Hello Mary
Great reading from you. I am interested in the immediate purchase. I will take it for the price you\'ve mentioned and I will gladly cover PayPal charges from my end.

I can only make the payment via paypal because it\'s very safe and secure for both of us. In case you don\'t have a paypal account I\'ll advice you to register for one at www.paypal.com. I have a private pick-up agent that will contact you in-order to handle the pick-up at any location of your choice once the payment is completed.

Question: I\'ll like you to tell me more about the present mechanical condition, how often do you service it, mechanical history, have you ever experience any mechanical problem with it before and why are you selling it?

Mary,
Thanks for the info. I\'m very much interested and I want you to know that you don\'t have to surf around looking for buyers because you\'ve just found one. This is a gift for my Dad in Idaho, I hope you understand my eagerness to complete this transaction a.s.a.p...?

I am away at sea at the moment, I work as an Oceanographer and I am presently offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project. Once I make the paypal payment and is transferred into your account, the agent will contact you in-order to handle the pickup from your location and he will also be of assistance concerning the change of ownership by presenting all the information\'s/documents needed to complete the change of ownership.

This transaction is based on HUGE amount of trust and I expect to see this from your end as it is on mine.
