Man, that's a sweet deal!

I might sell my 205 and get the one in Vermont AND in Los Angeles!! I'll be way ahead of the game financially!

I've found some in the past where they would post their email within the text.....at least now she/he is placing it in the picture so it's harder to search and find her other bogus listings.

Hahaha, you should buy all of them! Best part is you could pick the first one up in Colorado!
Don't let them trick you into paying shipping from Vermont since it's such a good deal, the boat's been relocated to CO!

That is a totally cool idea. Find pics of some other dudes boat and post the boat for sale as though it is yours. How do they expect to pull this off? At some point the perspective buyer is going to want to see the boat.

When all the fun is over.....just go to the listing and "flag it for spam". It should disappear in an hour or so.

It's not like my phone # is on it. Anyone that thinks they can buy an X2 for $14k can just send me $1000 and I'll tell them it's a scam and save them $13k. Any takers??

I flagged it.
CL just turned completely worthless though, most of the boat ads, are scams right now.

I almost bought a bennington pontoon last week with a 90 hp honda for $4K....if only I weren't so cheap.....they even emailed me back to assure me the deal was real.

Though they wouldn't accept cash. Just an ebay payment.....Poor lady's husband was killed recently.
