Looking for help determining approx value of our custom 13 ft Whaler skiff. Hull from 65, powered by 89 Evinrude 2 cycle. Front deck storage, fuel cells. Rear deck dry storage, live well. Dual batteries, LED, lighting in all compartments. All work completed with Awlgrip epoxies and closed cell foam composite. I know i'll probably be shunned by the Whaler purists out there, but this is a neat little boat for somebody who likes getting back in the shallows. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I'd say somewhere between $4,000 - $6,000.

The motor isn't worth more than a couple hundred bucks, the trailer around $500, and i'd imagine the hull is worth $2,500 - $4,500.

Hope this helps.

Man I like what you did with it. I had one many years ago. Mine had a 35 Johnson on it. I used to fish local bass tournaments. It had wood seats and console I think
Wish I had kept it. Yea $4,000 is my guess. Needs a new motor

Mike,

First let me say it looks like you put a lot of time, money and effort into the boat, so my apologies for sounding negative. Rarely can you come close to recouping a Whaler refit unless you go 100% original.

You are going to have trouble attracting both the flats boat buyer and the guy looking for a classic Whaler, so you may end up having to accept a number well below the mentioned range.

Aside from the previously-mentioned engine issue, for me the high profile console doesn't work.
