You have to set a starting price for this skiff! If it was a rare or very high desire skiff you may do better taking offers, but this is a common skiff and all you will get is low ball offers IMO.
The baddest Carolina Skiff I have seen to date went for $6,400 a few months ago. You know the one! If I were you I would be looking to buy that Tarrapin Skiff! Take the money you are getting for a gift, finance the rest and when your skiff sells put that towards to new boat. If you are looking for something around 10k that boat is a deal and won't last until you sell yours.
I was just a tad late on that 2001 Hells Bay 16' Waterman. To me the essence of everything I want in a skiff! I'm going to building a very simple skinny wood skiff like "The Grass Slipper", but when I find a similar Waterman like that, the trigger we be pulled before my wife knows what what hit her!
