I want to see adds with the price, power, hours on power, when and by who may of rebuilt it, same with drives, what kind of trailer if any, and as much more as they know about it. The way I look at it if you wont take the time to write it down you wont do the rest of your job either and I wont bother calling.

I am no computer genius but what would it take for OSO to allow us to post video of a boat in the classsifieds section not just pictures but be able to listen to the boat being started up, run, video of the GPS, etc??
Just a thought besides posting a video in the video section and leaving the link on the classified page.

If you want to sell a boat shouldnt you work harder than the guy interested. I am not chasing a seller. Ok I feel better.
I've sold my boat & car to so many people...from "and oil rig for their wife as a gift" or "I'm in the army and buying it for my dad" what is your paypal..... whats your best price.....


Drives me nuts!!

And just for the fun of it, I replied with my price trippled and said the motor was cracked and blown and the transom was cracked.

the reply...

"sounds good, I'll take it, what is your paypal?"

Yeah, I have gotten that on Craigslist. They send an e-mail saying they would like to purchase my "wondeful item". I dont reply because they must be fishing for e-mail addys.

Default Good Sellers

Should respond on the first phone call or within an hour max. With all the systems available today sellers should return all phone calls. Why have cell phones?

That may be taking it a little too far there.....?

I use a Yahoo address to do all of my internet purchases, & for getting info about things that require you to fill out a contact form. You never know when one of these sites is going to sell your personal info, so I don't want my personal email address getting on a recurring list.

However, I ALWAYS call when I'm interested in something like a boat, car, etc, & I always call people back that leave messages, so my Yahoo account wouldn't apply to the assumption above.

Nothing is more frustrating than someone sending an email, asking the SAME questions that are answered in the ad..... If someone can't even take the time to READ the damn ad, much less pick up the phone & call, then they aren't going to get much attention in return from me.

The bottom line, is that you have to show that you are interested to some degree, or you're not going to be taken anymore seriously than someone trying to look rich by posting an offer in a thread
