I'm thinking about downsizing one of my boats- (20ft all weld mod-v, no motor) and using that money to get a bit smaller boat, maybe a 15 or 16ft. I'm looking to use the money from the sale of boat one to get second boat and some more gear. What do yall think I can get for the 20ft boat so I can get a good size boat plus gear?

Every boat owner I ever met wishes he/she had bought a bigger boat. Get a 90 HP 4 cyle motor and put it on the 20 footer

It's a center console and I want to get something a little better for hunting out of. That console gets in the way and I usually hunt me and two buddies out of it. Not against keeping the same length but need a better layout.

It's hard to say without seeing the boat I guess. 20 ft all weld is worth good money. So no moter but on a trailer in decent condition I'd say 3 or 4K

You know boats are not good investments... your never going to get ahead even with the downsize.

imo, you will have a difficult time selling for much of anything, to rig a 20' out the way it should be is quite expensive.

Gotta answer these questions first... How far of a ride do yall have to the blind? Is it open water? River? Mud?

What is the width of the 20ft and who makes it?

Duracraft 2060. Do a bit of everything, but no mud and nothing where we're going 30 miles up a river.

30 miles? if i was traveling 30 miles, i would be driving a console with a 90hp...or find a closer ramp lol

but just from the little research i have done you would get from 3-5k depending on the year the boat is...

IMO, i would keep it...slap a big motor on there, and find you a little 16ft with a 25 for about 3-4K

I would not get into a smaller boat either if you are that far. Can you ditch the boat and get out and hunt once to your spot? If shallow water hunting thats what I would do...and in fact thats how we roll (hunt) But if your in deeper water then I see the need to stay in the boat.

I'm not going that far. I'd say max I go is 10 miles, and that's when I'm hunting somewhere in the bay. And it does have a center console.

So in truth I was looking at buying this boat, I figured the motor was bum and as it turns out it's in decentish working condition. Got a freaking fantastic deal on the two together, though I'm probably going to swap the motor for something a little smaller and a bit newer. Now the next month will be spent turning this thing in to a duck hunting machine.....
