Even with the trailer its not worth the 19k, you could put a 100k in it and still not be on the water

All in the eye of the beholder. Seems like it's in relatively good shape so probably not that far off the mark. Now, the guy who was selling a P29 Scarab last year with no motors for like $39K, he was dreaming.

There's a thread on here from the guy that restored it originally. Had 6's and big power. SUPER nice. Forget what happened and why it ended up the way it sits now. Maybe illness?

What needs to happe to it is cut the deck off, make a CC and throw triple 400 mercs on it.

There's pics floating around of a maroon Revolution this was done too and it looks really good.

There are many people with more money than brains, but everyone has to learn for themselves. I guess if you have more time and resources than money maybe it is the way to go. As we get older hopefully we get wiser, today I look at it differently than years ago, now I think for everyday I am working on it, it is a day I could have been boating. There is enough to do just to keep them running and looking good. Well at least whoever buys them will know they got what they wanted when their done.

Very well said! I love working on boats but not when it’s summer and years away from hitting the water. Projects are good for spring in fall but you have to have a back up for the summers. That doesn’t even touch on the dollars

I have noticed looking thru craigs, fb marketplace and various other places... its not just boats with dillusional prices... There is a LOT of stuff out there, music gear, guitars, pa stuff etc, atvs, dirt bike sleds, all sorts of stuff...
In the middle of a pandemic, people should be hurting...but if you go into your favorite pawn shop, or used music store etc, the shelves are bare.

I totally get the allure of some
of these projects and seeing the potential. I totally see what it could be. If I only I had a money tree!!!

I think some of these “projects” have reached their expiration date and they’re past the point of help for a lack of a better explanation. Some would be literally difficult to find someone to GIVE them to that’s willing to restore them let alone buy them. But the allure and potential is there. So they’re for sale.

I swear if I was a billionaire I’d go around and restore all these boats just on principal!
