    Is that boom mounted by a bolt through a hole drilled in the pylon? .

    The original boom mount stands compromised. Anything else?

    "I sprayed a blue candy over the metal flake then cleared it. There was no priming or sealing. The swim deck was bed lined and painted over." Quote from the original owner.

    Where does one get a "marine survey?"[/QUOTE]

    Look up marine surveyors on the web or yellow pages

    I don't burn boats. LOL I want to sell it! That was a quick response to a ridiculous quote and reply. Really? #itsallgood

    Thanks, Scott and all, it looks great! I've put in a message to the last owner. I'm hoping he will respond. So I'm guessing gel coating makes a difference? Mastercraft excellence means a lot to me and I will disclose all processes to represent a true product.

    Boat looks great in the pics, and like others have said, doesn't look like paint. The flake looks awesome.

    I agree with soacj......pics look great.
    If that's indeed gelcoat and not paint, very desirable. $5-$6K or more.
    Get a marine survey done first so that you know what to price it at and the next buyer can see that survey which should show everything they need to know. A surveyor can tell you if it has been painted or re-gelcoated.

    OP, you're going to get some far flung estimates on value until you have someone determine what was done to that hull...Paint (no bueno), new gelcoat (maybe good), or just a simple wetsand/buff job (probably best.)

    Good luck with your sale.

    Thank you, gentlemen, for your responses. I will consider this in my final price.

    Not to be a smart a$$ but for the real person, one would have sanded and buffed out the original gel coat for the purist result..... get the picture?

    Back to your original question... $2,800.............
    .

    I'd burn the boat before I'd accept that for it.... Really?
