Found on CL:
1984 Young brothers 30 ft lobster boat
That ones is still for sale huh. I remember the price being up and down a few times, guess he is still looking for the right buyer. I still miss my 30 yb, some days, great little hulls.
I went and looked at this one. Nice little boat. Agreed on a price and then seller backed out and is waiting for more money. I also found out there is some storage owed on the boat. And there is a bit of a back story. Too bad, I was really wanting to rehab this one.
Looks like a Ford 300 straight six? Marinized?
Anybody got 16K K could have? Great home for a 6BT.
As Mike said yes it is. Not a gas fan but that was one of the best gas marine engines ever built. Torqie little bastards!
I just thought they were hard to get parts for.
I had a F150 - 1/2 ton - with one. Loved the engine. I had 22 totes of fish plus ice in it. Do the math. Went 84 miles on the highway and didnt miss a beat.
good rehab platform......I wonder how wet, if at all, the upper cores are ?
They are hard to get parts for. My service manager has one in the first 29 dyer ever built.
Unfortunately I saw it listed for 14,000 on facebook, I peaked some interest. I went and looked at the boat, made an offer and then the seller wanted to hold out for more money. I then saw it listed for 16,000 on craigslist. I asked the seller about the price and the response was they were looking for 15,500. Well that is more than I saw it listed for!! If my memory is correct the same thing happened over the summer. It was listed for 16,000 and then It was listed for 20,000 a few days later........ Interesting sale tactic....
I contacted the seller and they don't seem to know much about the boat as they said it was passed down . I asked if there were storage fees to add to the price and they said no unless I wanted to keep it where it was for the rest of the winter . I am here in Jersey so was wondering if this a total refit ? I 'm not worried about looks just that it can be made solid .
I heard there was storage owed but I could be wrong.
Has this boat been for sale for a while ?
I think I noticed it for sale at the beginning of the summer but I could be wrong.
Strange that it hasn't sold already ...........
My opinion is to "never look a gift horse in the mouth" . For someone to hold out for another thousand or two thousand dollars is just poor business sense. Some people just seem to be in denial as to the worth of things. Something is only worth what someone else is willing to pay.
That is the absolute truth.
Make a decent offer. If it is not accepted, walk away. If the buyer plays things out for a while, and calls you back to accept your offer, then in my opinion, it is your time to play. Offer a thousand less , and be polite and walk.
Sellers who ask a price, and then decide they want to raise it higher are Jack Balls.
I had a deal on a house which the owner agreed to. At the last minute, he decided to try and raise the agreed upon price. I called his bluff, and walked. I figure it cost him about 7 grand. Cost me $1500. It was worth every penny to see him so pissed off. Just my opinion on dealing with Jack Balls.
And that may be the case on why he is still sitting on it. There is a nice 30 South Shore in South Portland, Maine I was trying to find out what the guy wanted for it. I was honest and said I didn't have any money to offer, but wanted a goal to shoot for, and a number to report to my CFO (wife). He refused to give a number. I didn't get pushy and walked away on good terms but in the back of my head I was like "how does that help you sell a boat".
Well it's offline, we'll see if someone bought it or if it is going to be listed for 20k tomorrow.
There is an ass for every seat.
As sure as the sun will come up tomorrow morning, if you buy this boat at a good price, there will be a much better deal on a much better version of this boat for sale next week.
It is an addiction. We must come to terms with it. I have not joined the program as of yet.
