Maybe there's a number missing in the $$ amount? $14K or $24K?

Scams are usually grossly underpriced, like this one.

Probably missed the 1 at the beginning of the price.

Yea 14910...not. So common on the web it's laughable. Why use a hotmail account and not let CL forward?

Don't waste your time

My thoughts exactly! I saw it and thought maybe the motor was blown or something the then goofy hotmail email gave it away, also in the pic nothing around Denver is that green right now!

I was just searching Ebay and found this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1998-...22427d&vxp=mtr

Just go to Ebay find a pic, create an email address and start scamming.

I hope the real owner know his boat is in Denver now.

Wow, not a bad price and no bids yet. He could put a tower and updated graphics and ask $30k! That same boat was on Craig's list in my area last spring so I wonder if the eBay isn't a scam too.
