I actually had a buyer that sounded like that with the Duffy.

Sent me a check including extra to pay the boat hauler. I decided to check to see if the good check was really good. At a glance the bank said it was good since it was a bank check. I had them call the bank that wrote the check and walla... they never wrote a check like that. since the check originated in Canada, it would have taken over 30 days for me to find out that the funds I was givin from a check cashing would have had to be returned. The bank said I would probably have gotton investigated too.

uh, no....you need to reconfigure your translating software. We call that "thinking outside the BOX." I'm thinking this is not helping your cause.

I ship to Australia on almost a weekly basis anymore. Happy to help. All of my customers with boats for sale will be fine with this. Ih vae told them all to take Australian buyer very seriously.

I can also help you arrange the shipping. We have this down like clockwork now.

We are also building a website right now that will be based in Perth. USBOATIMPORTS. Should be done in the next couple months and ready to launch. I have a guy in Perth that will handle everything on the OZ side.

Tight lines, Bob

Just send me a PM.

www.anglersedgemarine.com to see all the boats I have.

I generally talk to my friends in OZ on skype. I do have global long distance calling as well so either way is fine.

I believe we have a 14 hour time difference so will have to talk in the evening and morning your time.

Folks don't realize that with the weak American dollar, that there are many buyers from outsides the states who are genuine. I have friends from Assie land who buy boats up here regularly.

Well I think we do. We also realize there are a lot of scams -- and when the language is awkward, it's a red flag. Not all red flags are really dangerous, but they're red flags nonetheless.
