Hi, I have an 88 16 that I want to put up for sale and really am uncertain what to ask. Here is a list of what it has, perhaps knowledgeable people can suggest an asking price.

Thanks for your help, The boat is in New Jersey.

As I said it's an 88
The hulls are rock solid. Not a single extra hole ever drilled. No access ports or anything. No soft spots anywhere.
All new standing rigging, 5/32"
4 new trap wires, 2 with fiddle adjusting blocks. 2 with the usual stop blocks.
EPO rudders
6 to 1 downhaul w/ronstan cleat
hobie toy box and a spare sewer pipe tube
All cleats except mainsheet upgraded to Ronstan carbon type, very smooth.
Harken 6/1 mainsheet blocks with Harken cleat
Hobie HotStick with a cork ball handle.
Aussie forestay setup.
New rudder pins
gooseneck bearing
new tiller connection kit installed
Brand new Tramp, not Hobie Cat but from a company called 'Atomic Tarp'
Every bit of running rigging replaced with Samson cordage.
Comptip mast.
Trentec jib cars with harken carbo singles for jib sheeting.
Nice trailer too. Large enough to handle an 18 foot cat should someone upgrade. Trailer has new rims, wheels and hubs. mast raising pole with winch .
I also have a spare mast, comptip, and a complete frame with all corner castings and tracks, pulleys etc. that I picked up along the way some time ago.
Not looking for every last dime but a price to make the buyer and seller comfortable.
Thanks
Thanks,

wow that sounds like you have all the bells and whistles on it! with all of the upgrades and great parts on it, i think a reasonable asking price is around $3000, especially considering the extra mast and redone trailer.

Sounds like a 3k boat to me, and considering everything on there, the guy probably visits these sites, I did see a similar boat posted with a lot of similar features for $2300 and it sold pretty quick. You may be able to buy a boat and make the upgrades for less, but it would be close if not at all.
I didn't see anything about the sails though, original? and what shape are they in?

Thanks guys. I moved the text with minor changes to the 'for sale' section. I put $2100. but probably won't haggle. I'll see what happens..

Much depends on the condition of the sail. Is it the original? How would you rank it 0-10 (0 - blown, 5 - still somewhat crisp, 7 - and up good to race, 10 - like new).

Then is the overall looks. Picture?
