My boat went in a month, for the price I listed it at, which was very reasonable to get a quick sale and the boat was obviously not rotting. Most if not all boats I looked at I felt were at minimum 20% over value, had been sat on the market a while, and had a sad air of neglect, a couple were downright depressing.
