marina's listing on the internet. I've had several similiar experiances (but there are a "few" good ones).

    If they do not want to make adequate and informative responses to questions, either drop the e-mail address and eliminate the website, or step up and spend a little time providing the proper response. This doesn't mean that they have to respond immediately, but they need to respond within a week with accurate information. People are willing to travel for the right boat, but you can not travel to see everyone.

    The internet and e-mail is a quick and fast way to narrow down a search on boats, but non-responsive marinas/brokers/private sellers can really put a sour note on looking for a boat.

    Keep this in mind, and people might sell their boats quicker. For the most part, the buyer is doing the seller a favor, not the otherway around.

    I just went to his website. Here is what I sent to him:

    your infantile correspondence with a member of "offshore only web forum" ( has been posted. Here is the link:

    You should truly reconsider your attempt to list/sell boats on the Internet if you cannot prepare an informative reply to inquiries.

    I called this guy a few months ago about a 27 Fountain he had listed. At first I emailed him wanting more information. He replied that he could only get me more information if I made an offer and I should call him. So I called him and asked him about the boat. He did not know sh*t about the boat and said he would not even call the owner unless I wrote him a check! Would anyone in their right mind make an offer and write a check for a boat looking at only a picture. This guy did not even know what engine was in the boat.

    Here is a copy of my reply email to him on 3/14/02.

    Sorry Gary,

    Thats not the way I do business. I will not make an offer on the boat without more information. I have requested more information from you on the phone and by email. You are either unable or unwilling to provide any service to me with out a deposit and I will not do business with you.

    There are fifty 27 Fevers on Boat Trader right now and we have narrowed it down to two now that the one your representing is no longer an option. We have cash in hand and will make offers tomorrow.

    Thanks anyway,


    This guy is a jerk, stay away. The boats he has for sale are probably not his to list anyway.
