Hey there, Iv been reading the forums for awhile now, Helped me alot in buying a boat! Now its time to sale my 65 Howard VDrive. I was wondering what you guys think I should ask for it? It has a Ford 390 FE with a casale. Seats were recently redone, but the gel coat has some scratches and rub marks from a dock. Boat ran great last summer, I just finally talked my dad into saleing me his Hondo. Dont need 2 flattys! From what I was told the motors stock. Trailers a dual axle and stout built. Doubt its the one the boat came with. Any help would be greatly appreciated! http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii136/coltschlumbohm/GetAttachment.jpg

Good looking float  ;D

I agree with the $8000 range, but you might end up setting on it for a while to find the right buyer.  There are a lot of boats out there for $4000-$6000 with more than stock engines.

The paint is like that on both sides of the engine conpartment. The guy before me ran dry headers before the logs and melted the paint and a bunch of wire loom.. Talk about a mess to get melted plastic off of everything. Im not sure what to ask yet.. I think 8 would be steep because the gel isnt in the best shape. Maybe 5?

Close your mouth and think about what I wrote before you go spouting off!

I LIKE THE ROGERS HE HAS but "I" wouldnt buy it because it has a ford. There are a TON of people on here that love fords and have commented how nice of a boat he has there! Hence the "Good Luck on the Sale" Part!

Get over yourself and quit attacking me in other people threads.....

We've been through this before, you have something to say to me....Let me know!

You like his Rogers huh? I must be getting old because I thought it was a Howard? You my friend need to think before you type, it's like me saying "Hey nice Chevy, too bad it's in a Sanger" see what I'm saying here student? Just think a bit before you type and you'll save yourself a lot of time typing out responses like the ones you have so far in this thread. I am not, and don't attack you in this, or any other thread, I made a comment to your post, get over yourself sweetheart.
