Default Need your advice

We have our first child due in Feburay and my wife would like to take some time off work, the only way that can happen is if I sell my boat. I have tried Boattrader Online, Speed Wake, e-bay and Criegs List. I have it priced lower than I said I would go and still no solid bites. I work for a local boat builder and have taken great care if this boat, and have a lot of time invested durring the 3 years I've owned it. I still love the boat and not sure what to do. Do I list it here on OSO? Wait till spring? Please any advice will help... 1990 Scarab CV

The only luck I ever had was on OSO. And by the way, nice Scarab, bet it does great on those poker runs.

List it on OSO. Put a post up in Scarab section asking others to keep an eye out for anyone in the market for one.(after you list it on OSO) Good luck

Yup, suck it up for a few months, if you feel the boat is irreplaceable, otherwise let her go and use this as a bargaining chip for the new BIGGER boat. It would be worth the wait, for during the first year you will not be doing much but enjoying your new child and helping your wife...... this is a free ticket to move up.

All good points. I would love to find a secound job that would fund this voyage, but I don't think it will happen. In Michigan most people are lucky to have 1 good job.. I will list it here tomorrow and see what happens. Very nice boat for the money. Makes me said to see the 22' Scarabs sell from 16,000.00 to 18,000.00 all day long. Not even half the boat.....

Good looking boat. I think its priced right. If you can hold on I'd try and sell it in the spring. Good luck.

What boat builder do you work for?

OSO all the way. Thats a cool Scarab you got there. Its like a mini sit-down boat. I dont think you could really sell anything on Speedwake.
