    Default Drascombe Lugger - CraigsList - New York

    https://newyork.craigslist.org/lgi/b...286880268.html

    There is no real description - but the "keywords" include "wooden boat".

    No connection

    The same boat is listed on DC Craigslist. Wonder where it really is?

    That is so weird - it seems like a very weird boat to use for any sort of scam - the number of people interested in sail and oar open boats isn't that large.

    Many listings and use of key words are hallmark of A scam. Someone has taken images and text from my recent ad and done same. And those photos are all over the internet. I might have thought small boats under the radar for this sort of thing but apparently any somewhat unique item will do.

    2 of the 3 photos were taken from the wikipedia page - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drascombe_Lugger - and the other was from here - https://www.sailingtoday.co.uk/chart...-with-a-yacht/. (This is the first time I've used Chrome's "search Google for image" feature: pretty neat.).

    This is definitely suspicious, and most likely a scam.
