Whats it worth?

7 posts in this topic

My brother has recently bought a 1967 Larson 16' in fair condition with a Mercury 1000 (100 hp) that runs good. It also has a 36lb Minnkota trolling motor. He plans on using it this summer and then maybe selling it. He would just like to get a rough idea as to what he could ask for it. He originally got a steal and is going to try to make a profit after cleaning it up and getting everything working properly. I don't have any pics to post so nobody needs to ask. Any help would be grealty appriciated.

With that old of a boat it's all about who you can find to buy it - most people in the general public won't be that interested in purchasing it probably, so you would almost need to find a collector.

I'm guessing the guy that got rid of it was the one that got the "steal". grin

Like marine_man said, it's tough to find a buyer for that boat. Believe it or not, you could probably pull the motor off and sell it for more that the whole package.

I was going to write that I'd offer "17.00 or a pair of choppers", but I'm not sure how many people listen to KQRS bits...

I agree with the other, probably not much. The motor is worth more I'm sure. I wouldn't try to sell in the fall, hard to get rid of them at a good price then. I would wait till early spring. If you fix it up real nice you could turn a profit, but I don't know what you paid for it. Plus what's you time and material worth?

You see a lot of boats like that on craigs list for cheap sometimes free or free with buying the trailer. Especially as it gets closer to winter. But if you find the right person in the spring or early summer you might be able to get something for it.

Dtro, good stuff, I was thinking that same thing...(the steal thing, not the motor thing)

MinnesotaMongo, "weahll, that woulda been pretty nice"

He plans on selling it in the spring or early summer and it is structurally good, just very dirty so materials will be cheap. I thought about just selling the motor too and we do have a place that the boat can just sit avter that so we will see what happens I guess. Thanks for your help.

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
