    Anyone know of any pointers to get my boat sold?? I've had it on craigslist, and some other sites.. it's a 2009 Carolina Skiff with about 40-45 hours on it, here's the link from here..

    I'm willing to go down to 20k.... Is that not reasonable?? Am I asking too much? Any other pointers??

    Trying to get into an Ankona over here ;D

    yea I tried the NADA route and my price is well below (about 2k) what I should be asking.. Thats why I'm puzzled by this. I talked to a guy that would broker it for me but they take 10% (yea I said 10) of the sales price

    Its a bigger boat. Not many buyers here on microskiff interested in something that large. I also think you are up against the economy and gas prices.

    THT does charge but its not much and worth it to get it out there, especially if it gets the sale. Another option is to just blanket Craigslist with ads in a bunch of different areas.
