First lets suspend our personal checking account balance. Just get yourself in a mental place where you are gonna spend Over 100K for a boat. A Cobra, Sportsman, barrel back.. All boats worth over 100K. And lets say you cant find the one you want. You have a budget set, and so the boat, the pattern, history, and fact its one of a very few. Then the purchase of the boat is the base where it all starts. In the end, the owner will have a $150K rare race boat. And whats so different than a Cobra, or other model? Actually, this is smarter since its so rare.
Add in the fact that if the purchaser is a restorer, or DIYer, its another smart play. Add to that, we are in a sort of inflation period that no one will talk about yet, its a smart use of money now.
On top of this great news, the passion of classic boating is also given a huge boost of confidence. This sort of thing is critical to our future. It helps restorers, parts being reproduced, and every aspect of the culture.
By the way, go out there and try and find any boat, new, used plastic garbage cans. And you will be shocked. A simple pontoon can be 50K plus, a 20 ft center console, 60K+, And they are worth 50% of that the next week after you buy them. This little racer, is and all little racers are now worth far more than they were two days ago. So, thats art. And thats good for all of us. Thankyou to the two ebay fighters for this!
