Is this boat worth anything if sold less engines and drives.

I would leave gimbles, boxes, transoms, wiring, etc.

Very interesting boat, I like the "whale tail"....very cool looking boat but you can tell visably it needs some cleaning.

Pricing the boat is tough especially in todays boating economy and they say if you havent sold it by the 4th of July you'll be winterizing it...I guess it all depends on how aggressively you want to price the boat for a sale....

Good Luck

I actually just bought the week before 4th of July.

It needs a lot of TLC, glass work, upholstery and a paint job.

Any ideas on what to ask for it?

OMG, thats going to be a tough one. Maybe $10,000+ for the hull and trailer. Motor and exhaust have the most value.

Not really planning on taking it apart for a couple months since it is running good and has the seating space of a cruiser. But it depends on the deal.

Get what back together???

I did touch up paint and a new u-joint. Boat runs absolutely perfect. I got about 20 minutes of combined helicopter time with the throttles held at 6000rpms. Red line is 6300 rpms. The boat runs so smooth through the chop. I took the cabin doors off and now no rattle at all.

You could put a screen on the front and have a floating movie room

Seriously I would give you a hundred for it if you let me kick you in the balls when we are done
