My last three boats were Craigslist finds, the two before that were eBay but I looked at both in person before bidding.

I never bid sight unseen....never ever...ever when buying a boat.

Err, we contacted the coasties and BoatUS our first day we owned our boat. Didn't end up needing them but also learned quickly what the orange flag meant at the harbor master's office and how ineffective a 2hp motor is into a 25 kt wind. We're just glad there weren't any cameras rolling.
