Thanks for mailing back.I am away at sea at the moment,i work with New
Zealand Oil and Gas (NZOG) and we are presently offshore in New
Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project.We do not have access to phone
at the moment,its 15days off and 15days on,which is why I contacted
you with internet messaging facility.  I am buying this for my
holiday, and i want it to be delivered before my arrival in NT .
However,does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you
selling if you don\'t mind my asking and I will really appreciate if
you can email more info and if possible more photos. I am already in
talks with the courier that will handle the pick-up and delivery to my
family.As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank
deposit,using paypal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need
your bank details.If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up
a paypal account proper at www.paypal.com.au and I will make the
payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email
address,so i can proceed with the payment and contact the courier
agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in my place.
