You should review my advice and change your ad on the motion as well. include some pix of the mills and include some closer detailed shots.

Check out this ad I put up for my computer illiterate buddy. This lets the potential buyer know what he or she is getting. Nice clear photos, detailed description, asking price ect..ect...I wish OSO would allow more than 10 photos. That is why I prefer eBay. Need to say his phone has been blowing up that last two days in a bad economy.

lol thumper!

Is it possible that the dealers are trying to appear to an average boat buyer (not freaks like you guys) as though they are 'busy' ? A casual tire kicker could get the impression that the dealer is making sales because of good prices or some such reason that might encourage a potential customer to look closer at their inventory.

or not.
