Bitter sweet day. I loved my boat and it's been rock solid, but going to try and upgrade next year.

I Listed it yesterday afternoon, sold this afternoon to the first person that looked at it for 1k over asking. Had 4 back up sight unseen offers.

Crazy times. I had it for 5 years and sold it for about $6500 more then I paid.

When things sell that quickly it’s clear that the price shoulda been higher 🤘

Thanks!

I used my wife Facebook since I don't have one. Went on river whips classified, Havasu river classified and one other one. And I put on Craigslist. Had people calling from both Facebook and Craigslist. Sold it to someone off Craigslist.

It’s always a good thing when you get paid for using something more than a few years! Used my Stoker for 4-5 seasons and made a bit on it as well. Couldn’t have been happier.

Yeah it is! I know the market is hot right now but it is cool to get validation on the hard work it takes to keep a boat in great shape and better than when I bought it.

Hoping the family gets years on dependable fun from it like I did.

Carzy. My boat goes on Craigslist and Facebook today. Good luck with your new boat search.

are you sayin this as a joke Or based on any knowledge other then our drive said this?
Peter has a bad ass GT 800 EFI on hand and the DCB is his new boat, right? If that is the same DCB that Tracy owned, it had a 525 in it, which wasn't enough power to get through the hop in it.

Just sold a bunch of dirt toys and Facebook marketplace got 20 times the responses that Craigslist did. No joke 20:1 easily. Sold 7 toys in 5 days all for what I thought was 50%over value. Funkin Nutz

That's what I can't get out of my mind. I did craigslist and the response was crazy and boat gone. Keep thinking I should have gone higher.

Yeah we've had a few of those... "I'll come right now, full price." Just don't have the time to deal with it today. We're holding off until tomorrow to start the madness. First guy in line is supposed to show up at 0730. If that doesn't happen we have a list of all of those that were 2nd, 3rd, etc. It will be simple... first with the cash gets it.

That's what we had 1st guy said he was coming with a cashier's check for the asking price. So I told the others they might not want to drive out if they don't have some other boats lined up to see. The first guy showed up and the deal was done, but seeing what some of the other boats are selling for still wondering if we should have listed it higher.

I see early 2000s listed for more than they were new. My 2000 I bought new could fetch 30k plus right now. I got 15k credit for it on trade. Which is fine as my Cobra has gone up just as much. No need to sell for me work is insane and nothing i like to upgrade to.
