I am interested in buying a 1986 13' with a 28h.p. motor. Boat is in fair to better than fair condition. No bottom paint or hull repairs needed. Engine 1986, who knows, I'm going with not adding/including any value for it. Trailer, it will move the boat, galvanized w/out a ton of rust. Wood seat/console needs to be refinished. Hull needs a good compounding, wax and a few blemish repairs made. My question is, what is a reasonable price for the hull in condition discribed? There are plenty of them for sale I know......

Wow. Confirms my need to ask the question. Sounds high to me but that is why I'm asking for help...

You might scan Boattraderonline.com. Lots of various 13's in all sorts of condition, and the prices might give you a guideline. I am finishing the wood restoration on my 1973 13 Sport, and I've buffed out the hull, but it's still got dings, scratches, and some screw holes to fill, and an 18x12 inch repair on the stern side at the rear that was not matched properly. Far from a perfect 10, I'd give mine a 7.. But, I wouldn't take less than $3,500 for mine - with a '97 Evinrude 30, and a re-done Tee-Nee 1000-lb trailer.

That sounds high to you for an 86? Watch E-Bay and see what you will get for under $2k in a 13' Whaler. $2k would be a great deal.
