The boat is a one boat owner. It has never sunk and was used personally. It is in good shape and needs to go. That is the reason for the reduction.

It's hard to tell from the pictures - is there any bow seating? Cushions for the rear seats or bow?

Here is the front. There are no cushions up front. A cooler was used in front of the console for seating.

You obviously have some sort of an ax to grind against the owner of the boat because you seem to be determined to undermine his sale. Opens account on THT simply to dump publicly on a boat for which his offer was declined??? Classy guy

He low balled an offer which I rejected and then he proceeded to trash everything about the boat. First post is an absolute flame after I took 2 hours out of my Sunday to take him and his old man for a sea trial without a deposit.

I've never sold a boat before but I will be in the buyers market next year. Is it common practice to give a deposit to take a sea trial? I have sold cars, trucks and motorcycles and never took a deposit to show my vehicle.

I would say a good deal of people would require a deposit. If you seem like a genuine person I will take people for a ride as a speed zone on the ICW isn't far.

Depends. I have sold a few boats in the last ten or so years and it isn't unreasonable to require a deposit and an agreed upon price before a seatrial. I know going forward this is going to be the way I operate. I have given too many boat rides and learned my lesson.

This will be my new operating procedure, "lite_rider" ruined the free boat ride for anyone else. I have documented email proof he "really liked the boat and the only thing wrong with it was the steering" which I will admit needs to be adjusted, but it's brand new and that could be expected.

Are we talking about a non refundable deposit? I can't imagine driving hours to go look at a boat and having to make an offer before I even ride in the boat. And if it is a refundable deposit then what's the point. All he has to say is I don't like the boat. If you don't want to waste your time showing the boat and have to get deposits why not just sell it to a dealer and let them deal with the problems. I just want to know if I should even look at a private seller from THT. There is no way I'm giving somebody money before I take the thing for a ride.

What about a $200 dep to weed out time wasters and if they don't like it or you don't close the deal, deduct $50 for gas and sea trial.

Buying a boat isn't too much different than buying a car. Would you pay to drive a car you were considering buying? I never have. I would never buy a running boat I could not put in the water and run.

BigWed,

Not to come off as too much of a Jackwagon, but I've been wondering why you didn't go with counter rotating motors.

Beautiful rig, by the way.
