How do you value a boat?

Is there a vref service or some rough appraisal feature for boats. How much should I list my 97 Nautique with 1000 hours, no trailer, rotten upholstery, in the water its whole life, leaky carburator and a rat or two living in it? It wouldn't start today so I'm pissed.

    Thanks Brent, that was exactly what I needed!

    Of course, as I seriously consider giving John another classified I realize that the road will probably take a month to dry out - if it doesn't rain again. Then I have to fix the washed out section - if I can get the tractor started. Maybe I should barter it for a new tractor.

    Maybe you should ask someone to write your ad for you.  I don't think you will make it as a use boat salesman.  Dave

    Isn't everyone looking for a fixer upper now a days? This boat is all potential! But I don't actually seem to be able to sell anything.

    so what is it worth? Do the rats come with the boat?

    Somewhere around 10K. But I'd have to wash all the rat droppings out, scrape the algae, fix the upholstery, fix the leaky carburator  and tow the boat out on the muddy road. Hardly worth the effort. Especially since it is still a sweet slalom pull.

    I did get it started yesterday though. And fixed the road where it had washed out. I'd make you a good deal John...
