Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.

I would take anything that you have which indicates that the sale was "as is" and that the buyer had the opportunity to inspect the boat and trailer. In other words, under those conditions, it would be very unlikely that he could win in court, provided you did not misrepresent the condition of the vehicle. So anything that you can bring to court which would indicate that would be helpful.

Does that answer your question(s)? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied. Also, please remember to provide a positive rating via the stars (and note that your positive rating is the only way that I'll get credit for helping you, so it is much appreciated!). Thank you. :)
