Thanks guys for all of the info so far. I have a lot to learn but love the water. One day in the way so distant future I do want a big boat for big water, probably fresh water but maybe even in Florida. For now I'm looking at the 24-25' range. A good friend of my dads use to have a Liberator and it was a pretty solid boat, i'm gonna try and get something like that. Also when I can afford a bigger newer boat, which kind should I be looking at? I'm sure my experience will come, but I really like fountain boats and my research on them so far points me toward that business. Any thoughts?
Anyway thanks again for the advice so far I'm still looking for a boat but don't be suprised if you see me out there soon!!!
