For the experienced one's! I have a '73 Tashmoo 16' that is mostly original in every aspect. I want to modify some things that would definitely set the boat apart from it's original condition. Most things are just to modernize for comfort and function to my personal satisfaction. In doing so, would I suffer in the value of my boat? I know that it's hard to justify because of so many considerations, but I want to try to avoid "shooting myself in the foot." Any feedback would help before I start retrofitting. Thanks!

Magnum, unless your Tashmoo is MINT you probably wont hurt the value as long as you can bring it back to original. Because the Tashmoo is a very rare Whaler you may want to hear from some of the older pro's on this.

As long as you are not making it a Newport I can't see adding a new cushion and a bimini, etc being detrimental. Jack Plate, etc are all easily converted back to OEM. I shy away from homemade platforms and consoles, etc unless they are easily discarded.
