Bad time of the year?

Is it too late in the year to sell a boat?

Not too late, although it might not be the best time for a seller. Good time for buyers.

The fall season in Minnesota is not the best time for any type of open water gear or boats, but what do you have to lose. Advertise it and see what happens.

rappin jack, I'm sorry to hear about your daughters illness.

But if a buyer knows this you might not get what you want for the boat. Set a price that is fair and stick with it. Check out the ads to see what other boats (like yours) are selling for before you advertise.

You can always post a question here asking people what they think your boat is worth to start with. (Don't be afraid to ask)!

I wish you the best of luck!

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.
