Re: Donating my Cal 29 to Charity

I was a lowballer on all 3 of my boats. Unfortunately, as the "what's a boat worth" thread illustrates, any asset is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.
Every boat has an intrinsic value that is not tied to changes in the market. I think $8K is a good value when you consider what they're getting. Problem is most people are strapped for cash. One guy offered to trade me his gun collection. Several want to finance.

I think many buyers expect me to lower my price as fall approaches. I'd rather give it away than give them that satisfaction..... not very altruistic.

Sea Scouts is a good option but I'd like to use the proceeds to help someone in need.
