I agree I think I am going to sell the boat, I have over 50,000 invested in the boat right now, and I cant see sinking anymore into it, I will take any reasonable offer.

I noticed the ad said new outdrives. I thought you just had them painted.

I wanted to ask everyone on OSO, do you think the price of 45,000 is too much to ask for my Apache???, I really dont know what to list or ask for it, but I thought 45,000 was a good starting point, I know I will never get back what I have into the boat, but the boat is all most new and in perfect cond. please give me your opions or make me a offer.

You've done a ton of work to the boat and (as you already know) won't get out of it the expense you've put into it. At $45K with the need to rebuild the engines at another around $6K+ is a tall order. I noticed another 28 Apache in the classifieds at $35K with blowers, but not near the upgrades as you've done.

Sorry for the loss and GOOD LUCK with the sale.
