Appraising a 1983 Outrage 18

It's been a good few years with my Outrage 18, but I will be moving back to California in June from Florida. At this point I think it is going to be easier to sell my boat instead of moving it across the country.
What I have:
1983 Outrage 18 with a 1999 Suzuki DT140 (2-stroke, 140 HP)
The motor has recently been in for service and a spark check and compression check has come back great. The mechanic has told me the outboard runs excellent.
I had a marine surveyor do a full report on the boat when I bought it 2 years ago and I have the PDF of that report.
I had the basic plastic swivel seats on the boat, and just recently both of them have cracked to the point where they broke and I do not have them on the boat anymore.

Your Outrage will go for considerably more $ in CA than FLA, Outrage 18's are hard to come by in California. If you plan to stay in boating, bring your boat with you.

Thank you for the replies. Yes, that is mine on ebay right now. I was just going to put it on there to get a feel for how much it is really worth. I cannot believe the interest I have gotten on it. The ad has 75 watchers right now.
Right now I have a buyer through craigslist, so we'll see how that goes. He has a check on the way, but I won't say it's sold until it is out of my garage.
I plan to stay in boating, but I am going to really shop boats this time around. I love the classic whaler, but I think I want to move up to something bigger. I am so paranoid about owning an '83 whaler. I am always hoping the fuel tank is ok, that the transom is still solid, etc. I haven't had any reason to think there is something wrong, but paranoia is great amongst me when I have a boat. hah
