Re: How much should I offer for this boat
The motor can be valued with or without the boat but with the boat it is generally worth less at FMV..
Why is that?
How much would the motor depreciate if it only has a dozen hours on it.
It has an electric start which in my opinion is a very nice but expensive extra that in some sense discounts the motor more because of the installation necessary to move it to a new boat.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
