Default Signature boats... interesting find

My grandfather found this old boat, he says it has sat here for 5+ years and hasn't moved. I know it has been outside, which is bad, but what do you guys think this thing is worth? I want tho be sure and have all my ducks in a row before I contact the owner.

I think it is a Signature 38 the vin # reads XV380160678

Thanks for your help (any will be appreciated) and does anyone know the boat, I think it is out of Michigan.

If the boat is stollen and left here; I have been screwed by an insurance company before on a boat salvage and am not interested in even telling them where it is located without a finders fee.

The guy that does everyones props around here (Brian/Valley Propeller) has a 33 (I believe) signature in KILLER condition sitting on a trailer in the back of his shop. It's been there for a good 10-15 years. No motors/drives. I believe the transom isn't cut.

Find out who owns the land it's sitting on, and ask them, or contact the state it's registered in and see if they can let you know from the registration numbers.
