I don't know the new owners are as dedicated as Dave was (In fact I doubt it) and as for resale: it is more a ecomically issue than a brand issue. Those days it is hard to sell anything. One good advice if you go for thr Ribquest: make sure you put a 150hp on it. It is after all a heavily built boat and these extra horses will give more pleasure. Hope this helps
Agreed, sub 150 is just not enough.... eh TT
Seriously though, i see what youre saying but Tony Ts 6.3 with commercial tubes is great for cruising and that only has a 140 4stroke. Though i personally would want the punch of more horses being stroked twice when in the rough, just for responsiveness really.
