As a point of reference, I bought an 89 last summer for $8,000 from orig owner. I thought I got a good deal. I got the tandem axle trailer with it and new tires thrown in on the deal. My interior was different then yours though. I don't have the cup holders in the motor cover and the back seat is the older looking straight bench. Overall, yours looks like it's in better shape and the asking price seems justified.
On a side note, how is your bimini folded back on the transom like that?

There is a aluminum track right above the grab rail that allows it to slide back. I dont see many on other boats so I am not sure if the PO installed it?

I tried to load pics but I am getting a upload error right now.

I agree with both of these. You shouldn't be talked into taking less than $8k for that boat in that condition during negotiations. I would have paid it when I was looking.

Nice ad, looks good to me. Trailer pic, storage pic, nice interior, but maybe replace one of the dash pics with a picture of it having the nicer of your two covers on. Bases covered.

Edited for clarity.
