Default Used boat prices gone mad!

Just was reading another thread on a used boat and scanned boattrader online to see what people are asking for used boats. These both have to be major misprints:
02 29 Baja Outlaw T496's for 35K?
http://adcache.boattraderonline.com/6/1/0/85243410.htm

04 38 ZR full canopy with fresh 525's for 52K?

The 38' ZR belongs to LightningMike of LightningBay(LightningStrikes), and I'm pretty sure he told me they were converting that boat for pleasure. He is also located in St. Pete, the ad says Falls Chuch, Va.

Sounds like a Trader version of an Ebay rip-off.

That must be the boat Craig left in the driveway when he moved I'm sure the guy doesn't know how much it's worth since Craig just left it sitting there. If anyone makes a deal on it, I'll be happy to stop by and take a look at it for you in Falls Church

The Donzi one I think is a scam. I saw it on ebay a bunch of times so someone probably took the pics and used it on boattrader...or maybe its a missprint.

Yes of course this is a fraudulent ad! I still own the boat and no I would not sell if for $51,000. Might take $60K...just kidding.

The boat is for sale for $160K. But I am most likely converting it to a pleasure/poker run boat.

That's for making me aware of this scam....it has only happened 3 times with this boat already? You would think with all this free advertising I get someone would actually buy it.

Thats funny, they made 2 yellow boats and they are both for sale now. The other boat is like 40,000 asking price.

That boat couldn't have been 70K new!
