I don't think there is anything wrong with your approach. Economics accounts for personal preferences. I don't see enough value in a low hours and "low mileage premium" because I prefer to spend that on something a little flashier. Didn't I say that I was superficial? :biggrin1: Both of our approaches are defensible from a rational/economic standpoint.The lower miles or hours to me means that there is less time for poor maintenance to occur or abuse.
As an example:
I have never owned a new vehicle, buying used with 50k miles or less has worked for me.
I agree with boat motors, I have owned some old motors that ran great and never had a problem.
Most people would need platform sandals to get the kind of elevation I want. I would need a a step ladder. :biggrin1:but AO just wear some platform sandals.
What it would be worth to me and what it will likely sell for this time of year are two different things.How much is this boat worth?
Whats your opinion.
IMO $12K - $14K.
My gut feeling would be $17-20K as well.What it would be worth to me and what it will likely sell for this time of year are two different things.
My guess is he will get around $20k for it.
I think it really should be around a $17k boat. He has some nice options for trolling, and that canvas that is on the boat is worth more than $1k.
If it was listed in Snagged's stated price I would take a risk and buy it with the intent of flipping it.
To me, the biggest draw backs is I don't want a 2-stroke boat, and I would want to update the electronics and put on an iPilot.
200 Yammie would be the top HP on this boat. Starts in the high $30s. With a trolling motor, electronics, kicker and bimini, you are looking at high $40s. Kind of pricey until you understand the construction. This is basically a copy of Lund's IPS2 hull but bouble plated on the bottom all the way through like on higher end Alumacrafts. Lund's double plating is only on the bow. I like the option to have two seats in the back. My two youngest ones are very competitive (like their old man) and they would be fighting all the time with just one chair... ;DWhat cost with that 300 Yammie?
Options can add up fast. And every Lund is worth its weight in gold... At least every Lund owner seems to think so. And it is apparently contagious. :Wow $20k. I guess I need a boat price update.
I didn't pay that much for my Monark in 2002, new.
A 20 footer walk through windshield with a carbed 125 hp.
Factory canvas no fish finder no trolling motor, boat motor trailer.
One of the major complaints about convertible jump seats/casting decks is the inconvenience of having to constantly flip the jump seat down in order to either access the live well or travel to a different location. I avoided having this feature on my Fish Hawk for that reason and I only have 2 seats as that will accommodate the ideal number of anglers on my 16' 8" boat- especially if casting and/or fly fishing. Of course, if you seldom keep fish, this is a moot point....... >.... I like the option to have two seats in the back.
