Default fountain on ebay

This is the one that has been in Hot boat mag forever. dude always wanted some rediculous price, but now has it listed with no reserve. seems like a nice boat.

i agree fred you have one nice fountain there!!! if i only had the extra coinage.

that boat was in hotboat for a couple years in the classified for 140 or something. dude is nuts. i just cant believe he put it on ebay with no reserve. when i first saw it there were 4 bids and it was at 30k. i wonder what he started it at?

The guy can have his wife or a buddy register and bid the boat up to an acceptable number. If no one tops the fake bid, he's lost nothing.

Let's say this guy thinks his boat is worth $125,000. In the last hour he has his buddy bid it up to 124,000. If someone brings it to $125,000 great, he's sold his boat. If not, look for it back in Hot Boat.
How do you think Todd Cimino gets his bids on ebay,, same shill tactic.

But if he has a no reserve auction that reaches completion, whether or not it is a legitimate bid, he is responsible for the sellers fees ebay charges. I'm not sure how much it would be on a $100,000 boat but I would not want to risk it.

He also made a mistake by writing "this boat is worth" instead of "I owe over"
