What are you all hiding out there thinking of selling?
You might need to be patient.
Ribcraft 4.8s, I suspect like a lot of brands fall into two camps, older boat in need of overhaul with faded tubes (tend to be single jockey) on basic trailer, or potentially older boat, but well maintained with dual-jockey with 2-stroke or 4-stroke engine and A frame on well-maintained road-legal trailer that will still command a premium. Discerning owners will wait until the spring when prices rise.
You do come across newer outfits during the summer where the owner has up-sized to a larger boat. In my experience there aren't many bargains to be had these days.
If you want to generate more interest state your top-budget in order to coax potential owners to consider selling, otherwise your magnet fishing. Just an observation.
