HaHah HS, although I was a FOB, I did hear that famous phase

You interpreted my question way too deep. I am just a simple guy thinking to get another boat with the least amount of money. For the last few months of lurking around, I found/felt most sailboat hold their value pretty good.

Unlike buying an auto you have Blue Book value, MSRP and invoice prices to go with. But for a newbie, it is hard to objectively evaluate or compare between sailboats. That is why I tried to seek some info to support the base value of a boat and plus percentage of the upgrade that the owner spent. By doing this way, I hope to separate/minimize the emotional urge to buy syndrome. I hope this makes sense.

Many thanks
