Good gawd that thing is beautiful! I doubt you could find a brand new boat that looks as good as that one.

500,s ,, Yes, I do know the owner,, about 5hrs worth,, when my drive broke in Sav. 3yrs ago they were nice enough to take us to town on Sun... The boat is clean ,, well taken care of ,, and Mec. well presented ,, I can not speak to its value, that is between the seller and the buyer... I respect your answer to me . I just watch this board alot and to many times People try to get off the question by giving there own desires and position,, which have nothing to do with the question!! Havin said that I hope your friend finds the right boat for him,,,, after all ,,, its about the quality time one spends using his boat ,, not the time spent working on it.
Unless of course its TOO OLD!!

Boat looks super clean.

If he pays that price he will kiss $40-45k good bye instantly in value.

Like Craig said around $80k.

RHC, first off I complemented the boat, it is a pretty boat and well maintained. I made no remark concerning the owner, for him to keep his boat in this shape I wouldnt be surprised that he is a good guy that respects people and equipment, most that take pride in thier own do. I merely stated that that was alot of money for a cafe, as I just was looking at cafe's, TG's and finally found the Tiger I bought. I even suggested another meticulously kept cafe of a member here to look at as a comparison, maybe not item for item as Dans cafe is NA, but none the less, a cafe'. It is HIS money and he can spend it anyway he sees fit, mentioning things to help a freind of another member to make an educated decison isnt a bad thing, dont be so thin skinned. NOONE said it was a bad boat, craig even came back after re reading the ad and changed his post. I can speak as a buyer though, because I just went through it, and the words from some of the people here educated me on what to look for and what to look OUT for... Dont forget that the sum of the parts may be worth more than the whole...Rob

Went over the tax issue with the CPA late last week. I am going to sit on it for now. If I can bust my a$$ and increase my income enough between now and this summer I'll be ok. Otherwise, I'll have to unload it to pay next years taxes.

I don't know the boat, but I like cafe's and that boat looks awsome, plus if Rhc says its nice I'd take a look at it. He is maticulaous with his boat and it is gorgeous.

Nope ... one of the questions was "anyone know this cafe?" the other question was "what would it be worth" .. which then opens the door, wide open, to all the $$$$ and TG comparisons .... and some of us did qualify saying "assuming a TG would be something you'd want compared to a Cafe"

Everyone complimented the rig ... and even spoke about the 'upgrades' ... still doesn't change it's a 1994 Cafe.

Sounds like a personal testimony ... from someone who 'knows' the boat ... exactly what Russ was looking for in response to one of his questions. Good job RHC It is a very nice piece and now with RHC's endorsement we'll see just what it SELLS for.
