$18K???? Either it is a typo or my boat has lost a lot of value.

Maybe Jim at BAWS knows the story as to why it is so cheap.....

It has to be a scam. I saw an ad like this when I was looking back in Dec/Jan, except it was a 07 X-2 for $24,000. They will probably say it's shipping included and you have to pay up front, blah, blah, blah.... This is the type of scams you see on Craigslist all the time.

What are the odds of that huh? The price is so low because of damage caused from rogue boat running aground while "ghost" surfing

I joined that site for the hell of it. Went to the all MC listings and MOST of the MC's were priced too low. Theres a lot of X-1's and a few X-stars too, that are too cheap. IDUNNO

I have seen many of these kinds of listings on eBay and Craigslist, but for classic cars (one of my other hobbies). One of them went like this. The car was a '69 Camaro on the Austin Craigslist. The seller was supposedly a woman who supposedly worked as a waitress on a cruise ship and claimed to have limited time to get to her email. As soon as I made contact, the listing was gone without even a trace. So, the waitress tells me then that the car is in a warehouse in North Carolina. She wanted me to go ahead and pay for it and that she just let the ol' warehouse guy know I'd be comin'! Hahaha! Wow... I would honestly pay money to find one of these pieces of ****. What would ensue would strongly resemble that scene in Reservoir Dogs with Michael Madsen dealing with the cop in the warehouse. And yeah, I'd bring my boom box and play "Stuck In the Middle With You" while I'm rearranging knee caps and ears on the f***er...

Sorry... I really hate thieves.

Someone should close that web-site down! The majority of boats offered for sale and WAY under priced.... 2009 Prostar 190 for 17K! Really?

Aside from the too good to be true price the scammers always put stupid features in their descriptions too:
"Automatic bilge system"
"In-tank fuel pump"
"Spline shaft Steering wheel"

What real boat owner writing an ad to sell their boat would put these kinds of things in there? Probably none. I'm guessing most of them are written by somebody with English as a second language and no knowledge of boats at all.
