It can't hurt to send the info requested. All you would be doing is spending a couple of minutes typing. It doesn't quite sound like your everyday scam. It might be on the up and up. Play it out and see what happens.
As said, don't give any info regarding bank or personal stuff.

Simple solution is to ask for a phone#, if he really wants the boat he'll call, if not its a scam. Also the responses are automated usually, ive replied to ads like this with a simple F-U and then got a response back that says something like "sound great, give me your bank info and ill forward a check". f-in SCAMMERS!!!

Also remember that when dealing with overseas deals, wire transfer of cash into your account is the safest way to do it.
