This one is so unrealistic, all I can figure is it is a scam looking for some kid with $4k and he will give him the boat when he pays the rest... Maybe with a cash discount. I'd be willing to bet if you "touch base" with him, he has some problem with meeting you at his house.

The majority of trucks in general that are used to pull, won't go over 100-110mph on their own, so the boat would have to be pretty small to get to those speeds again on GPS.

Surely it had to be a joke amongst friends or such, as a buyer who goes to look at it just might kick the sellers azz.

BTW, looks like the ad is from '08??

At least it is a WS number.

Google Maps pic isn't the same as his ad pic. Comes up as an empty church lot.
