It is back. he relisted the boat tonight.
I had sent him 4 emails trying to give a deposit and have the boat surveyed ASAP. In the emails, I offered to fly there in 2 days with a cashier's check I also left 2 messages on the phone stating the same information.
I would never leave a real deposit in a situation like this, but I am trying to get the guy to respond and it does not happen.
