Any places selling boats on consignment around Crystal River?

Time to make a change. Already put money down on an Action Craft 1801 "new to me" boat so I need to sell my Century 1860 w 115hp Yamaha & my Terrycraft Jon boat w/vintage Merc 7.5 hp.
I'm in the middle of nowhere between Ocala and Yankeetown on a dirt road that rarely sees any traffic.
Does anyone know of any reputable shops that sell boats on consignment in this area?
Both boats are in good shape and both run good. The 1860 is great for scalloping and inshore but I don't like to get in less than 2 ft with it. The Jon boat engine is a freshwater only engine.
Thanks!

    Depot Florida Consignment sells boats on consignment.  They sold a Keywest for me pretty quickly.

    Yes Depot Florida Consignment is one of the best consignment services in Florida. Search them on google.
    SO WHEN IS THIS "OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER" SUPPOSED TO KICK IN?

    Thanks for the info! I'll check with them next week.....meanwhile I remembered another "problem" I need to deal with. Anyone know of an easier way to mostly drain a gas tank other than squeezing the bulb into a can?

    When I came in the last time I topped the tank off so I wouldn't get condensation inside the tank so now I have 48 gallons of non-ethanol gas in the boat and really rather not give it away. Changing boats was not in the plan but It's deal I can't walk away from.

    You can get a hand pump at harbor freight for your gas issue.

    I use a 12 volt automotive fuel pump.

    MY WORST FEAR......THAT WHEN I DIE MY WIFE WILL SELL ALL MY BOATS & FISHING GEAR FOR WHAT I TOLD HER I PAID FOR IT.......
