      I buy and sell a lot on ebay (not boats) and it is against sBay rules to bid on your own auctions. They will boot you out if they catch you. Many people do it by having a wife or family member bid for them tho.. It happens a lot.

      When I checked on the auction at the time it was over $4000 it appeared
      to me that the seller was actually bidding on his own auction to drive
      up the price. When I went to check the sellers statistics against the
      bidder who appeared to be the seller I got a message from ebay that
      they had suspended the auction. When I went back all the bids by the
      bidder that appeared to be the seller had been removed and the price
      was reduced to reflect the bids not including the ones who appeared to
      be the seller. Apparently ebay does not view it as ethical that the
      seller bid up his own auction.
