I agree, Ray. I find that I am inclined to consistently value these boats more than the market does. I expected that Hawk to get some bidders. Cheaper boats seem to clear the market faster than boats that are more expensive but represent better value. Someone who buys a boat like that Hawk and goes through the effort and expense of painting, reupholstering and adding a three thousand dollar motor is going to take a beating when they sell it.




I spent 30 years on and off drag racing Harley Davidson Motorcycles, I always had the mindset that I was buying the experience and if I couldn't afford to "ride my money out of it" I shouldn't do it (but I like fast cars too, what are you going to do?) B)

I would not be surprised if there is a reserve above the starting bid number. What does surprise me is how low the price remains on these boats.[/quote]

I think as the old Woody's get more and more expensive to restore we will see these boats go up in value.

Go for it, I think it would do fine with the 2.3, weight might slow it down a bit but I don't think bad enough to be an issue.

That '58 Hawk in Virginia is a beautiful boat. It will be interesting to see what it sells for. I find it strange that the seller wrote that the grease stain on the back of the seat will come out. Why not just clean it off before taking the photo instead?
