As a general rule you can expect to get back about half the value of your capital improvements when you sell a boat, ignoring the value of your time in any of the related work. Given the cost of parts and materials, I do not think many people ever make a profit on a used boat, let alone get back most of what they poured into it. Generally the cheaper the purchase price for a boat considering its type and size, then the more it will end up costing you to own.
