Good news, we have sold our boat. The transaction includes the original asking price. I'm happy to say that we are now friends with the new owners and couldn't be more pleased that our boat will be going to a couple that will take good care of her. FYI, I placed the ad on your web site on 12/20/04 and had the first response, of many from the new owners, on 12/27/04. We collaborated quite a bit and last week end he was able to view the boat and made his decision to purchase.
Throughout this period we have had quite a few excellent responses from your site and yes we did get some of those questionable ones you warn us about.
We thank you for your help and guidance.
