Got my title for the 30 footer..
I''ll play the grinch here:
Unless you are a craftsman, and take great lengths to cleverly blend in the repairs, any inexperienced eye, let alone an average surveyor, will easily recognize the boat has having been underwater and extensively repaired, and the market value of this boat will be, and may forever remain, some discount off any "blue book" list value, which is what most folks think of as "market value". So surpressing the history of this boat is probably moot.
Be that as it may (or may not), the really interesting question, remains not whether you''ll get some market value when you sell the boat, but how much of what you end up putting into it, you''ll actually get back... On that of course, only time will tell.
Bye the bye, what''s the latest with the Volvo, and do you have a launch date?
