Caution: If It Seems Too Good To Be True...

It probably is:
" Sailboat Morgan Nelson Merek Design Race - $5800 "
(36' Morgan Nelson Mark)
36ft Morgan Nelson Merek Design Race

Morgan Nelson Merek Design Race

Sailboat Morgan Nelson Merek Design Race

Hi I'm Aaron,
The 36ft Morgan Nelson/Merek Design Race/cruiser with Trailer included is still for sale. The Morgan 36 was conceived as

a fast, seaworthy and comfortable racer/cruiser with exceptional appointments.Hull material ;

Fiberglass. The interior has a contemporary look, and is about 5 yrs old. With lively dark blue

fabrics and contrasting teak wood tones accent a segregated yet efficient use of space. Three axle trailer with electric brakes

in great condition - Included. My final price is $5,800 with trailer. I know it's really cheap but we need cash money to pay the

mortgage on my house and during this financial crisis you can't sell anything for its real value, so let me to know if you are

still interested. I will put the Boat on eBay at $5,800 buy it now! That way you will receive assistance for the purchase,

paperwork, title transfer, because I'm member from 2002 and I have 100% positive feedback.
Thank you.
When I asked where this boat is to look at, this is the answer I got:

Hi again,
the Boat is already at a shipping company. I took to them to be able to ship it to a potential buyer whilst I'm out of town, working on a drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico. My brother in law works at this small shipping company, and he promised me that it will cost me or you nothing to ship it in the ground us. Like I told you in first e-mail the Jet Skiís is listed on eBay and that lets me use their secured system. I'm very busy with my job and I'm sorry I can't meet you in person. According to eBay you have 5 days from the time you receive the Jet Skiís to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not.
So if you really want it I will give you directions/link to the auction on eBay motors because this is the only way that I'm going to sell this Boat .
Mail me ASAP if you are still very interested in my jet skis because now I have more buyers still interested.
Draw your own conclusions!

I got this in an email today

Hi I'm Aaron,
The 36ft Morgan Nelson/Merek Design Race/cruiser with Trailer included is still for sale. This is a real performance cruiser with the emphasis on performance, yet beautifully and comfortably appointed below decks. The Morgan 36 was conceived as a fast, seaworthy and comfortable racer/cruiser with exceptional appointments. Length (feet); 36.0 - Hull material ; Fiberglass. The interior has a contemporary look, and is about 5 yrs old, with very much a "today look". With lively dark blue fabrics and contrasting teak wood tones accent a segregated yet efficient use of space. Three axle trailer with electric brakes in great condition - Included. My final price is $5,800 with trailer. I know it's really cheap but we need cash money to pay the mortgage on my house and during this financial crisis you can't sell anything for its real value, so let me to know if you are still interested. I will put the Boat on eBay at $5,800 buy it now! That way you will receive assistance for the purchase, paperwork, title transfer, because I'm member from 2002 and I have 100% positive feedback.
