Default Eastside driftboat value question(pics added)

Well not sure if this is right place to post this question?? I have a 1972 16' Eastside wooden driftboat with Eastside trailer i'm having to put up for sale and wondering what value might be. No rot, has been stored under cover or in my case a garage. Could use revarnishing but is very solid as is. Comes with oars, original fishbox and pyramid anchor. Trailer has surface rust on fenders but is solid. Pulls real good. Has some weird original looking rims though.

Hard to say without pics, but one thing is certain, you have a piece of drift boat history there. And the original trailer too !
Eastside was sold to a firm that is operating out of Montana, I think.
Do a search on Yellowstone Drifter Boat Company.
I would contact them, they may want to acquire and restore it.

Good luck !

I'll see if I can take pics tommorrow. I think it's called a Rapid Robert style of drifter as bow is wide and stern is pointed. Looks kinda backward going downriver...

Nice looking boat ! Great job keeping it in that condition.
I sent Yellowstone a link.

It's been said that these days the best market for woodies is on the far east side. (Rockies)
