you are not the only one confused Stu.

Luke you have had some offers - implies you are selling
what is the lowest you can go - implies you are buying?

If you have had some offers, then unless you believe they are time wasters or not representative of the market then they have told you what the market is willing to offer for your boat.

Now bearing in mind that your boat is devaluing the longer you keep it/older it gets, (lets say for the sake of argument 50 a month) and its probably costing you money to keep it somewhere, insure it etc (lets say another 50 a month). The question you need to ask then is will you be able to find someone willing to offer more than 300 higher than your best offer in 3 months time?

Especially considering the widely reported economic downturn.
