  I Bought A Used Starfire Last Year

I paid $1600 for a late '90's edition in immaculate Black Gold. My Starfire has built-in skid plates. I first paddled one years ago, but couldn't find one used and couldn't afford a new one. I bided my time and am bittersweet that I waited for this boat. It's the best boat I've ever planted my backside in, and I kick myself that I could have been paddling one all these years.

Charlie Wilson may chime in, but I believe the Black Gold version was a bit more expensive than the white gold? Not to take anything away from the white gold, as the ones I've seen have been really beautiful and well made boats. Heck, I'd buy it myself so I could have a 3-seat version if I could afford another. But I'd be sleeping in the barn if I dared do that(LOL)!

As for "Best offer," I say heck yeah! You may get a pretty good offer on it with the Coldens going for $3K. I'm really looking forward to seeing your pics of the best boat in the world. Come to think of it, after all these years, we are down to 5 boats. 3 of them are Yost designed Bells. Better canoes than kevlar, Yost designed Bells just don't exist IMHO. Good luck! BTW, here's my beauty:
