RIBase
Maybe once the deal is done, she'll pay a bit extra so he can pay the courier cash? "courier" arrives and gets paid - says he'll be back in an hour. Money vanishes from Paypal as boat "wasn't available"?

Gumtree is plagued with these scams. Had an identical one aimed at me while selling a car a few months back.

If it feels like a scam (it does course you asked)
If it looks like a scam (it does other have said)

Total scam.

I had similar results when I posted a boat for sale in the USA. People offering to buy it sight unseen for asking price. Stick to cash on delivery in person and you'll be ok.

I like following up on these scammers and stringing them along until the very end. Probably petty...but it does amuse me.
