Ebay: Powerplay 185 ads-don't add up.

Check out these two ads on Ebay. Both boats have the same Hull ID listed. The second boat aparently has an 1100 HP 4.3L.
The picures in the ads are unique, and appear to be of diff, boats. The second ad seems goofy though....

Guess that is why I am so hung up on feedback. One of these guys has 2, the other 1.

It would be great if we could have feedback on the OSO classifieds.

Karma?

Hmmmm the HIINs listed are the same but the registration numbers in the pics are different. Now one of them could of miss typed the info. But they could both have the same hull numbers one original and one altered. That would be some totally chitty cosmic karma to put a stolen boat for sale on E-bay just to have the boat with the real numbers show up at the same time. I had a boat confiscated a while back that was stolen. Turns out it had been sold about a half a dozen times before it was discovered. That was a $15k bite in the rump.
