Who knows....he's got great feedback.
That is certainly a very attractive price.
Hard to trust anybody these days, though.

I agree, it smells funny. Go back and re-read my post where I inserted his response to me. His spelling and grammer is as bad as puders

anybody clicked the buy it now button yet? If somebody gets a 10 hour engine/outdrive combo for this price, I want a NICE christmas present sent to me for a finders fee.......
