Nice looking tin raffle.

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Not too sure of the details and I am waiting for a call back but for $50 this would be a heck of a boat.

Talked to the guy and it seems a little off. My advice is to steer clear.

I wouldn't touch a craigslist raffle with a 10' pole.

Sounds legit,If he wants 100 people to inspect the boat at the same time as ticket sales.Then he shoud draw a winner on that same day.But,that only works if everyone shows up!!

Pretty sure it is illegal unless he has a gaming license.

Ad says flat bottom but pics show a mod v tunnel hull. And I'm still wondering what he's claiming has only been on the water 5 times.

Yeh kind of fishy, pardon the pun. So tickets for $50.00 a pop, he says he’s only going to sell 100 of them. “SURE” So if my math is correct that’s 5K. Someone should call him up and offer him $5500 and see what he says. This has scam written all over it. [-X
