    go to www.nada.com, then search CONSUMER, then boats. It's hard to use NADA to price boats, but it will get you in the ball park.

    Hey Pinto. I think you should buy a new tracker of something like that. Anything is fine really as long as it's seaworthy and has an engine:roll_eyes: Don't wanna make you paddle ya know.

    I did not get the length of the boat, so I'm guessing 16ft. If everything is "ship shape" dents, leaks, transom, floor, seats, wheels/tires, bearings, spindle, axle, wiring, reciever neck, prop, carberators, coils, fuel lines, oil, syncros and that stuff, I'd guess $1,000. or less. The boat is 38 and I don't know about the motor or trailer. Just my opinion.

    I have purchased a few in that age group for that price. Watch them tho many have lots of dry rot. Motors are often soft too.

    Thank you shortshank It does'nt say how many feet but I'd say 14 or 16ft. And the motor is 35hp. Thank you again!
