Default Quick warning on the Avanti 33 on E-bay

Just want to warn who ever bought my old Avanti 33 on E-bay)(the one that flipped on the highway)
The boat was on E-bay and just want to inform the buyer that IT HAD STRUCTURAL issues. E-bay notes did not disclose the structural problems. (it's also on Craigs list)
It's a good boat, (was) .. just a heads up to some one.

You Did Not Disclose That To The Buyer Before He Bought The Boat?

I was not the one selling it.
Insurance co. sold it, or salvaged it, then I saw it on E-bay.
I just want to warn the potential buyer or who already bought it.
It's not on E-bay anymore.

Yup you did. I had some info. on it back in November. I will look up the thread link and post it later this PM.
In short.. I was heading to the KW Poker Run on I-75. Big bang.. rear tire on trailer blew... (it was a new tire mind you) Boat,, truck flipped... boat off the traile, up side down... I-75 closed for a while. Truck fixed.. boat totaled by Ins. Co.
My son and I areok.. no injuries, just some sore backs.
DO NOT USE CARLISE TRAILER TIRES. It seems they have a history of problems.
