Default Anyone Ever Buy Their Old Boat Back?

I just did...

Two years ago, I sold a Fountain 31 TE that I had found here on THT. Missed the boat from the time it left the driveway.

The owner took great care of it while it spent a few years away from me and I was thrilled today when I took ownership, again.

The two best days for me was buying it....and buying it back.

Ok, so how much did you sell it for and how much did you buy it back for? Same engine, electronics, etc?

Yup, bought a SeaCraft 23 in 2001 and sold it in 2008. Bought it back in 2010....then sold it again. My wife is going to have me committed I fear.

Sold it for 43k

Bought it back for 45k

No additions by prior owner. Maybe 100 hrs added by him.

I bought my second boat from a life long friend. I sold it years later to another classmate from high school. He just sold it to my life long friend. I friggin can not wait to be back onboard as that boat leaves Morehead City. It is a 23' 1979 Robalo I restored in 2000. I wish I owned it today.
