He was just seeing how desperate you were. I know a guy that purchased a Fountain for less then half what the guy was asking. Ya never know how bad some one may want to sell something. Ussually however, after a few min of talking to a seller you can figure it out. I am sure that he knows that this is a buyers market and he is going around offering rediculous low balls hopeing to steel a boat from some one.

This sort of thing happens often when you are keen to sell and advertise that all serious offers will be considered. You would think that saying "serious offers" would exclude ones that are less than 30% of the asking price but some jackasses still have the nerve to come up with stuff like this. The funny thing is, one time I actually accepted an offer like this just to see what will come out of it and nothing did, never heard from the guy again!

And that really says it all, people making such offers are not real buyers and are usually not really interested in doing business at all. Thus, tell him that he is free to waste his own time but that he should stop wasting yours!!!

Funny, It wasn't an hour later that someone called and we made a deal. I am so glad that I didn't take his offer. LOL

I asked him if he was serious, and his reply was "dead serious!"

It's like that old saying: If you ask a million girls to do it with you, one of them is bound to say yes. This guy has 999,999 more boat owners left to lowball...
