    Hi David:
    My sailboat has sold locally through an ad on craigslist. I did receive a number of inquiries from the ad on your site but distance was an obstacle to making a deal. I also received a lot of inquiries from scammers trying to bait me into an overpayment check scam so your site appears to be popular worldwide among scammers. Many of them use essentially the same script so they are easy to pick out.
    Thank you so very much for running the ad.
    Take care,
    Williamstown, New Jersey
