Default Old 1958? Alumacraft on Craigslist

Saw this today ...

https://spokane.craigslist.org/boa/d...801594651.html

Wonder if any of its rivets leak?

"Excellent" condition!!! Really, you couldn't get it out in the light of day, clean it, and then take a picture.

With the amount of dust on that, I'm going to bet it hasn't seen water in over 10 yrs.

I'm never surprised what some people think their "stuff" is worth.

Might be a good project boat if the price is right.

As "stuff" gets old, unused or forgotten, it should be depreciated down to next to nothing but it is called "vintage" to get more $s out of it.

The rig is worth exactly what someone forks over to change the name on the bill of sale.

It may ba $1, or it may be more.

Be safe

Cool looking old boat. When I was a kid that would have been considered the big boat at the resort!

It's worth what someone else is willing to pay for it, a saying I use almost everyday.

But what some people "think" it is worth....I place the blame directly at the feet of those 2 guys from Iowa. "American Pickers"

YEP! Some of those old boats were built like battleships. There people that will buy those old tugs and do a complete restoration with a era correct motor and hardware. The wife and I have fond memories of my dad'd 1963 Starcraft Jet with a Mercury Mark 55A, had a lot of fun with that old boat.

A family member has an Alumacraft that may be older than that and the steering wheel with console that is further back, with additional opening bench seat in the front. Funky boats. It's their waterskiing boat and it gets attention. An old Evinrude 33hp powers it.
