Re: troubling news..

Hey Denise,

Did the guy listing the boat on CraigsList tell you that the decks need to be re-cored?

Well, I don't know that it does either... but it illustrates my point that you don't know everything about why that boat is priced so far below the value that you see in yours. This boat could be a great deal, priced fairly, or even a rip-off... Unless you understand the seller's motivation, his price should have NO influence on the value in your boat.

I paid about NADA retail for mine, and have put that much again into it. So, by now I've paid 200% of NADA, at that time that I bought it... However, I just checked NADA, and see that the estimated value of my boat has decreased since I bought my boat...

My only justification is that I did not buy this as a FINANCIAL investment. Also, even if I could, I would not sell it for what I have invested in her.
