This is an important point. It probably depends most upon your plans with the boat. I put a new diesel in my old boat, but I'd kept the boat for twenty years and I've had it another ten since the refit with plans of keeping it for at least ten more. If you don't plan to keep the boat for a good while it might not be worth it. Either way, you can never expect to get the value back for all you put into an old boat. The value has to be in the having and not the plans to sell!
