Definitely a scam. I emailed the guy and here was my response... Could this be any more pathetic.
My name is Donald and I'm glad to hear that you are interested about my boat.This boat is in perfect condition without any damaged or other problem. At this time I am out of the country traveling to Austria because my wife is from here and she wanted to be closer to her parents as they are old and very ill,and also we are expecting a baby in a few weeks.I need to sell the boat to raise some cash.
As I am not available to meet you in person I will pay for the shipping costs.
So...I hope to obtain for my boat .. $ 20000
You will receive all the papers and documents(clear title,bills of sale,car's manual) to prove the ownership of the boat.The clear title and the bill of sale will both be signed and they will be shipped together with the boat,so you can become the owner on the spot.
You have nothing to worry about this deal because it will be done in a secure way.
P.S. I need your correct full name and shipping address in order to contact Escrow and start our deal in case you want to buy my boat.
