    Default Barn Find

    I need a little info. Need to know what its worth! Its a 18ft jet he said it was Stinger? set up for a 455. He has a pair of Hardin manfolds for a BBC, jaccuzzi pump,and tralier. He had new floor put in 2yrs.ago, interior is all there and in nice shape,Dirty but nice and all there,hull is good shape needs paint but that dont bother me to much,im a bodyman by traid! Hes asking 1000.00 but i think 800.00 will buy it! Ive never owened a jet before dont know much about them.Will a BBC bolt in? Never heard of a Stinger,anybody here have one? Oh ya it has no motor!
    Thanks in advance for any info.
    Jason

    I buy a lot of them, I don't know where in the country you're at and that will make a difference on what it's worth. Here in So Cal it's worth about $200 - $300. IMO

    What about the trailer? Single, dual axle?....Good condition?...Tires? Wheels?...You have to look at the big picture. Jet pump? What kind, model?? And as mentioned, where is it?..............Ray

    Ray, I was looking at the big picture. As I wrote before, I buy a lot of them. I'm gonna guess and say that I have bought easily over 20 jet boats in the past three years. I know what every (stock) part's market value is at any point in time of the year. The most I have ever got for a stock Jacuzzi is $100, but usually it's about $40. Just sold a set of BBC logs, $167.50. Single axle trailer about $100, tandem about $250. Used gauges $20 - $40. Interior, worthless. Don't forget it's about $68 now to dump that hull legaly...
