Please do not direct questions pertaining to the value of your boat to this Association. We are not in the position to quote accurate appraisals due to the many variables such as market fluctuations, difficulty in assessing the condition of a boat through email descriptions and pictures, etc. However, with the diversity of knowledge of various Association members, we will be happy to answer any general questions if at all possible.
