Mike, I feel your pain neighbor! I'd think that somebady that is really interested in buying your boat would do a contract like others have mentioned. You need to qualify the potential buyer. Most will see that your boat is in like new shape and you could start it on the lift to prove it runs. If they are still interested then the contract, proof of money to purschase (ie finances). final deal would be a seatrial down the bay. Yes it's a lot of work selling a boat.
