Default Part out my Cig? What do you think?

Well, I can't believe is hasn't sold yet. 5 positive buyers went through survey (passed 100%) and even got insurance quotes of around 16-$1700 per yr. then backed out for various financing reasons.
I was just thinking about parting out the boat
What do you think?
Hull & rigging inc cockpit & cabin $25k
SSM3A drives, gimbals, trim cyls. inner plates & steering $14k
625hp high end Blue Lightning marine engines complete, turn key motors with 110hrs $12k/pair
I hate to do it but I'm considering ......................

I have had deals range from 65k to an all time low of 52k.
At this point, I'd take 50. Check out the classifieds for pics.
Turn key, on a nice trailer, ready to go............

I agree with Too Old. Pull the arch (makes it look old/funny) and after looking at the pics I would spend a couple bucks and replace the throttles/shifters with modern stuff so that it doesn't seem as old. Other than that I think it is a very nice boat and if I had some bucks would probably take a look at it. I will talk it up around the Chicago area over the winter for you.

I would also try it with out the arch. I would NOT pull it apart to sell it in pieces. The only way that will work is if you are selling the pieces real cheap, and you do not want to do that. Best bet is to keep it together and hang in there. Is it in Florida yet?

I agree removal of the arch will most certainly update the look. The installation of updated throttles is not a major investment and will also increase resale value. In the case of marine parts the whole is usually worth more than the sum of the parts unless you can afford to wait untill someone needs or wants excatly what you have to sell, otherwise you will probably get less than what you are currently being offered. Just my opinion and it is worth excatly what you have just paid for it. Non the less hope it helps.

I like the arch personally (okay no beating on Jay here guys)
but turn it around, and take the Raytheon off of it
Hummm 50 g's is not THAT bad but I think a little high.
sad thing is something is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it.
I like it, nice ride
Maybe get some vinyl graphics to jazz it up, that is what all the newbies in boating are going for.
simple stripe or line is not enough, they want wild 50 thousand dollar paint jobs, to save yourself some money, go to raceline digital or something like that and jazz it up a notch, probably have some more interest in it once you do that.

I've been watching this boat for a while now, I'm just not in the position to make a move (so I've tried to stay quiet about it ). Dave, I agree with the posts above - pull the arch and replace the shifters/throttles. In fact, in my "if it were mine" scenarios, those were the first two projects I had scheduled.

Who knows, we might be in the market come spring, if you still have it I'll be in touch (but seriously, good luck selling it, I know you've had it on the market for a while now). Better sell it before Too Old gets done with the Mistress, otherwise there will be two mid-80 Cigs for sale on OSO!
