    Don't any of you have a conscious? I'd have a hard time walking away knowing I stole that boat. Seriously! Sometimes it's nice to throw a couple extra dollars out there and say thanks, because you're still getting a great deal.

    I've always thought it was the sellers responsibility to know the value of the item they are selling. Good score Mark!

    PT,
    No disrespect intended, but what color is the sky in your world?

    Who in their right mind, would go to a garage sale, church bazaar, etc. and recognize a painting by Renoir, Picasso, or Rembrandt marked $25 and say "Hey, that's a masterpiece worth $125,000! I'll give you $115,000."

    Not that it needs explaining, but since you seem to question or impune my integrity here, I bought it without taking it out of the bag, inflating it, or see if anything was missing. For all I know it could have been full of holes and a waste of money.

    Incidentally, for what it's worth, I believe you mean "conscience" and not 'conscious".

    What is the street value of a 1998 water master in a bag that has not been used, tested or looked at for many years? Morality? Before questioning anyones morality, conscience or integrity might we check the mirror, click their name and send that first volley to them via PM?

    My thoughts are if she's happy with the $50 and he's happy to take a chance for the $50 it was a great deal for both sides.

    I'll bet she's smiling to herself for getting rid of that tiny raft that only fit one person and didn't even have a floor. :)

    IF she'd asked me how much I thought it was worth and was willing to wait while I unpacked it and tested it then I'd have offered her a more reasonable price.

    Just my .02 . . .YMMV
