Bought Boat Sight Unseen!
 
1 Attachment(s)
Wanted to share my experience; bought a boat two months ago while I was still stationed in Italy. I had some reservations about paying so much money for a boat I had not seen or driven but I had a good feeling about it. When I found out the seller is a Marine with over 20 years of service to our country I did not think twice about making the commitment

Today I received the boat personally delivered from California to Vegas by the seller and it is better than advertised.

It is a wonderful feeling to know that there are still people that choose to not benefit from defrauding others.

Thank you!

Congrats. But as we see with Bryce's post this is not the norm. You are probably the exception. I would completely recommend against buying a boat sight unseen. Even from a Marine. I am a retired career military guy and saw plenty of shady people from every service in my time in. Glad it worked for you and it looks like a great rig. Hope you enjoy it.

Congrats on the good experience. Back in '10 we bought an '06 24' Supra sight unseen. We came out pretty good. It was basically a new boat with 37 hrs. It needed new plugs and developed a V-Drive leak after a year and a half. Other than that it's been a great boat. Here's to a great summer with your new boat!

Now I just need my truck to get here so I can tow it...Still awaiting the shipping company to get it from Italy. Hopefully it will be here this week!! I cannot wait to get back to wakeboarding.
