Is that this one that looks really tidy with the s/s double a-frame and new trailer?

Cheers.

Why didn't you leave him negative feedback? I'd be really pee'd off if I'd driven that far for a pile of c**p...

HE did-but you didn't. I'm guessing you've wasted a day and a tank of fuel for that. I'd be livid!

Leave him a negative then. Anyone that bids on it after that has already been warned then...

I did ask him a question about the state of the hull and tubes through ebay just now

Bob, thought you might like to see the email dialogue I have just had with him...

me: if i understand correctly you have relisted this item. why did the previous seller not complete the transaction? how much was his closing bid?

him The buyer did not like the boat. he was the only bidder at 4500.00 which I decided is too cheap as the first time i advertised I wanted 6000.00

me: thanks for quick response. What didn't he like ? it seems like a nice tidy boat in the pictures. Ullapool is obviously a bit out-of-the-way to pop up to view and then to pop back up to collect (if won). I'm only in falkirk - but that prob. adds up to 1000 miles!

So just concerned that there is something wrong thats not obvious in the pictures - if someone else walked away...

Does that mean you will no longer consider 4500 if it doesn't sell this time round?

him:He didn't like the tubes being painted.

me: Ahh - well I can see why that would put him off. They look fairly new in the pictures but I guess that is just the paint. Perhaps you should mention this in the Ad - so that future bidders aren't disappointed...

---

Not exactly forthcoming with the information - and bloody silly to think he will get more this time round.
