Trying to figure out what my used Aire raft is worth
I have poked around in the forum reading older posts, but still don't really know what to sell my raft for, so am hoping you all can share some advice. The challenge is that the boat is pretty old (1995 or 1996), but the gear is in great condition and is high end, or at least was at the time I bought it!
It is a 14' Aire (143R), set up for both paddling with footcups and for rowing. Bought it when I retired from guiding, and after taking it down rivers like the Middle Fork of the Salmon, the Grand Canyon, Rogue, etc. I really have not used it much for the past 10 years after getting in to kayaking. Excellent condition, no patches, holds air for days, new floor aircell.
Gear: Cambridge Welding steel breakdown frame, Cambridge Welding full size dry box, 4 Sawyer MX composite one piece counterbalanced oars. Large Gott cooler in good shape, home made wood floorboard.
I would prefer to sell the package to keep it simple, since if I get another boat it will be a cataraft. But I would be interested in your thoughts on the value of the boat alone. I appreciate any thoughts you have-Thanks!
