I'll keep this short and sweet, what's the value of a 1983 Montauk in 95% condition, no spider cracks, stock condition, (but is bottom painted), hull only, trailer included?

I can't believe I am even considering this drastic, distasteful, and unfortunate measure...

In Southern New England, if it's really mint condition except for bottom paint and the trailer is fairly new and usable, I would place the value at $5500, if you are willing to wait a while for the right buyer. Not everyone is going to want to put a new engine on.

Personally I think 5500 is a bit high, espechally in todays market and being the end of the season.......

Photos would help, and quality of trailer would be a consideration.Are there controls on the boat?

Yeah, that's about what I was thinking too. I'm not gonna let her go just yet, but I just thought I would check the consensus in case I need to in the near future.

By hull only do you mean that there is no console or RPS?

No, I mean she's in 95% stock original condition, clean, original wood, RPS, everything. 100% if you count the motor, which is the problem. It might even be fixable but its fixable for more than I am willing to invest in a 25 year old Johnson, and repowering is just too expensive given current conditions.

I probably will not sell it, but every now and then getting a little shot of cash is tempting, and she has been a lawn ornament for a year now. I was feeling a little sour on things in general yesterday when I posted this and just wanted to get some feedback from fellow CW'ers about what it might be worth in its current unusable state.

Don't do it. Clean out your garage/attic/basement- you would not believe the things I have sold on Craigslist.

List several things at once, keep a list of what you have listed, use your mobile # and carry your list with you. Schedule appts. I have unloaded things I have not used in years, freed up storage space and made a little $$$ as well.

I am in your predicament, sell or repower. I am holding on.

Good luck.

Both good cheap repowers to get the boat going again, the 70 has been for sale for awhile and they would probably take less. The 90 would look great on a montauk.

The seller of the 70 Johnson just reposted it for $895 guess they want it sold it looks clean inside and out.

I have my '83 Montauk up for sale in good overall condition with a fine running '86 Merc. I can't believe the amount of emails I get from people offering less than half of what I'm asking for it and they haven't even seen it.

There's blood on the streets and there are scavengers out there.

Don't give away your Whaler, re-power it.
