How are Boatsandoutboards these days?

The last time I tried using B&O the advert never appeared and I still have an unusable credit from when I had a brokerage package with them, but even so i thought it might be time to give them another go?

The web page seems to be fast again, which is nice. But I cant get it to search by price (probably my fault for not using a PC).

What has been people's experience of late?

I've had reasonable success with it, although it does takes ages for the ad to appear!

I have stuck one on there, decided to go for a paid one (even though they owe me money) and I am happy to report that it got listed pretty quickly.

There has even been a sensible enquiry already.

It may have been an external dipstick fault, but I could not find the Channel Islands as a location - can anyone help me find it please?

So much for that then, the ad has disappeared.

Boats and Outboards - current performance sucks

There is now a message to say it has been removed!

Yet another tenner down the boats and outboards tubes then.

Hi,

I would be very grateful if you could drop me a line to discuss this, my email is stephen@boatsandoutboards.co.uk

I am sure we can sort something out.

Stephen

Hi Stephen,

Many thanks, I certainly will do.

I never did hear back from you about the credit, the last thing I heard was that it was too small* an amount to be worth bothering with.

* By B&O's deffiniton not my own!


For reference, the message I get when I try to view my ad is:

"Coded Ocean 720 With Twin 90HP - New Tubes And Engines!

This advert has recently been removed from our FREE and fast moving real-time database. Please choose one of the links below to find similar ads.

Please note that BoatsAndOutboards is at the cutting edge of Information Technology (IT) and hence almost every marine item sells very quickly.
Display make 592 For Sale
Display category Commercial Ribs For Sale
Display Todays Ads
Go to Search Page
Database error: Invalid SQL: INSERT DELAYED INTO boats_logfiles.deleted_ads_log SET ad_ref = 'F194635', ip = ''
MySQL Error: 1031 (Table storage engine for 'deleted_ads_log' doesn't have this option)

I note the FREE part, does this mean the crisp ten pound notes do not actually leave the customer's accounts?
