Insurance value

    What is a complete Old Town sail rig worth for insurance purposes? Leeboards, rudder, mast, spars, sail and hardware. Also a pair of leathered oars and oar locks. Assuming it's ready to use. Ballpark dollar figure? Not including the canoe - I can figure that part.

    Old Town doesn't sell these any more so the exact replacement value is not clear. The price list at list.htm#Sail Rig shows "Sail Rig Custom designed $1200-$2500" and lists a pair of oars with sewn on leathers for about $350 plus $229 for polished oarlocks. I would guess that about $3000 could get you a reasonable new replacement but you could probably find all of this used for about $500 on eBay if you are not in a hurry. Please reply here if you get some better numbers or suggestions.

    The unique "1904 Old Town" discussed in the thread at is currently at $305 on eBay so you may be able to get a bit more since yours has a sailing rig. I thought that you offered a similar canoe in the thread at for $7500.
