Grumman Sailing Dinghy
If you still have the dinghy, I am interested.
These have gotten a bit of a cult following--a small group of crazy's out there who want what's no longer made and is in short supply!
I would suggest a fair price would be what a new, high quality similar unit would go for and use that as a starting point. I don't know of anyone building aluminum dinghy's...I think Grumman still makes a sailing rig for one of their canoes, so that might be a frame of reference.
I know some about old high quality aluminum runabouts that have a similar following. (Sorry...I know sailors and powerboaters typically don't mix so no quips about that!). Lesser quality, non-complete units bring $500-1,000 and complete units of high quality bring up to $2,000. In excellent condition with good wood and nice sail, mast and rigging I think you have a pretty unique setup.
Let me know via private reply if still available.
