Without showing alarm, get back in your truck and lock the doors. Smile as you back out the truck, being aware of neighbors\relatives that may be closing in on your position........

Craigslist isn't known for rocket scientists looking for camper shells cheap.

I like the "please let me know if you are intrested"

Send a email

I'm intrested but you have to guess who I am

or

I'm intrested but I am not willing to let you know

I thought the 7 passenger was the best part of the ad. What size would the people have to be to get 7 of them in a 12' Johnny boat with a trolley motor.

Just when I think I've seen the stupidest CL ad, someone comes along to top it!

Dave- I can assure you that a trolley motor in Ohio is for running a trolley system, not a boat...LOL

The guy thinks you can get 7 people on that tub so maybe it really is a trolley motor instead of a trolling motor, I suggest you call him to find out for sure! LOL

That's just a typical day duck hunting here. "Here, hold my beer so I can reload".

Yeah, since when does the trailer have a ball? How would you hook it to your vehicle? Unless the guy thinks you have to take the nut off and remove the ball, instead of opening the latch on the trailer hitch to remove it from the ball attached to the vehicle? You don't think that is the case........do you? LOL
