HaHa Right on Tom,
I bought a turn key boat allright,, Turned the key and Blam its a project boat. Get newest, best condition and biggest you can afford, look through all records and buy the seller a few tanks of fuel and run that boat a few times before you buy. You can always count on rebuilding at least one engine pretty soon after you buy, so factor that in.

I went to the Austin Boat Show yesterday looking at boats and shopping for "wet slips" and "dry stack". I found some 28-foot "wet slips" for $1830/year!

http://www.westbeachmarina.com/

I think I need to first grab a slip, second get a truck, and third get a boat!
