anybody know whats the deal with this???

Ok, I spoted this over a week ago and neally fell out of my seat,
www.ebay.co.uk/itm/110881020343?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p398 4.m1423.l2649
You hear about these things but never think you're going to be the one in the right place at the right time!
Well i've messaged him several times and nothing!
After i'd calmed down and thought about it the first thought was scam !!! and i've given him email address/phone number......
But after a week nothing, no emails about improving my sex life or villa's in spain. no requests to send money to an uncle in Nigeria!
I bet im not the only one on here who's been all over this boat

But isn't the point of a scam to actually scam someone?

Hes never sold anything on ebay, with a quick scan through his history he has never bought anything in connection with a boat.

Buyer beware.

Letís face it youíre not going to hand over any money until proof of ownership has been proven, and the thing is hitched to the back of your car, no matter how cheap it is...

Bit fishy with just 1 picture as well surely you would list several photos if you were seriously trying to sell it.

ha ha my mate has just rung me about this boat to see what i thought! - i work on the idea that if its someones pride and joy they will go into great detail about the boat in the listing. one and a half lines doesnt really cut it.
