I bought a 41' 1973 boat in 1985 for $65,000 and I have confidence that I could sell it today for that same price; however, I have spent money keeping the vessel sound and updated. If I had purchased a similar boat new in 1985 for about $180,000, I would likely be able to sell it today for about $110,000. It's not obvious wether I've gained or not, but then as I'm not planning to sell my boat, it's not an issue. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
