G-how on earth were you able to remember his posting of the scarab?
Boat Trader shouldn't make him pull the ad; just edit it. But they need to be responsible and make sure their advertisers are reptuable and truthful. Especially after they have been informed of a less than honerable advertiser. Take a look at E-bay if you want a idea of what a responsible, respectable site is. They won't think twice of closing a auction until the product can be validated.
I just want to say that it's perfectly acceptable for him to purchase my boat and to turn it around for a profit. I marketed it that way. But, I was also expecting the buyer to also make a profesional repair. If he had made a professional repair then I would of supported him in every way. But I take exception to a slap togther cosmetic patch job. I could have done that myself and recouped my loss. But I put myself above sloven work and I would never put another persons life at risk by doing such a crappy job.
