Default Well My Baby's Gone !!

Well i got an email last week from a potential buyer from Finland. Laughed it off as i do the rest i get from outta the country. Then Wednesday i get a call that there in NY visiting family. So again i brush it off. Yesterday i get a call that there in my home town and would like to see the boat. Now mind you its shrink wrapped, winterized etc...I say sure, i meet them at the boat, he likes what he sees and wants to get in and take a look, so i say ok if i cut the shrink wrap and you dont decide to purchase it YOUR payinf to have re-wrapped...he agree's. Out comes the knife slice i nice little entrance panel comes out 10 minutes later mumbles some stuff to his interpretor. Interpretor looks at me and says...save him $500.00 and we have a deal. Gives me a deposit, we meet at bank this AM he has hi funds wire transferred into my acct and i'm taking her to the port MONDAY AM....SOLD FOR $49500....now its a matter of whats next

If he has any Finish friends that might be interested in a 25' Active Thunder let me know.
Im going to have to pay more attention to the oversea's emails, I usually dont even open them.

I had the exact same boat and had major seller's remorse after selling it in 2002. You got all the money for it though!!
