Why do fishermen think they should get full retail for their 10 year old boat?

The frame itself lists for about $1,500, the oars another $1K, the boat for about another $3K plus the upgraded bottom, PFDs, pump, some more extras and trailer. Its not a steal but its not ridiculously overpriced for someone in the market who would go into DRE and throw down the $$.

I'm gonna have to agree with Andy on this one...cause that frame with the casting decks is much closer to $3000.00 than $1,500.00. And why does the boat look so friggin shiny?? Is it urethaned ??

If that's pricing representative of the market, then we got our first boat, fully rigged, plus trailer, at a criminal price. I think the price is going to be tough to get, or have mercy on the person that pays it.

I completely disagree. Now, I don't know what you paid for yours...but look at it like this...

New NRS Otter - $3,275.00
DRE Fish Frame w/ decks - $2,800 (conservative!)
Trailer - $1,200 (guess)
3 x MX-FG Oars w/Dynelite Blades - $1,000+
Anchor/Rope/PFD's/etc - $200+

Retail - AT LEAST $8,475.00 not including tax !

Still think it's not a decent deal?? That thing is practically brand new!

Oh, and I forgot the boat was upgraded so the retail price is probably pretty off on that boat...

But is it brand new, or is it 8 years old? 10-15% off retail is typical package discount off a brand new boat. Would otter be your first choice?

so why is that frame worth $2800 but this cat and frame is offered up for $1750. even if you subtract $750 for the tubes that leaves $1K for this frame vs the $2800 conservative estimate of the otter.

Cataraft with DRE fishing frame - Mountain Buzz Gear Swap

I know its a bit smaller but definately not $1800 smaller ...

"This pontoon boat can hold 250 pounds of weight. This boat is awsome to take down the river or on a lake."

What kind of river did the guy mean? The lazy river? LMAO

Who buys a cat for fishing?

delete complete ignorant remark questioning the intelligence of anyone fishing from a cat.

No place to throw your beer cans. Drop your fly box and it's gone. Only one fishing stand. 12 foot cat = a lot less frame.

Who fishes from a cat?

Is my prejudice showing?
