So, how much would a 1973 19' outrage hull be worth? It is in very good condition (came from fresh water up north). But it has no jack plate and is not converted to low profile yet. It has paint on the bottown from the water line down.... Thanks Again...

How is the floor ? Does it need a new fuel tank ? (most do) Is there any delam of the transom top edge ? Does it have the original RPS, console and rail ? Have the through hull fittings been replaced ? Any water in the hull ? Any keel damage ? Any damanage under the rub rail ? Are you selling the hull only or is there a trailer or power ?
Will you deliver ?

I confess, I modified the truth on my original post, I am actually looking at buying (not selling). Smallfrye, you obviously know a lot more than I do about these type of boats. Just trying to figure out what the boat may be worth so I don't grossly overpay. Any estimates of value would be greatly appreciated. The console is original and everything looks to be in very good shape. No obvious damage...By the way, how do you tell if there is water in the hull? Thanks again fof any comments...

If you can borrow a moisture meter, this will help you know what shape the transom is in. They are kind of exspensive to purchase( around $300 I think). Most marinas or fiberglass repair people or surveryors have them. Outraged

Your buying price should be based on fair market value of the boat you want this to be. What I mean by this is; if this boat(only) is worth $4500 once restored, deduct the cost to do all the things mentioned in my previous post. The most costly is hull repair so, do you need to relace the floor(-$400), fuel tank ?($400),is the transom delaminating ?(-$300) etc.
If the cost to repair is more than $4500, put emotion aside and look elsewhere.
Since I resell the boats I refurb, I would not buy a boat needing more than $1500 of repair, and would not pay more than $1500 for that "bad" boat.
Dispite the claims of the other post, mid 70's OR's can be found for $1500-$2500 in good condition, needing clean up and parts only. I just turned down an "Original" LoPro with good trailer for $2000 because it cost $1500 to ship it from CA.
Most $10,000 lopro's you will find have a recent vintage motor hanging on them, accounting for 50% of that value.
good luck, Jim
