After looking at used boats, using various on-line resources and some print ads, I have come to the conclusion that some people think their hulls must be made of gold. Comparing the book values of the boats and motors to what is being asked, one will find that most asking prices are nowhere near book value. Usually at least $1500-3000 or more higher, and that is when using the highest valued model motor of the year/hp specified. Probably just gonna buy a new one in the next few years. That's what I ended up doing when I bought my current motorcycle. After a while of searching and comparing I decided everyone wanted too much for their used bikes. Went and bought a new one of my own and I am very satisfied with my choice. I know how it has been maintained and ridden from day one and I feel like I got a more than fair deal, especially considering what people around here were asking for their used machines. Just my $.02. Hope you get lucky and find what you are looking for at a fair price.
