I am looking at a used 1971 17'(Katama or New Port). What is a fair price for this boat? It is all original, blue interior, with a original 1971 100 hp Johnson that runs good. Boat has been left in water (fresh) for few months last summer and has poor boat paint condition with old algae on bottom. What should I look for for problems from being left in the water? They are asking $4500. Is that a high price for this boat? It is in good shape. Thanks Archie

Hey Arch

I picked up a 70 Katama, with a 1988 90HP evinrude, trailer, life vests, flares, noise maker, oars, and 4 6 gallon tanks. The boat needed some minor work, but was usable day I bought it. $4,500.
Clean off the algae, inspect for any problems and repaint if clean.
Good luck
