Looking to move up a little bigger,

1985 outrage 18
-5-6k commercial grade T-top rocket launchers
-electronics box
-04 130 hp Honda 4s SS prop 260hrs
-hydraulic steering 08
-Garmin 498 GPS/FF Bluechart
-Ship to shore radio w/offshore antena 08
-27 gallon Kodiak baitwell 08
-Leaning post w/ rodholders
-front and rear spreader lights
-Fuel tank replaced 05
-Galvanized Shorelandr trailer new wiring,axel,jack 08

Bottom line is Hull is in great shape but needs new bottom coat the top half was painted prior to my purchasing it unfortunately I would have liked to keep the gelcoat, I am willing to sell it or trade up for 16k now or I am going to have it awlgripped and bottom painted over the winter. I will post pics when it stops raining and I have some time in the light.

Please feel free to email with questions, Thanks!

Are you asking $16,000 for this 23 year old boat or am just reading the for sale ad wrong? I am in the market for a 18-20 foot Whaler. I am looking at three 1999-2000 18-20' Whalers for 16-19k. 2 Have new power. You are asking 10-12k right?

Actually, I am asking 16k, I would buy a classic whaler b/f I would buy a 99/00 any day, the new ones are pieces of crap if you knew anything about whalers, and I have alot more into it than 16k, so get off this thred and go look on ebay for your 2000 whaler with new power.

Obviously the Honda is way too heavy for this model boat.
That alone will reduce the value. And then there is your attitude.

I often wonder why people who are selling boats do not put in there location. If they had there location in their profile, then an east coast person would know if he would have to travel across the country to buy a boat. I find difficult that people who ask for advice a lot of time do not give a location. Just the state would be helpful.

The seller can ask whatever price he wants. It would be helpful to know the location of boat and photos.

I would love to have this era of Outrage.

I agree with the seller asking what he wants but pictures and location are a must. His reply to criticism/opinion reflects he may keep his boat for a while.

The painted hull devalues it in a big way to me.

He has spent a lot of money and may not get it back?

To answer a few comments...

-Honda: 500 lbs its been discussed in other threads it is not too heavy for the boat and it runs amazing, put the batteries in the console which help offset the weight and has nothing in the rear washwell.

-Price: I think it is reasonable obviously I just listed it and would be willing to negotiate but I am tempted just as much to keep on to it and restore it even more.

-Location: Maine

-A$$holes on this website: I think this website has a ton of useful resources and helped me a great deal in some of the restorations of this vessel but some of you people need to get a life I think I am done trying to sell it on here if anyone wants pictures I will email them. I am out of here you can now make all your condescending comments.

Newtauk and others like him: The seller has the right to ask whatever he likes for his boat. If you don't agree with the price - look somewhere else! Unless - of course - someone pooped on your chair, or some such, and you're spoiling for a fight. In either case - go somewhere else! We don't need or want your "opinions".

Striperdoc, I think Newtauk1 should have sent you a private email to discuss whether or not you are overpriced. Price issues should be settled off line; but your next statements about newer Whalers being crap and telling him to get off the thread are condescending in themselves and turn off potential buyers here. Might be you that needs the life...

Whether you think the price is reasonable or not, it is in extremely poor taste to jump on the guy right off the bat, after the initial post. I have seen a couple classic outrages on here the last couple of years where the asking price was low 20s. This is a sales forum, which means that if "you would never pay that for that boat," then its none of your damn business.

If the price remains way to high, after a while the owner will take the hint and lower the price themselves, or people around here will start making (constructive) suggestions.

In the end: "the guy writing the check decides what it is really worth"
