Hello and sorry for the late response

The boat is in perfect condition with a clear title, there are no mechanical issues whatsoever..it also comes with a trailer. my experienced Donzi tech has fully checked out this boat and gives it a special high rating. the problem is that I recently had to move to Texas where I got a new job.. and in the meanwhile I've found a nice house here but since my loan didn't get through i need to sell the boat in order to be able to pay the down-payment. this is a FAST sale forced by financial reasons!
Boat is currently in San antonio, Tx. The price is $30,000 shipping costs included to any US location.
If you are seriously interested in buying please email me your FULL NAME, COMPLETE ADDRESS, and PHONE # so we can start the arrangements!

David

Usually the scams dont have the owners name....this one does.
Someone send him an email and see what comes back....if its a scam I say we get several bidders and jerk the guy around....see how long we can keep him on the hook....sounds like some good off season fun

this is why i like you chris.

email him back tell him you will overnight the check, the deal is so good you don't want to miss it, get the address from him, then send the OSO hit squad down to meet him when he picks up his check

We should do what tantrum suggested string this creep along. Cold weather setting in and some fun would be FUN.
