While doing my Craigslist and ebay stalking I came across this ad for a cool 1982 Mako. These are tanks and put up with lotta crap on the water for sure. But maybe the seller is a little more sensitive to the crap on land. My favorite line in the add is. “THERE IS NO TIME FOR THE BULLSH%T!!! If you don’t know nothing about boats do not contact me for I will not contact you back with dumb ass questions if you want a johnboat then by Jon boat if you don’t have a truck to tow a boat a this size do not contact me overall this boat is 27 feet long without the motor is hanging on the back..if you never towed a boat do not contact me if you never Owned a boat do not contact. AND DO NOT ASK ME WHATS THE PRICE !!!”
Wow! Okay, we have all been there on Craigslist. One idiot after another bothering you with dumb ass questions. Wanting rides, throwing out stupid deal offers. So I get it. But the seller is partially to blame. No price, and playing a cat and mouse game, inviting bottom feeders. Also to be honest here, as a person that knows the price, it can vary by the thousands on a boat like this.
It’s been sitting outside in a storage lot. I know the lot, and its full of peoples RV’s and stuff. Plastic boats like this can suffer from rot just like woody boats. Soft spots can cost a small fortune to repair. But the seller says its Okay. What about the engine? Or engines. That’s a nice $15K – $20K each. There are so many variables that playing the guess the price game is a crap fest, and even though I am interested in the boat, there is no way in hell, I am going to say one thing. The seller is coming off as a crazy street person yelling at dumb people. By the way. A “dumb people” is probably going to buy that boat. Like me! Dont get me wrong here, I like this guy and totally get it. Maybe we could have a good laugh on the phone, clearly we have a bunch in common. I hate jonboats even more than Pontoon boats!
