Angry Dumb sellers

Why is it people put their boats up for sale, with either NO Pictures available, or they say OH I 'll send them to you and never do? I been waiting on this guy for 2 weeks now. He keeps telling me he is sending me pics and never does

Maybe he doesn't really want to sell it?

Move on. They probably treated the boat the same way - "Oh, I'll do that later..."

I agree, get some pictures. Another thing I hate is the price game. Call for price, no price, best offer, etc.

maybe they dont think you are serious...

I hear ya on this, If I inquire at this point in my life...I am interested somehow to purchase. I dont always act ecxcited which may be a turn off....But I remember when I was selling my Scarab, I had a file of pics to email, a description in a word Doc, so it took a whole click of the reply button and attachment of pics/doc... I made it easy for myself to get the info to whomever inquired...didnt care who, because it was no effort.

No price gets me the most...to me that means they are awful proud of their boats and there is no good deal to be had here! They want to bury you like they are buried

I hate the ads that have no price but then say "serious inquiries only" !

How are you going to be serious if you don't know what they are asking?
