    Re: Boats for sale

    the poor guy decided the cost of owning and maintains a boat simply wasn’t justified for 6 to 8 weeks fishing a year ..
    6 weeks of fishing is going to seem like a dream come true soon enough. Lots of closed areas, reduced catch limits, scarce bottom fish, taking the boat out will be just another scenic Sunday drive.
    Never say 'whoa' in the middle of a mud hole.

    Change a few words and you are describing how hunting is going.

    We've been casually considering something in that range as a multi purpose, cabin / lake water sports / fishing boat in the summer and the odd Fraser River fishing excursion.
    The salmon fishing changes aren't really a game changer but does make us question the purchase.
    On the other hand, if one can get a suitable vessel for a decent price …………………………….
    Spent all my working life in a Marine related business and have seen many of these up and downs in boat values due to all kinds of reasons.
    Used to see a marked increase in "stolen" or "sunk" or "burned" boats at those times.

    Re: Boats for sale

    My dad just sold our 17í Whaler in Campbell River this past weekend. Itís been used a lot less since I moved the wife and kids up to Fort Mac but we still managed a few good trips each summer, and of course dad used it whenever he fancied. With the regs the way they are and taking a quick look at the future of sport fishing in BC we figured we better sell it while we could. Sad to see it go but letís face it, a 17í Whaler is a fishing boat and with the way fishing is going in BC Iíd be better off taking my dad to Alaska each summer for a trip to a lodge. Add in the lack of pipeline support by the present provincial NDP government and if I could avoid spending any money in BC this year I would.

    Really haven't seen that much for sale. Don't know about people buying new boats. I guess if I decided to become a Alberta resident I wouldn't be keeping an ocean boat either.
