but true. These boats do not seem to be worth much. I sold an identical boat a year and half ago for $350. I advertised it here and on Craigslist for $600 and got some traffic from curious people but no solid prospects. I finally put a for sale sign on the thing and carried it with me to a paddling symposium where one fellow did buy it for $350. It was the only real offer I had on the thing after about a month of trying.

I thought it a shame as this sort of construction, albeit in modern and lighter material, commands in excess of $3000/boat.

A woman, more in tune with the market than I am, offered the opinion that fiberglass boats were not much in demand and would rarely fetch much more than $350.

I actually forced myself to sell the boat buy buying so many others that I had no room for it. I might do it differently if I had it to do over.

It was a pretty boat and a well-behaved one. Think about keeping it.


P.S. Today there is an 18' fiberglass canoe in my local (CT) paper that is free to a good home. Ugh!
