Thumbs up Newbie Here!

Hey Guys,
My name is Matt and im 20. I own a Landscaping Company here in S. FLorida. I've always been really into boats and everything that has to do with them.. My Dad and Uncle had a Powerplay back in 99, and sold it in 2000.. I am looking into possibly Baja, or Fountain, if affordable even a Cigarette.. Towing would not be a problem, I have a 2005 F-250 Lariat. Does anybody have any advice, or tips on how to make what i'm lookign to do possible ? Also, how does buying a boat differ from buying a car or anything else you would finance ??
Thanks in Advance!
-Matt

It was an awesome boat.. It was in MINT condition when it was sold.. The Powerplay was a 25 footer with a 3foot pulpit, so technically it was a 28" .. The Motors were 2 twin 200 black maxs..

I am looking for something that is at least 25+ and is sea-worthy... I'm basically looking for something that I can take out into the Ocean or if I want to goto Bayside or Bimini, It will be good for that.. Not any powerboat racing yet . lol . It would be great if I had some type of cutty or cabin..
