    It could be true, my emails are going through. The motor and trailer aren't really worth but maybe $2k so it's priced about right. Good deal for whoever gets it

    Got an email from the guy claiming he has an offer of $12,500 for the boat. Seems legit to me. He must of realized he priced it too low..

    Got the same email, I'm really not sure the logic in someone offering 25% more than a fair asking price for a 16 year old boat but I guess its all in how bad you want it! (me not that bad)

    The seller has also been in communication with a friend of mine regarding the skiff and the seller said that he is taking the highest offer that is currently at 12.5K. It looks like he wants to bid the skiff up. I wish sellers would just put forward a reasonable asking price. There are a lot of qualified buyers with cash in hand that will walk away from a bidding situation like this. I am one of them.

    Good luck to anyone looking.

    I responded 2 hours after it was posted with no response then had email back saying spam in my junk mail??
    I figured it was bogus but it's worth a shot
    If he's taking offers wouldn't ya think he'd email back?

    You're exactly right. I would have paid $12.5 if would have asked $12.5. Although I thought $10k was more reasonable considering it's on a terrible trailer, but it's a desirable boat so that's worth something .

    Personally I hope he gets $15-16k for the boat. When you keep forcing air into a bubble it's eventually going to pop. There are a few of these boats running around Louisiana, one sold recently for $11k. The ones that don't get sold between friends usually sit on the market for a long time.

    Highest and best offers happen all the time for much more money in the real estate business when a select property becomes available. You guys are just mad you couldn't steal it for $10k.

    Sellers don't need to be rocket scientist to figure out their price is too low when they get a flood of emails.

    That's bizarre. At least with an auction you have peace of mind knowing that you're actually bidding against someone else. With this, there is no guarantee you're not getting trolled.

    So the price is a starting point? Sounds like a scam to me. Buyer beware.

    Idk, but seems to me a new 16 whip classic is going for 40+. If you could get this for 15, refurb at glasser for 5K new power at 9K, new ramlin 4k. Sell the old trailer and Merc for 4K. Looks like a brand new Whip classic for 29K. Of course I'm no mathematician but if someone was in the market, it makes sense!!

    Am I wrong???

    Sent me an email at 15k too. Said he doesnt want to waste my time if that was to much. Like he knows what I can afford or something. I think he's in shock from the offers he's getting. Anyways I've asked him to call me 3 times now. Still no call.

    Well if someone on here ends up buying it and would rather have a side console waterman. I'm willing to trade skiff for skiff. Looking to down size to a simpler skiff.
