A broken boat eliminates at least 70 or 80% of potential buyers.

Yep.

Your gonna have to find a die hard apache guy to even get an offer.

You need to fix it first, if you want to get some money for it.

I wish I could afford it right now, I would gladly add it to the collection.

Man, the boat looks great!!
You seem to have issues with making a commitment though.
You've been back and forth so many times just on this thread...

Fix the f-en boat and enjoy it.
Or sell it.
Just make a decision.
This thread has become less about the boat, and more about you making a decision, for me at least.

I guess I have gone back and forth alot this boat as to selling or keeping it!!, I have never done a restoration on a boat, it is amazing the amount of work and time that goes into it!!!, I have always owned turn key newer boats Scarabs, Donzi's and Sonic's, I just feel like I put alot of work into her and now it needs more, I own my own business and have little time as it is for boating or familey. I guess my back is to the wall and just want out. If I have to keep I will fix it and make it right, I will have to see if I get any offers!! You do make a great point there Chris!!!!

I could find $10 Grand, but then I'm "ALL IN"

I'd have to paddle it around for a while.

I know it can be discouraging, but hang in there Man.
It is a sweet ass Boat. Just carry the ball across the line.
Many of the worlds most successful people did not get there the first Time.

You know, by my persistence on this, I'm only trying to egg you on to do the right thing. The thing you set out to do originally - FINISH THE BOAT!!!!
You owe it to yourself, and the boat, to make her right.
She's a sweet ride.
You have to see it out until the end.
Maybe it's a nautical thing, but, you never abandon the ship.
Keep going - she's coming along nicely.
You'll be very happy when everything is tightened up.
