Obviously upset, he called the seller and demanded a refund. The seller was accomodating on the phone. They decided to meet later that day and un-do the transaction. Since he needed a ride back, my cousin (not his son, his wife's sister's kid) followed him out. My cousin is a little unstable- another story altogether. Anyway, the guy gave him the money and go the car back. But he was short a few hundred- told my uncle that was all he had and would make it up later. Before my uncle could say anything my nutty cousin pulls a pistol and hits the guy, then holds him down and tells him the money needs to show up now. Of course my uncle had no idea this woas going to happen. At any rate, they got in the car and went home. An hour or so later, the police arrived at his house, forced entry and arrested him for armed robbery. Cousin too. Cousin got 4 years, served 2.5. my uncle got off after dropping about 50 grand on lawyers.

Update II: Its my understanding the boat at Advanced is a Vector, and not my vessel. Just a general Description for all-It's a 1989 Wellcraft 23 Nova XL, 454-Bravo. No trailer offered with the sale, but the one that was underneath it when I purchased it was built for about a 18 foot boat (way too small). Boat was either white/teal, or white/green. Either way the boat WAS going to receive new paint and updated interior, so the color option didn't mean much to me. Nick

It was White/Teal and had the teak wood surround on the windshield. Interior is primarily gray with teal and black accents, and is shot.
