Fountains, Cigarettes, Outerlimits and Formula all level off after 6-7 years, but Scarabs keep dropping. I cant find any ryme or reason to it. After that amount of time most boats are on a first or secound re-rig and have very little original parts.
I agree completely with that. Sad but very true. I really think this even affects the Larry Smith built boats as well. Just the Scarab name being assoicated with Wellcraft has hurt the price of the Larry Smith Scarabs. Wellcraft used a lot of middle of the road accessories and cheap rigging and construction. Its evident ( and I own one). The other Scarab line..... well what about the Gentry boat. Solid and good as any of them.

That 43 on his web site looks BAD A$$. Everything he ever built is fast and solid. Now back to dreaming of a way to gather some mega bucks so I can buy one.
