    I am asking bloody decks what my 1994 Gregor Seahawk is worth. I just got it out of the shop that was about $5000. I rebuilt the whole deck on the rod holders steering wheel steering cable throttle control lights anchors beat tank plumbing you name it this boat has a new seats pedestals. I'm thinking 6500 I have seen other boats going for that much or less not as nice as mine.

    I have no idea what your boat is worth, but maybe you should have asked that question before spending $5K on repairs?

    This boat took every penny I had and I need a bigger boat with a cabin. I really made a bad investment with this boat but I'll be doing a good friend if fever and he will get to have a for a perfect boat.

    What makes you think next time will be any different? Learn from your mistake -- boats are never a good investment. Even if you buy it right, at least 50% of whatever you put into a boat for upgrades and repairs is gone on day one, and every year thereafter 1/4 to 1/3 of what is left is gone. And that is best case. If you aren't psychologically and financially prepared for that reality, you should keep the boat you have.

    $5,000 spent at a boat shop does not equate to the same value when you sell it.

    There's definitely a market for these aluminum skiffs due to the ability to (relatively) easily customize them to your liking, but you also come across a lot of projects with questionable build quality and looming safety concerns. As a result, prospective buyers will low-ball the shit out of you stating they just want the hull and maybe the trailer and don't want to pay for any of the other stuff, no matter how much blood sweat and money you put it into. I'm redoing my 14 footer and have taken pictures every step of the way so that if I do decide to sell, I can show buyers what everything under the floors and benches looks like. I think thats the best you can do.

    He asked what I wanted I said around 6. I said I'll set a asking price and we can bargain plus I am going to try to do some work for him. I am not financially ready to own about . But I will miss my boat and I want to build another one like it in the future.

    Sooo you had the boat out twice, and now you think it needs to be bigger, wait until summer, and do some local fishing.
    19' is plenty of boat. Try to enjoy the results of your 5 year boat build.

    I started with a 12' aluminum skiff, then a 16' runabout. Now I have a 25' Skipjack. Even though I love my Skippy, I sure do miss my little boats.

    Tomorrow is the big day. I know I spent a lot of money on it but if I can get some to pay towards another boat and pay all these phone bills I'll be in a better spot. I plan to buy another one of these boats in the near future when I know I can afford it.

    I started with a 12'. Jumped to a skippy 20. Now I have an 18' skiff and couldn't be happier. Keep your skiff, use it awhile.
