"buy it now 3000"-yeah right...I'll have them both if they are genuine...


Typical hacked identity too-email included in ad like that suggests to me that the hacker doesnt know what the right email is.

The Avon was for sale on e-bay in the last fortnight. I think the 'Outboards and Boats' guy in Ruislip had it for sale and when I last looked it was up to around 15k. Exactly the same description & text, but different font style. I don't think the winning bidder was from Petersfield!!!

You will notice he is asking for bids from pre-approved bidders only and that if you wish to be pre-approved you have to email him separately! Nice touch.
