    Winter is here and since I used my boat 6-7 times in the past two years I'm thinking of selling the boat and I'm looking for advice on the value of it:

    2006 18 1/2 Weldcaft DV186
    2015 Suzuki DF 140 under 50 hours
    2005 15hp Merc 4 stroke kicker
    Marine Radio
    Hummingbird fish finder
    Anchor 150' Rope no chain
    (2) Scottie 1106 Downriggers bought last year
    Dual batteries w/ Perko switch
    Suspension seats (spring loaded)
    30" Jump seats w/storage
    EZ loader single axle trailer
    Stand up canvas
    Tops out at 40mph and averages 50 miles on12 Gallons

    Yes, were planning on moving back to the Island and I'll be looking for an overnighter, hardtop glass boat.

    Sent a pm, but I think 36k wouldn't be a bad place to start asking. Nice boat with lots of power!

    Well, you can get a similar sized Hewes with hardtop, pod, 150 Yammy for $46k....
    You have a great rig there sans the H-bird.

    Might be U.S. $ or used if you could find one. I might hang on to mine and investigate putting a 1/2 hardtop on it. I don't think I could find another in as good shape and I did dial it in the way I wanted.....

    Does it have side windows and a drop back canvas cover to the transom? And canvas cover for trailering?

    Nope, it has Vinyl side windows and zip up panels that end at the jump seats. No travel cover either. I tow it on short trips with the top up but if I was traveling any distance I would drop the tops.

    Thanks for all the feedback, I just sold the boat for 32k. Our house sold and were moving back to our place in Courtenay March 1st and the new (used) boat hunt will start again!

    Well, the buyer hasn't picked up the boat yet so I'm tempted to hang on to her. The biggest factor in selling it before we move down is nowhere to store it since were moving into a condo.

    Alumaman, did you end up keeping or selling the boat? If you sell it and get a fibreglass boat, are you going to change your profile name to fibraman?

    Thats funny, I was actually thinking the same thing. I sold the boat and haven't looked at a new one yet so I'll hold off on the name change. Fiberman, no beer on board but all the bran flakes and metamucil you want.
