Sell in Michigan or Florida?

I have a 1985 MacGregor 25 that i would like to sell, and I want to try to get the best price I can for it. I'm in Florida for a bit, but the boat's in Michigan. Which of these two bad economies should I try to sell it in, or somewhere in the middle? Is there some broker I could leave it with to do it? I also have some upgrades, like a norcold fridge, 2 300 watt solar panels, and a huge battery bank. Should I sell these separately or as part of the package? What makes the most sense? Thanks, wise people, for your thoughts.
Jack

I don't think there will be too many people up north that feel like going sailing right now, so if you want to sell it this winter I would think Florida would be your best bet. However, if you have a trailer that may not be as important.
People may be willing to drive to pick it up. On the other hand, they may not want to haul a boat trailer through the snow.
That size boat I would try to sell myself on The Sailboat Trader or Craig's list or similar. Don't tell my broker friends I said that.
Good luck.
