4.Consider the resale value, but in moderation. If you love this boat and plan to keep her for a while, doing a refit to maximize your enjoyment is a fine idea. But if you think that adding a $100,000 refit to a boat worth $200,000 is going to make her worth $300,000, you need a lesson in Reality Math. It would be like adding a $10,000 paint job to an old Ford Pinto. It just makes it a shiny old Ford Pinto, not a Ferrari. Do it because you love the boat, not because you plan to flip it.
Sure you catch a few fish. And your cockpit team does the job as well as any you’ve ever seen. Maybe it’s time to put your boat up against the best in the world on the fishing tournament circuit. See how to do it here. ▶
