    Like I said earlier, you will get more selling the engine separately and hope to sell the rest later.
    I've been through this before with a much newer boat, so I have to agree. Sold my Campion Explorer a few years ago with a 20hrs old current year 115 Merc 4 stroke on it and didn't even recover what I and insurance had just paid for the motor a month previous.

    I put a new 200 ETEC ($18k) on my 1982 18' Sidewinder that I've owned for 35 years, but I would be lucky to get $12k for it. It's never going to be worth much more , even though it is in great shape.
