Default Help please

Hey guys a little advice please. I am buying a boat from a member. The deal has been made for 10,000.00. The vendor seems like a good guy I spoke with him for about 15 minutes. The problem is he will not send me a bill of sale or the serial number unless I deposit the entire 10K into his account. My bank wants to see a bill of sale and at least a serial number before transferring the money. What is the proper protocol and what would you suggest I do. Frankly I am just a little nervous depositing 10K in someones account with no documentation of a transaction.

What would you do. :?:

I see red flags waving on this deal. Drop it and find another boat.
