Seems a little fishy...
So I was checking out ebay today, and ran across this deal:
I even went as far as checking NADA value ($5870 low/ $6640 avg). At first I figured this guy probably forgot to charge the battery or something stupid like that. Maybe an easy fix. Get a good deal... Then I noticed the guy's email addy... Rockytopmotorsports... REALLY??? I mean they are a motorcycle dealer and all, but come on... Something sounds fishy to me... Anyone have any input?

I saw that ad the other night and thought the price was high for a RXP that needed work.
If the engine will not make a complete revolution you can bet that the problem's more serious than a discharged battery. To the extent the seller indicates sales tax will be collected it makes me think he's a dealer.
I wouldn't be surprised if the supercharger washers failed and caused the timing chain to break. If that's the case, repairs can get pretty expensive.

I'm also guessing he is a dealer. I googled rockytopmotorsports, and they look like a motorcycle dealer.

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking... I was a mechanic before I joined the Navy, and whenever ANYTHING I own breaks, I fix it... At least diagnose the problem, state in the ad what is wrong, and don't screw someone over...
I see he had some offers...wonder what they were?

He also may have clear ownership of the boat but I guarantee you he does not have a title.
TN does not title PWC.
Also note that the pic did not have registration numbers on the boat.
I am not conviced it was a scam, per say, but something screwy was going on.
