Pricing a Nesting Dinghy For Sale

I was wondering if anybody here could suggest a price range to list my 11' Shellback nesting Dinghy at? It came with my sailboat which was launched in 2006 so I assume it has about 10 years of lite use on it though the registration dates its to the late 80s when the Keel was laid on my big sailboat. Everything is in good working as far as I can tell condition but I can't seem to find where the bolts to join the two halves are not that they would be a big deal to replace. Its taking up a little space in my garage but I not in a huge hurry to sell it. I live in Harrisburg PA but am down at my sailboat in Baltimore most weekends so I figure the market is most likely the upper Chesapeake. Any idea what a fair asking price would be?

The only idea would be to find out how much a new one cost , then deduct for age, condition, and any other Pros or cons.

I can't tell from the picture but i think it might be glass over ply. If so, you could start at maybe $1500. and see what interest it generates.
