If its has really bad growth(on the bottom) you lose a bunch of speed.
It did have growth on it from being in water. The boat is well maintained engine wise. As far as gps it was my gps hand held meridian color. Boat was sweet and wife likes it but if only was a little faster.

Don't buy a boat at the moment. Wait until everything is right, and feels right. You are just going to lose money. Put the $10K in a bank CD for 6 months so you are not tempted to use it. Open a separate 'boat savings' account with your bank (usually free to open another account) and set up a STEEP weekly/monthly draw from your normal accounts to your new 'boat savings' account (pretty easy to do with online banking). This would be money you were spending to fuel, maintain, store, and insure the mediocre boat if purchased now.

When you have all your ducks in a row financially, you could very feasably have $20K+ in cash, and be looking at a totally different boat purchase.

Keep friendly on the board, frequent the races/poker runs in your area, and you will get plenty of opportunities to be out on boats in the mean time as long as you are in for partial fuel and expenses.

For 10K you could end up with a real sweet deal or a big hole in the water into which you throw money. This is from experience, by the way mine was the hole

Some older 24' Baja should fit those parameters.

Tony,
The classified ad Plum Crazy referenced is my boat. I have done lots of work to it over the past 12 years. I bought the boat in 1993. It is turn key. We moved up in size so we could get out on Lake Michigan. I would love to keep the boat, but the defense dept. says sell. I am motivated. PM if interested.

Paul
