          For $15,000 you could afford to re-power.

            For $15K you could afford to do just about anything, if the basic hull is sound.

              My stars what a price. That's what - about a 5k move to the West Coast ?

                Speaking of rebuild - we have not gone as far as one other sector - since they just do not make any more Norseman bush planes and a few other tried and true designs, there is a practice in that business such that if you happen to lay your hands on the serial number plate - it is actually all you need to create a legal rebuild. This comes in part because of regulations making new planes much more expensive than rebuilt ones.

                So if manufacturing bigger boats ever gets any more impossible and if I ever have to part my boat out - maybe I should saw out the serial number and save it for my grandchildren.

                  Why re-power?

                  EH 700s with 800 hours.

                  If you can verify that is the correct hr meter reading; they are barely loosened up It will go 15 kts and likely consume 15 gph at that speed

                    Owner sure isn't building value with his name choice (Yugo of the Sea) is he? No wonder Bayliners get a bad rap- if a owner paints that on the transom!

                    Machines depreciate in time that's for sure- go ask owner of a 1987 Ferrari or Cadillac it's current value vs original.

                    He obviously wants to sell her quick, and like the old saying goes "the only difference between For Sale and Sold is solely the price".

                    Personally If I was selling her, I would remove the name. If I was the owner I would DONATE it!!!

                    A broker here in Ft. Lauderdale recently asked me to come look at a yacht he had listed-it's name is "Hard Life"...the first thing I told him to do was to CHANGE THE NAME to "Easy Life".. as nobody want's to buy a used boat that implies a life of hard wear and tear do they?

                      I remember this Boat being for sale in late 2009 when I was looking at 38s. I think it was priced at $60,000, and my thoughts on the name was the owner must of had a bad experience with the boat. Everyone that was around when Yugos were on the roads know their reputation, change the name & increase the price may generate some interest. Boats priced way low scare me when I know nothing of their history.

                        15 gallons per HOUR is that correct ?

                          1 mpg would be about right.

                          But I know personally if you want economy you can get over 4 mpg with this boat. I suspect it could be 5 on a steady run.

                          You just have to go sloooow.

                            I like the sound of that better but I am now totally confused but that does not take much :sorrow:

                            So I am travelling at 15 knots or 17 miles per hour.

                            So in one hour I am going 17 miles.

                            1 mile per gallon which works out to 17 gallons per hour x $5.20 per gallon = $88.40 per hour.

                            17 miles / 1 mpg =17 gallons x $5.20 per gallon = $88.40 per hour

                            But if I go sloooow I might get 5 mpg so

                            17 miles / 5 mpg = 3.4 gallons = $17.68 per ? time

                            So Whos on first and whats on second :worth

                              I was going through a boating magazine the other day; I could not believe what they get for new 38' and up yachts, near $500,000 and up base price.
