    Default How much $ should I ask for my inflatable i have outgrown

    I have a Seabo by Silver Marine inflatable from Sam's club a few years old that my family has outgrown we used it for lake fishing here in town maybe two dozen times if that. It is 9'1" by 4'11" rated for up to 9.9hp and has a wood floor with inflatable keel, and I believe it has the metal rings for keeping it in davits or however you want to say that (I need to get it out and check). foot pump, pressure gauge, oars, carry bag, repair kit (never used) etc... that came with it. I would say it is in good shape no tears or patches ever. We took it out one time last year three kids is just too many for a 9' boat to be comfortable so we want to sell it and find a canoe or scanoe for the lakes around town.. So please let me know what I should ask for this when i get it out and set up for sale shortly as I don't want to sell myself short thanks.

    They show up on CL in the $500 range all the time for just the raft. I suspect that it would not last long at that price.

    I just bought an Alaska series Gary king 9'6" w/ the optional aluminum floor its being built and I get it in June. I couldn't be more tickled BTW although I only have 7'4" on my roof behind my mast and radar so it's gonna have to hang over the back of the house I just couldn't bring myself to go w/ the smaller one cause I'd sink the buster when I hung the 15hp 4-stroke lol.(again I'd rather go w/ the 2-stroke but the enviro-folks that have to throw their weight around won't let me use it in the Kenai if I so choose)
    I don't know why I'm rambling on about this on your thread asking how much you should sell your raft for. I'm just excited thats all. I got it for 1/2 price at the sports show in Wasilla.
    If your raft is decent sell it for 200-400 bucks. If you can afford it, donate it to a family or so a veteran that can't afford one so they can do some fishin

    Good advice as usual about donating it. I appreciate what you bring to the forum. And congrats on the new purchase. I too would love a new dink and I am looking for one for my CD 22 (no caddi like what you cruise around with). And I wish I had a 15 hp 4 stroke for dipping. In fact, if you need a Kenai dipping partner, you can stay in my RV and I'll bring my zodiak and be your net man if we can split the bad boys up fair....

    Just when I thought my thread was dead. I put it on CL for $500 and will see if I get any bites. I think I'm not quite to that donating boats stage of life yet or I wouldn't need to sell a dinghy just to buy a canoe . Someday though, someday
