I read about this scam on boatertalk. Basically somebody from out of the country says they want to buy your boat (typically in broken english) They say they will pay you in a cashiers check then the scam begins. I can't remember all the details but I got an email from the scam artist today and will post it so everyone knows what to watch for.
