Ive seen and read quite a few ads this guy has ran. He seems to word them far to his advantage. I remember a couple of years ago , he had a Lamborghini, think it was a Gallardo , went on and on about getting the deal of a lifetime , and just register and have your dream car , and somewhere in the auction, in small print it had where the car had a Certificate of destruction ,and could not be legally registered or driven on any public streets . Love how he is a steam blower and makes all the false statements in his auction but he has his own set of rules at the bottom how he will prosecute non paying bidders...with exhorbinant charges and penalties

Isn't this the same guy that was trying to sell the 36' Spectre that was involved in an unfortunately fatal crash and was denying the boat was ever damaged? Uhh Rohhhh.

Notice how the belts are missing, but the hoses are in fine shape.

I will post the reply to my question to him...if I get one.

Minor fiberglass damage...the motors look seriously cooked...do you furnish a large jar of KY JELLY with this boat or is the transaction going to be dry?

The best part has to be where he says fix it up or drive it like it is. Like you could hop in and go if you wanted to.

The blower belts are missing since they flew off because they were under tension. The hoses would take longer to burn since they were getting heat transfer cooling by the water inside of them.
