Try a buy it now with best offer listing. You'll get some tire kickers, but for a boat, it works better than an auction in my limited experience.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Sad to say, it's a wake board world. (Need some skull decals, throw some bags in it, couple empty beer cans.) Just kidding.

I think you're, in a familiar spot. Those with money and/or good credit buy newer...those with no money and/or no credit, can't afford any boat. (My banker did offer full financing on my 94) Financing is available, with good credit, on older boats.

My boat was a not sold, on ebay. It was located 90 miles from me. I emailed the seller, made a deal for his starting price over the phone, pending personal inspection. (Willing buy+willing seller=selling price)

The thing about ebay/auctions. If the starting price is to low, it looks like a scam or something amiss. Too high, reduces the field of potential bidders..oddly also a red flag for scammers. ( I didn't see your auction.)

I don't use Buyitnow, lots of dead-beats, bestoffer will get low ballers...then again many dead-beats. When an item is sold, but not paid, takes awhile dealing with ebay...has gotten better.

That said, this boat is in better shape, than mine. Minor fender work ($150.00 max), can of
black exhaust paint, and gaskets ($30 bucks max)

the exhaust paint is nice, shiny, and original.
a bottle of CLR and a dish rag $5 max is all that's needed there.
it leaks maybe 1 drip per 4-5 hours of actual run time which is why it has not been fixed.
