Default Whats this.... $25,000 YellowFin

Found this on craigslist. Since it was listed for $25000 I knew something was up. I found it on boattrader for $78000. Anyone know the story? I know $25000 is not correct. Hope its not stolen.

Wow, that's a steal. My first thought is "hey, I'll sell it cheap before they repo it" based on the "I lost my house and truck" statement. Sounds like a very high risk purchase.

My son did something similiar to a friend that kept fing with him.... He posted a picture of his truck on craigs list for an incredibly low price. The ad said he was selling it so the "B" soon to be ex-wife would not get it. My son then posted the guys cell number..LOL within about 2 hours the friend called him begging him to "make it quit, I give." Funny as heck...

One word explains it all - Craigslist and low price. (And I will tell you right now the owner an dor boat is out of state and unavailable for inspection and they have gotten divorced and they need a check to hold it and well...you know the rest...)

Can I assume this is referring to the 31 with etecs from red wing, mn that has palm trees in the background. BTW, his good friend owns a trucking company so he could ship it on the cheap......lol!
