What's my boat worth?

I'm considering selling my boat. I checked Nada Guides, and the value it shows does not seem right compared to the market. It is also tough to get value on the accessories added. I would appreciate opinions on what you think I can reasonably expect for this boat should I sell it. Details: 1995 Lund 1600 Angler DLX - this is a side counsel, 16' with 74" beam. 3 Lund seats and 1 but seat. 1995 Johnson 70 HP 1995 Shorelander trailer Condition: The boat is in good condition. Everything works but the horn. Batteries are 2-3 years old. Livewell pump is newer (maybe 4-5 years). Bilge pump is 1 year old. Minimal dock rash. Overall, a nice looking boat considering it is pushing 20 years old. The motor is in excellent condition. Under the cover it still looks new. It starts and runs flawlessly and the compression is within 1 psi of 128 in all three cylinders last time I checked (last summer). T/T work perfectly. The trailer is good, bearing buddies, no rust, good tires. Other items: About 6 years ago I installed a brand new Minn Kota 55 PowerDrive V2 with universal sonar. At the same time I installed a new Eagle fish finder with GPS and lakemaster chip. And finally, it has a custom Lohaus cover. If you aren't familiar with Lohaus covers, they are essentially the best cover money can buy. It is a custom fit canvas cover that fits over the trolling motor, big motor, etc. It fits like a glove and looks awesome. Thanks guys...
