So I picked up a 14 ft. Hews Craft River Runner (unknown year) and trailer with a 25 horse Johnson for $500 dollars, with oars and oar locks. It has a steering console and all the parts are in place just not attatched. The boat is in fairly sound shape but needs a new transom soon. The guy has had it just setting in his yard in the weather so I made him an offer and he took it. Basicly I take the boat home and see if I can get it in good running shape before I pay him anything, If I find it needs to much work I take it back to him and he'll let it set again. I was on the boat once several years ago and it ran fine but its been sitting ever since. I cant seem to find any info on a boat like this and could use any insight you guys have, like what is a boat like this worth and what kind of resale value could I get out of it with everything running and id decent shape.I figure its going to take about another 500 to get it in decent shape if I do the work.
Any comments on this boat would be greatly appriciated. I can probobly get some pics up if that would help.
