Easily solved w down payment..

I don't care who you are or what u think... That's not cool and not how I was raised.
Anyway... What is done is done. It wasn't meant to be.
Ok...i get it. You have a reason to be unhappy.

If it went down like described by Chevy it's BS and I would be pissed as well. That's no way to handle a transaction.

I just purchased my 205 and had a 1000 mile drive. Negotiated over the phone (I hate doing that) but needed to get it done for the bank etc. If he had pulled this crap...well he didn't thankfully there are still some people you can take on their word.

You can alway wire some earnest money before you make the drive. Seller under no obligation until some money changes hands.

Less about obligation and more about expectations.

I've missed out on 6 boats over the passed few years like this (you know those smokin deal kinda boats). 2 turned down the offer of a deposit to hold out for the first with cash in full. It's part of the process. But I only missed out on the others because people showed up with full payment before I could get a deposit sent. We don't live in a hand-shake society. So far this was an accepted offer but is not a contract to sell.

An offer, agreement (price, terms and timing) AND consideration make boat buying legally enforcable. A paypal transfer of $250 earnest money would have saved it with an agreement that he keeps it if you backout and you get it back if the boat fails your inspection. I cant fathom driving more than 30 mi without this step. Did you have a check from the bank yet or just pre-approval and the copy of the title? How much time transpired from first call to the bad news call? Had you set terms, method of payment and a time to complete the required performance?

Or skip the questions and we can all share good search results. What kinda boat are you looking for? There's a '05 205v with a tower on eBay right now with a 'make an offer button'. Your pre approval would still work.

Pretty solid deal here:

Minus that ugly tower, but that can be fixed.
