    That’s a pretty vague question, but if you aren’t going to use the molds, you might as well get something for them.

    Even if in perfect condition, the value largely depends on what it is the mold for. If it is a stand-out performer, it is worth much more than something that has no market.

    Depends on your market... some would destroy or park out on a farm before they let someone else set up in competition especially if it's a "cheap" sale. Essentially they can be worth nothing or have a negative value if out of date or with no market for the product and storage costing. If storage can be at no cost plenty have just built another when someone approached. If you're fully out of that & not wanting to ever use may as well get what you can.

    Its a nice looking mold, the boats run extremely well in our area its a desirable size, and no one has ever said the boats are not attractive. ,, I would sell it or lease it under the condition I stay involved. I have one partially finished Hull that will be part of the deal as well. I have a mobility issue that so far keeps me form building the boat,, "Don't get old" is what my Dad always told me !!!

    I will not allow the mold to sit un- productive.
