    The pictures don't do this boat justice...this boat is the epitome of "mint". Jerm has this skiff in show room condition.

    That appears to be an awesome skiff and with the price of new Hells Bay starting in the 38K+ range, a mint skiff will continue to command top dollar..

    There are a few peeps here that bought skiffs that needed "minor" refurbs to make it mint, but "minor" refurbs are not cheap...

    I think a skiff in this condition (awesome) will test the prices commanded in the last few years.

    May be good news to anyone who owns a classic HB skiff in decent condition.

    Amazing skiff...has everything you would want. Light 2-stroke, side console, removed the carpets, etc. Not to mention the $5,000 trailer...

    Should sell fast.

    Wow that's an expensive 16' trailer, I just bought my Ram-lin all anodize aluminum for $3500 brand new.

    Good looking whip, looks very clean!

    Unless he got a discount, a stainless trailer custom fit for a HB can only be ordered from HB and is over $3500 last someone told me...not counting the color package.

    Wow didn't know that was a SS trailer, in all my years doing this I have only ever seen 1 SS trailer and it was fully custom out of a fab shop. Pretty Cool!

    Aluminum/stainless...whatever. And you may also be right that it might not be an alum/ss trailer, it could be a galvanized. In which case it's still over $2000 for one without the paint.

    That's my old skiff, I had the trailer built. It's paint over galvanized. Boat is super clean and one of the lightest 16's I've ever seen. Built very well back in 02.

    I was quoted $3200 for a new ramlin galvanized whipray trailer a couple weeks ago, the aluminum version was around $4200 if memory serves me correct. Both quotes had removable tongues.

    It was nice when Tyler had it, and it looks like it's gotten even better. I believe it originally was Jon Cave's boat.

    Maybe I'm crazy but I think that link is to an 11 year old 16 ft boat for over 20 grand

    You've already commented in the Hell's bay values thread about your disdain for Hell's bay owners and what they do with their skiffs...try not to track that attitude into here.

    Unless crap has just hit the fan....  Ram-Lin trailers are not that much..  My good friend just bought a Ram-Lin galvy trailer for $2200 last summer.. fact!  Add fancy "baked on" paint and I do not know what the cost would be...

    Due diligence is key on any skiff... HB or not! 

    Test drive.. inspect, before you buy... anything....
