  • Can't you just wait the 19 hours? Him trying to get more money for it isn't a bad idea either though! Good luck!

  • I'm guessing he is seeing if someone out bids you. He would be a fool to close it early b/c he's hoping someone out bids you and you do the same and so on. Hopefully that doesn't happen, but g/l

  • Don't make payment until the auction is over. Does it have the Buy it Now option?

  • Don't pay for it until the action is over. What kind of history does he have on ebay? I would say stay away from this deal. Have you ever used ebay before? I would report him. It sounds like he wants to take your money and then take the money of the person that wins the bid. The whole auction may be a lie. He may not even have a boat.
